Role Audio Enterprise Speakers ($3,495) Review on Stereomojo

Monday, February 23, 2009

Stereomojo has reviewed the Role Audio Enterprise floorstanding speakers ($3,495/pair). These are two-way designs with dual 4″ midrange drivers in a MTM configuration (photo).

Reviewer Mike Peshkin bi-amped them with an unnamed Nightengale amp and a pair of unnamed Monarchy monoblocks. He also compared them to a pair of unnamed Infinity speakers with side firing powered subwoofers…

His conclusion?

These speakers are easy to set up, and again, sound wonderful. While impressed, I reiterate that for full-range most people will want and NEED a sub. AND, along with good amplification, a cheapo sub is NOT what you’d wish to mate to these speakers.

Read the entire review, then check out the Publisher’s Note at the end. It lists other speakers that represent better values. There was a thread on Audio Asylum about this subject recently. Glad to see at least one publication is naming names!

Problem is the Editor did not see or hear the speakers! Proprietary dual transmission line vented through the front baffle. A speaker that uses midrange drivers and a single capacitor and a coil to deliver 35 Hz to 20,000Hz frequency response. That must require a little research and some degree of difficulty to accomplish. Don’t you think. Plus there are several reviews! All available on line for all to see. All positive. One reviewer notes that the Enterprise represents some of the best cabinet work he has seen over his very long career.
