    RF-7iii or RP-8000F for Small Room?

    Did you get to compare them to the RF7 II? I’m sure they sound great. It just makes no sense that they offer a piano finish in a model that costs half as much. My home is very modern, that’s the reason I don’t have a heritage home theater.

    RF-7iii or RP-8000F for Small Room?

    I have 4 pair of original RF-7’s and a pair of RF-7II that I’m very happy with. I have not heard the RF-7III yet. I really wasn’t happy that they went back to the cheap looking fronts. I’m sure the RF-7III’s sound great but I’m disappointed in the design. Just yesterday I was in Best Buy magnolia and saw the new RP8000’s. Mine doesn’t carry the RF-7III. I didn’t get a chance to listen to them but they looked amazing. The piano finish looked incredible in person. If they offered the same finish in RF-7III I’d already have a pair. I did have the RP160’s and really liked the new horn. If I were you I’d try to listen to the 8000’s. There’s some dealers that would make you a killer deal on them. I bet they sound great and would save you quite a bit of cash. Sounds like you’ve got the bass covered. Especially if you’re doing mostly home theater. If you’re going to do more music, maybe the RF-7III would be worth the extra money.

    Wanted RB-75’s. Maybe RB-5’s

    RB-75’s don’t come up often. I’ve owned them and they were very good. I also owned the RB-5’s and didn’t care for them. The newer RP-160’s I was very impressed with. Some places had them on sale for 300 a pair shipped recently. They’re on eBay pretty often around 300 shipped as well. Another option if you get the the Fry’s emails they just had the RB61 II’s for $190 with promo code. Best of luck

    Would these work well as surrounds with RF-7?

    I agree with teaman. I’ll just add that the RB81’s are pretty large speakers. If you have the room for them, they’re great. If you haven’t seen them in person check the specs. I have 7 RF7II’s for surround and I’ve been playing with downsizing them. RS62’s are nice, but hard to find. The RS52’s pop up quite often and for good prices. They don’t give up much to the RS62, and they’ll hang nicely on a wall. Good luck with your system. I think you’ll be happy whichever you choose.

    The most I got out of it is that he found a pair of speakers in the trash and is trying to sell them for $740 lol

    KLF 20 wanted

    What’s Your location? I don’t have a pair but a few have been for sale locally near me. Shipping would usually kill the deal on something like this.

    Definitely a deal if it’s legit. Seems a little fishy

    custom upgraded heresy, Ithica NY

    I don’t know what it is about me and this color blue. I absolutely love it. When I find it in things I buy it. I don’t know where I’d use these. Each system I have better speakers in but I kind of feel like I need them lol
