Samson Rubicon 5a Powered Studio Monitors feature incredible Ribbon HF Transducers.
Some things are just better than others. CDs are better than tape cassettes, 24-bit stuff sounds better than 16-bit stuff, and Ribbon high frequency drivers sound better than cone-type drivers. Ribbon drivers have virtually no mass so the audio signal is converted to sound very efficiently with virtually no distortion. Ribbon HF drivers are completely neutral and accurate. Because of their wider dispersion they produce incredible stereo imaging and are about as close to the invisible box ideal that you can get. The only drawback of Ribbon drivers was that they were very expensive, until now. Samson Rubicon monitors feature 2 inch Velocity Ribbon drivers for flawless audio response at a breakthrough price. Rubicon monitors are bi-amped with integrated crossover circuits to provide crystal clean power for the HF drivers. The custom designed woofers deliver effortless and accurate bass reproduction. Rubicon enclosures are shielded and front ported with 4-position HF controls that allow you to adjust the high end to suit the room. Now you can hear the music the way it was played instead of the way your speakers play the music.
