Selling my Alta Rhea speakers. I believe the finish is rosewood. These speakers have sounded exceptional throughout my entire time of ownership. The ribbon produces very detailed, sweet highs. It is seamless with the 7" driver. Probably the most seamless hand off of any speaker I've had. Mid-range is glorious and the bass due to the transmission line, is incredibly deep and tight. There is an amazing amount of sound coming from this cabinet.
I have the bases that they rest on and all parts along with cones. I will include silver plated copper jumpers made by Mark Tunis at no charge...a $300 value.
Local pick up is preferred but I will ship if necessary. Unless doing friends and family, please add 3.5% for PayPal fees.
Alta Audio created the Rhea to satisfy music lovers with an appetite for lifelike sonics if not the room for a full-size tower loudspeaker.
Rhea creates the space and specificity of the concert hall with all the power of live performance. Created using the same XTL* Bass (patent pending) transmission line and DampHard cabinet construction on the faceplate as our highly reviewed Celesta FRM-2M speakers, the Rhea presents all the intimate details of three-dimensional images from the front to the deepest parts of the concert hall.
A black seven-inch midrange/woofer blends smoothly and seamlessly with the five-inch pure ribbon tweeter, creating a sound that can move a listener to tears.
*Extended Transmission Line—Alta Audio’s proprietary technology that applies sonic geometry to tune speaker cabinets as if they are musical instruments, delivering an accurate, fast, and powerful low frequency response.
