With the RS series we have created a line of acoustic transducers that relays the true character and harmonic structure of voices, instruments and the recording environment, in a degree never experienced before, Truly Extraordinary.
The Superior RS5
21 individual layers of various wood type and thickness21 individual layers of various wood type and thickness
Crafted for medium-sized and larger rooms, the RS5’s 2-1/2 way floorstanding design increases bass output compared to the smaller RS3 to provide more accurate bass weight in larger listening spaces.
The low frequency bass driver is an entirely newconstruction: with a woodfibre cone, that is dynamically optimized with a new solid wood dust cap. This stiffens the cone and ensures perfect piston-like action across the driver’s entire frequency range. The bass/midrange driver is a sliced paper cone woofer, treated with a selected blend of oils, effectively removing any remaining ‘paper’ sounds, resulting in a clearer and more natural midrange reproduction.
GamuT S-Series’ was originally released in 2007 and at that point scaled new heights in musicality relaying the true character and harmonic structure of voices, instruments and the recording environment to an astonishing degree.
The RS series is based on the same principles and the design is very similar. But almost every detail has been changed to create a series of speakers that is even better at doing what the S-series did fantastic!
Revised enclosures, internal network, damping and drivers
Externally, the RS-Series cabinets look almost identical to their predecessors. But the enclosures, internal networks, damping and the drivers are all new. The new curved enclosures consist of 21 individual layers of real wood. This enclosure eliminates distorting resonances and delivers more natural harmonics and a greater 3-dimensional soundstage, while retaining natural tonal balance.
Wormhole cables and reduction in damping
All internal cables are now Gamut’s own Wormhole Signatures: Again, this improvement led to all new internal damping, resulting in a 50% reduction in damping materials while maintaining an optimum damping level.
A new wood-fiber cone bass driver and new midrange driver with a new crossover made the transformation complete. The overall effect is stunning micro- and macro dynamics, natural midrange reproduction with a precise and detailed bass.
