All new reference premiere line, RP-6000F VS RP-260F / 280F?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I'm new in the forum, and got in here because I was tempted to get the reference premiere RP-260F floorstanders,  like it more the 280F, but I prefer to be just right in the middle between the 250 and 280, and compensating with a subwoofer the smaller 6,5" woofers of the 260F.

 

Anyway, I got to the store and they run out of the RP-260F, and not getting any RP-250/260/280F anymore, since, as they said, Klipsch is replacing them with the "all new reference premiere" rp line, to be said; 5000, 6000 and 8000F respectively. (BTW, I'm not in the states, so I'm not buying directlty from Klipsch, crutchfield, BB, others, handling, taxes, and mostly, shipping)

 

They still have a pair of RP-280F, and they're also expecting a shipment of RP-5000/6000/8000F in the next few weeks.

 

Have you guys any thoughts about the comparable RP-6000F with the one I wanted to buy?, the RP-260F? (same woofers size), how would it compare the RP-6000F with the available RP-280F? The price of these two are almost the same here.

 

Thanks in advance for your advice!

Welcome to the forum. First have heard of the new RP lineup. Others may know. We have several RP-280-F owners here. One who is pretty happy with the choice. If the numbers mean anything, it should indicate, as have other reference speakers here, size of the woofer difference of 6 inch versus 8 inch, such as the 280's. Hope this helps and others will chime in, in due course of time.

Welcome!

If you plan to add center and surrounds hen get the 6000 so other stuff will match. Otherwise you will be forced to find matching stuff on the used market.
