Gamut's RS7

Danish speaker manufacturer Gamut showed its new RS7 speaker at CES. Costing $39,900/pair, the RS7 is basically the smaller RS5 ($31,990/pair) that I favorably reported on in our 2014 RMAF report with an extra woofer mounted above the tweeter to give a full three-way design. The beautifully profiled cabinet is made from compressed layers of veneer to give a rigid but well-damped enclosure.

With the RS7s driven by Gamut's own amplification and unique, leather-covered speaker cables, Gary Karr's double-bass reading of Albinoni's Adagio sounded rich and detailed, with well-defined imaging.
