RB 5's compare to newer models?

Recommended Posts

Pd. $99. For RB 5s, my first pair of klipsch and wondered how they would

Compare to the newer model bookshelfs. Have them paired w/Elac

6.2's. And always my problem of 

Balancing 6 & 8 Ohm. Speakers.

Looking at the 600m for black Friday this year among others. Thanks. Dale.

600M's aren't an upgrade, if that's what you're thinking.  The only bookshelf I'd take over the RB-5's is the RB-75.  $99 was a steal for what you've got.  Put a good amp with them and you've got a floorstanding speaker in the form factor of a bookshelf.

I actually preferred the RB-5's and RB-5 ll's over the RB-75's in near field listening. At one point I had RB-81 ll's, RB-5 ll's and RB-75's at the same time. I preferred the RB-5 ll's in my office for my computer system. Very nice speakers. You scored big time at $99!

I would not bother unless you just need a second set of speakers.  You may think the high frequency on the RP is cleaner but for what you purchased the RB5s for, it wouldn't make sense to try and upgrade?? unless you sold the RB5s for the extra cash and just want to try something else.  The RB5s are excellent for what they are and you stole them for $99.
