Pair of Samson Rubicon R5A Studio monitors with Ribbon tweeters. Lightly used for a few years off and on then placed in storage. They will be hooked up and ready to audition at my Guitar/Recording/Pro Audio/Computer/Electronics garage sale on Cinder Village DR in Sparks, this Saturday and Sunday from 8am to 3pm.

British electronic music magazine Sound on Sound had these as their #2 Recommended monitor in their monthly top 10 for a while. Full review from them is here:

https://www.soundonsound.com/reviews/samson-rubicon-5a-6a

Key takeaway from the review:

"Despite my preconceptions, I have to concede that the Rubicons offer extraordinarily good value, without sacrificing any significant element of their audio performance that would get in the way of you doing a good mix. Corners have been cut to achieve the price, but it seems to me that they've been cut in the right places..."

"...There are probably only four or five active monitors that I'd entertain for anything like serious studio use at under £400 per pair in the UK, but I'd have to add the Rubicons to this list."

We are up in Wingfield Springs off of Hubble drive. Click the "more ads by this user" button to see lots more things for sale this weekend.
