RMAF Show Report – The Absolute Sound

Alta_Rhea

Especially given their modest price tag of $4495 the pair, I was quite impressed by the Rhea, a product of Alta Audio of Bridgeport, Connecticut. These two-way floorstanders have a reported frequency response specification of 32Hz to 47kHz; bass power is prodigious for a speaker this size, thanks to a transmission-line design and innovative cabinet construction. Orchestral colors on the Shostakovich disc were beautifully represented and acoustic bass had wonderful body and weight on small-group jazz recordings. Its graceful form factor and a wide choice of finishes assure compatibility with virtually any domestic decorating style
