https://www.rio.com.au/product/system-audio-ranger-master-floor-stand-speakers/ I've had these little beauties for just over 10 weeks now. I'm semi regularly auditioning Speakers, plus my music mate said "You have too many Amps, you need another set of Speakers" (5 pair before purchase). Well I went out and purchased another 2 pair of Speakers! These Speakers really took my eye being "slimline" and the little info. I could find on these Danish beauties was positive. Have to say on audition and with only mid range Electronics these bettered or equalled Speakers costing up to 10k that I had auditioned previously. In fact I prefer these to some Mega Dollar Speakers I've heard personally. So I put down a deposit and picked them up 3 weeks later, 2nd week of May. First up a warning, the base of the Speakers need to be filled with Kiln dried sand and having the handyman skills of Homer Simpson, what a PITA! Once set-up the Speakers took roughly 100 hours to settle in. There is a little bit of brightness initially but this does settle down. They are beautifully finished in Black Piano Gloss and also come in White Gloss for those that prefer. The SA Ranger Masters are deserving of high quality Electronics and will easily reveal differences in Amplifiers. They require quite a substantial amount of high quality Power/Current. They easily reveal the Iron-Fisted Grip, Control and Slam of the sublime Vincent SP-998 Mono Blocks. The lovely warmth and punch of the Vincent SP-T700 Mono's. The refinement and smoothness of the upgraded Benchmark Plexus. The brutal force of the Vincent SP-994 and also showed up the limitations of the budget Emotiva XPA-2. The SA Ranger Masters are the fastest Speaker I've ever heard! Comments from a few music mates, "Great Attack!" Another mate "Surprise Speaker of the Decade" "Incredibly resolving and transparent" "I was staggered when you took the blindfold off, they sound huge!" And yes, very nice soundstage and as mentioned extremely transparent. The Speakers just disappear and let the music envelop you. Bass doesn't plummet the deepest depths, but is incredibly fast, punchy resolving and realistic. These are a fantastic "Big Rock" & Rock & Roll Speaker. Celibate Rifles superb Live Album "Yizgarnnoff" and you feel the sweat pouring off Lovelock, Steedman and co. The atmosphere from Ed, Mark & Co. on the brilliant "Character Assassination". You drift off into Psych Heaven with Wooden Shjips gorgeous "V". Mos Generator's "In Concert" will pin you to the wall! These Speakers are a Rock Drumming Lover's delight. Kick, Tom's, Snare convincingly reproduced. Vocals through the entire range are faithfully conveyed, Cymbals sparkle, although don't hit as hard as my Revel Ultima Studios. No listener fatigue, which can plague many Speakers is experienced. These Speakers are masterfully designed and engineered with 2 x 4" Woofers handling bass duties only, 2 x 4" Woofers handling bass/mid's & a 1" Dome Tweeter for the high's. Internally wired with Nordost Cable. They are also the quietest Speaker I've experienced with no music playing and Amps cranked up. Complete with 5 year Warranty. Out of all the Speakers (that I don't own) that I've auditioned over recent years, there is only one other that I nearly purchased. Aurum Cantus V10F, a more refined Speaker. That the SA Ranger Master was purchased brand new for a fraction of the cost of all the others at the Discontinued Model price made it a No-Brainer. Highly Recommended.
