Samson's Resolv RXA5 2-Way Active Studio Reference Monitor delivers the sonic elements that are essential to any studio setup.

Studio Bliss
Uniting the latest advances in speaker technology and active electronics, the RXA5 is a true reference, professional studio monitor with a flat frequency response with no hype, just precise audio imaging for recording, mixing, mastering and other multimedia applications.

Ribbon Resolved
At the core of the RXA5 (70 watts, 50Hz–27kHz) is Samson's newly-developed Air Displacement Ribbon Tweeter. The 2.5" aluminum tweeter's corrugated ribbon design is able to move four times the air of a standard dome tweeter. The result is a linear response with extended high frequency, accurate phase response and extremely low distortion. In addition, the speaker's 5" copolymer woofer with butyl coating forces a fast recovery and quick transient response for tight, low-end performance.

Active Electronics
The RXA5 employs a bi-amplified design, offering separate amps for both the woofer and tweeter. This optimizes the power efficiency of the monitor's traditional Class A/B amplifier, ensuring serious dynamic headroom and reducing intermodulation distortion. The RXA5 also features a multi-pole crossover that's perfectly adjusted to the tuning of the monitor's components, providing optimal performance and maximum SPL.

Adapt To Your Surroundings
The RXA5 brings a high level of versatility to your studio setup. Connections can be made via balanced 1/4" and XLR inputs, as well as unbalanced RCA inputs to directly engage MP3 players, computers and more. In addition to a large center-dented Volume knob, the RXA5 has dedicated high and low frequency EQ knobs for optimizing the monitor to the specific sound characteristics of a given space. The monitor is constructed of solid Medium Density Fingerboards (MDF) with a vinyl-wrapped finish, resulting in a durable, yet stylish design that would benefit the reliability and look of any studio.  

Electronic Music Production
A pair of RXA5s is the perfect monitor setup for a variety of applications, including electronic music production. The RXA5's Air Displacement Ribbon Tweeter accurately reproduces the crisp highs of popular synths and vocals, while its copolymer woofer delivers natural depth to kick drum and bass tracks. DJs can also enjoy seamless transitions given the zero resonance design of the RXA5.

Engineering With Instruments
By displacing four times more air than traditional reference monitors, a pair of RXA5s allows studio engineers to better hear the subtle details of recorded instruments and work them into the mix. Mic placement, room ambiance, amp settings, instrument materials and other intricate performance qualities will be preserved by the RXA5, allowing you to build unique, lush mixes that will sound good on any system.

Just Listen
Beyond the studio, a set of RXA5s is ideal for producing pro-level audio in a number of situations. Use them as desktop speakers to enjoy studio-quality sound when watching movies or gaming online with friends. Designed to provide fatigue-free music playback for hours on end, the RXA5 is great for the audiophile who simply wants to relax and enjoy their favorite tracks. With the RXA5, your music and multimedia listening experience will be elevated to a whole new level.

Combining a sleek design, high-end components and meticulous engineering, Samson's Resolv RXA5 studio monitor offers a true reference sound with no unnecessary color and distracting hype, just precise audio imaging for authentic and critical sound reproduction.

            The RXA Series of studio monitors by Samson are the least expensive monitors you'll find with the coveted Ribbon Tweeters. Ribbon Tweeters will reach the 3rd order harmonics that make cymbals come alive, violins sing, and guitars scream.

            To find these this high-cost option in this friendly of a price in unreal.

              With 70 watts of power the Samson RXA5 can dish out an amazing sound. The ribbon tweeter makes the highs sing! Since they are sold individually you can easily make a killer 5.1 surround sound system. I am a sales associate @ Sam Ash Ontario.

                    I have a high-end turntable and wanted to listen to my records on some speakers that were above average so I got these ribbon monitors by Samson.
                    They simply sound amazing.

                      The accuracy you get with these monitors in this price range is incredible. Very smooth highs with out being overly hyped and overly bass heavy like some monitors in the price range which is key when picking a studio monitor. So if you want accuracy at a price that wont break the bank these speakers are it!

                      These Resolv AX5s are a replacement of the older Samson Rubicon models but with newer updated features. The 2.5" Aluminum Ribbon tweeter delivers silky smooth high frequencies and the response from the speaker is quite flat. However with a 5inch speaker the bass response is a little weak seeing as the woofer can only accurately produce so much in the lower frequencies. For home recording studios or even just as play back speakers these are a great deal.

                        When I heard the new Resolves, I was blown away. They sound great, and listening to tracks I'm very familiar with showed me that they are extremely true in replicating sound, so you can rest assured that if it sounds good mixed with these, it will sound great anywhere. I was also surprised at how many high end features these new monitors had, not the least of which, a real ribbon tweeter.
