Samson's Resolv RXA6 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 RXA6 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 RXA6 (100 watts, 45Hz–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 6" copolymer woofer with butyl coating forces a fast recovery and quick transient response for tight, low-end performance.

Active Electronics
The RXA6 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 RXA6 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 RXA6 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 RXA6 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 RXA6s is the perfect monitor setup for a variety of applications, including electronic music production. The RXA6'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 RXA6.

Engineering With Instruments
By displacing four times more air than traditional reference monitors, a pair of RXA6s 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 RXA6, allowing you to build unique, lush mixes that will sound good on any system.

Just Listen
Beyond the studio, a set of RXA6s 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 RXA6 is great for the audiophile who simply wants to relax and enjoy their favorite tracks. With the RXA6, 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 RXA6 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 10 watts of power the Samson RXA6 can dish out an amazing sound with much more bass than the A5 . 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.

                    These speakers are excellent studio monitor speakers. I like that Samson was able to bring back ribbon tweeters like when they had the Rubicon series. They're a great choice for pro quality on a budget. I am a sales associate at Sam Ash Music, Lyndhurst.

                    These new Resolv monitors replaced the Samson Rubicon series speakers and they did for a reason. The new aluminum ribbon tweeter is more accurate and the 6 inch woofer has a very accurate flat response. Not quite the booming bass you would get out of an 8inch monitor but present enough to get a quality mix done. If you are searching for ribbon tweeter monitors on a budget this is where you want to be.

                      This speaker is a pleasant surprise. Didn't see much information about it aside from an ad in Mix Magazine. A pair have been on practically 24/7 and so far no burn out. These monitors are a fraction of the price of most other ribbon speakers, yet they don't skimp on quality. These have superior detail and imaging compared to most other studio monitors at this price point. They also put out a good amout of bass for speakers smaller than 8". Some people feel ribbon speakers are bright, but you can adjust the high and low frequencies on the back. It's amazing for far (and more affordable) technology has progressed.

                        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.

                        I was out of state working on a project with a buddy, and unforunatley one of his monitors died out during an intense mix session. So we took what little money we had and went to the local sam ash to hopefully find affordable but quality studio monitors on our tight budget. What the Sales person recommended we're these new resolvs and I gotta say, we scored big time with these. Not only were they priced modestly but they had a nice clear and open stereo image, which is crucial for mixing. You wouldn't know it at first glance but after using them to mix an albums worth of material, this pair of monitors has found a permanent home in our lab. I recommend these to anybody looking for a b set of monitors to compliment their home set up. Definatley worth the money.
