Strong and sleek, the Rega RS7 sound as good as they look. Their unique bass driver design allows for customization of your sound. You can set up your speakers, depending on your room size, with the drivers facing inward or outward to achieve your desired sound. The Rega RS7s have great imaging, fine musical coherence and airy openness that will satisfy any listener’s needs.
Featuring a two and half way driver system enclosed in a quarter wave transmission line, the the RS7s produce an accurate and natural low frequency response. This is matched with a well balanced mid range and exceptional high frequency response, thanks to the Rega designed tweeter HF20-ZRR unit and the bass/mid RR125 unit.
The RS7 uses the new HF20-ZRR high frequency unit which is uniquely designed by Rega. By removing unwanted rear reflection the design of the ZRR tweeter helps maintain a distortion-free response.
Rega's RR7.8 side-firing 7" bass driver uses an 8-layer voice coil and therefore requires no additional crossover. This unique design concept makes the RS7 extremely flexible and suitable for almost all room environments. The side-firing system allows easy positioning of the loudspeakers. The system can offer improved soundstage/dynamics and also allows the RS7 to cope well in difficult rooms.
In most environments Rega suggests aiming the side units outwards. This can offer improved soundstaging, however in some situations this may slightly blur the positioning of instruments and vocals. In such a case it is advisable to switch the speakers over and face the side units toward each other, which can improve the balance.
