Although Rega is famous for their turntables, they do have a full line of components in their product offerings. AVReview UK has an excellent review of Rega R5 floorstanding speakers.
"The majority of loudspeakers at the more affordable price points tend to have a fairly safe and sensible balance - they pump up the bass a little and smooth off the treble so that they sound bigger than they really are and not too challenging. Rega’s R5 eschews this approach and gives you an uncompromised version of events, which means that it sounds distinctly different right from the off - there is a dryness to the presentation that makes for an explicit and upfront but not bright musical experience."A fact of interest is that these boxes can be placed against a wall without loss of bass.
