Question for RJR: Dali Ikon vs Monitor RS-6

When you reviewed the Dali Ikon 6, you implied in your final wrap-up comparisons that the Monitor Audio RS-6 was the better speaker, yet in the recomended components issue The Dali is mentioned in Class C, and not the RS-6.

Could you clarify this for me?

I believe this is correct; Bob Reina noted the Monitor Audio's extended highs, greater inner detail and delicacy, superior bass, and wider dynamic contrasts. The Monitor Audio RS-6 appears in Class B.

I see it know. It is in the "Class B Restricted LF" section.

Do you know what differentiates "Full Range" from "Restricted LF", in terms of bass extension?

The review seems to indicate that this speaker is not lacking in bass response.

Thanks!

"Full-range" means the speaker has bass extension down to 20Hz. "Restricted Extreme LF" indicates that the speaker misses the last few hertz of low-bass extension, still, however, going down to at least 40Hz.
