Roberts Acoustics at RMAF
« on: 16 Sep 2008, 09:02 pm »
AC'ers,

We will be in room 441 at RMAF and will have on hand plenty of goodies for you to enjoy.  I am looking forward to getting more exposure for our speaker offerings, it is hard to get a market foothold without reviews etc. so now you can all be the judge of our sound.

I have listed what we are bringing below, be sure to stop by with your favorite tunes and let us know what you think!

Speakers:
Roberts Acoustics Rapide and Mercury and their matching subs
Mark & Daniel Sapphires

Electronics:
Vincent SP-T800 Monoblocks and SA-T8 preamp both from their new premium line
PS Audio A-100 and P-200
PS Audio DAC Link 3 running from a Macbook via USB and also from a transport
PS Audio GCPH phono stage

Power & Cabling:
PS Audio Juice Bar 2 and Power Plant Premier
PS Audio Power cabling
Kimber Speaker cable and IC's

Analog:
Cross my fingers I should have a Scoutmaster on hand to spin vinyl!

Will also have a pair of Mark & Daniel Minis and our own Mercury monitor and sub in the room to show off, they are both quite incredible for their size.

Hi. I thought the Roberts speakers with Vincent electronics sounded impressive.  The system setup was tonally balanced with very good clarity/detail and without treble glare.  I thought it was the best sounding system in the $5,000-$10,000 price point.  As soon as I can make sense of my notes, I will post a more comprehensive show report in one of the general RMAF circle threads.

Also we are again offering the Rapides in Red, we had some paint issues at first but have resolved them now if anyone is interested in their own little Ferarri's  :wink:.

Darn, I really wanted to hear your speakers Sam ... but seems like I never get over to that second tower since I can only sneak out of my room for 5-10 minutes at a time.  We were showing in the other tower on the 9th floor.  I'm sure they sound excellent, and clearly are a screaming good deal!

We duct-taped the latch so we didn't prop the door like many did, unfortunately it seems a few times it did get stuck as we had someone else come back who said they couldn't get in the first time...I guess we need to find another way, I hate leaving it propped on the safety latch as so much more external sound gets in...

We were all very impressed with Roberts Acoustics at the show. We look forward to working with them on some reviews.

Another report with more pics: http://www.positive-feedback.com/Issue39/rmaf084.htm

Also I just posted to our site a new upgrade I have been testing for the Rapide as well which adds Mundorf Silver/Oil caps to the woofer (same caps used on tweeter), and Bybee Quantum Purifiers on all drivers for $800.  This was not ready for RMAF and the pair we showed there was the $2399 standard version.   For $3199 the upgraded model offers superior resolution without adding any hardness to the sound.

Hi Sam,

You are offering a lot of speaker for the price that you are selling them.

I hope you sell a bucket load of them. 

Are you going to have them reviewed?

Regards

Rod

Thanks for the kind words Rod, I am working with several people who inquired about reviews at the show so hopefully you will be seeing something soon. 

Below are the retail prices on what we showed at RMAF, we got lots of positive comments on the sound despite not using anything ridiculously expensive. This system can be built brick by brick and the monitors are an easy load so they do not need a monster amp like the Vincents we showed with to power them.
 
Speakers- Roberts Acoustics Rapide Monitors $2399, Roberts Acoustics Vigor Subwoofer $899

Amplification- Vincent Audio SP-T800 Monoblock Amplifier $2449 each, Vincent SA-T8 Preamplifier $2499

Sources- PS Audio DAC Link III $995, PS Audio GCPH Phono Stage $995, VPI Table/Benz MC20L, Macbook Laptop with Apple Lossless files

Power- PS Audio Power Plant Premier $2195, PS Audio Juice Bar II $199

Cables- Kimber Kable Interconnects, Kimber Bi-Focal X Speaker Cables, Kimber USB cable, PS Audio Prelude and Punch Power Cords

Accessories- Tone Dynamics Acoustic Panels $40 and up, VTI Stands $200
