Need RP series help

Recommended Posts

Trying to understand what differentiates the new RP series (e.g. RP-8000f) from the prior model (e.g. RP-280f), and also the prior model (e.g. RP-280f) from it's predecessor (e.g. the RF-82 II).  Even the RF-82 II has cerametallic woofers and titamium tweeters.   Trying mainly to decide whether its worth springing for the new model vs. one of the older which can be had at discounts.  I'm sure that some of this forum's regulars would know this.  Muchas Gracioso!!

While you wait is economy a part of your search or, is getting the latest model?

Please excuse the question but this may come up later.

Yes confusion yet enough members have experience in the

various Premier line ...

Money is not a big factor, but like to feel like I'm getting the best value that's why I was wondering just how much improvement was really made in newer models

The RF-82' come up from Fry's for a decent deal

With Free shipping...

Welcome to the forum, even though you have been here a couple of months.

 

If you can get the new model RPs for a decent price, then go for it.  You will find it easier to add the "matching" surrounds later if you choose to go that route.  From my understanding, the last generation RPs are very similar to the current models with very slight cosmetic changes.  Speaking about RF-82II(Reference V), great prices on the used market as well as the rare NOS low prices from the mentioned Fry's.

 

Just one note, the used market is your friend and don't hesitate to scan your local market for some gems that are waiting to be scooped up. 

Just ask @Youthman about his finest score.

All the above bought on craigslist for a crazy stupid low price which was a fraction of what it cost new.
