Rethm and Metronome: They Do Belong Together
Not only do Metronome electronics and Rethm loudspeakers seem inextricably bound together by a common musical cause (footnote 1), but they also make great sound. As we await notification of model numbers and prices, as well as other components and cabling in the chain, I recall the warmth and beauty with which this system conveyed soprano Elly Ameling’s radiant voice. Rethm’s single-driver loudspeakers didn’t plumb the lower reaches of the piano as do other loudspeakers with dedicated woofers and intelligent crossover and cabinet design, but the sound of the system’s mids and highs was superb.
Footnote 1: This is my admittedly feeble attempt at a pun. Rethm, as in rhythm, and metronome, as in keeping time. Get it? Pathetic? Perhaps we all need to don Leland Leard’s red glasses and take a shot of something or other.
