Rega RX5 loudspeakers – excellent

Rega RX5 loudspeakers – excellent

A fine, used pair of Rega RX5 speakers in excellent condition. Cherry veneer, still quite pale. Grilles were tucked away in the boxes at the time we took the photos. They have the spikes too! Full as new warranty applies.

Also, a similarly mint pair of RX 5s in walnut veneer.

The RX-FIVE’s are a medium sized floorstanding  loudspeaker with a dedicated side firing bass driver. Bass response and imaging can be tuned by adjusting the distance of the speaker from the rear and side walls. As with all loudspeakers, this will be dependant on the size of room, flooring and furnishings, therefore some simple experiments trying different distances will help optimise the performance to your surroundings. The bass can be adjusted to suit the room. You can position the side firing speakers inwards or outwards to obtain the best results. Usually, outwards is best.
