THE RETHM SAADHANA

Our largest model was designed to deliver a no-compromise performance that epitomizes all the attributes that Rethm Loudspeakers are known for. The tonal purity, the coherence, the dynamics, the imaging that only great wide-band high-efficiency designs are capable of exhibiting in its quest to get to its reason-de-etre – the natural, eerily realistic portrayal of performances that immediately enables an emotional connection between listener and music.

The Saadhana moves the performance up yet another level. And the heart of his exceptional loudspeaker is our new custom-made 7 inch wide-bander. This driver delivers an unbelievable midrange and, belying conventional wisdom, an even better high-frequency reproduction than its smaller siblings. And, it of course reproduces frequencies all the way down into the midbass region. We have found that, all else being equal, larger diameter wide-banders do tend to reproduce a more natural, liquid and flowing midrange. But yes, there are limits to this rule as well of course…. and beyond a certain size, high frequency performance is bound to be affected.

As this was a total redesign from ground up, we took the opportunity to make this a “one-box” design… and eliminate the several problems our previous two-box units had in terms of user-friendliness. The completely redesigned bass section has three 7 inch custom designed bass drivers set in a unique double-isobaric system, with the last drivers loading a 4 foot long horn to increase acoustic output and dynamics. The bass is powered by a 120 wpc amplifier in each enclosure, and has a volume control. It also incorporates a low-pass filter that is continuously variable between 75hz and 150hz. This user adjustable filter combined with volume attenuation allows for total control of bass integration in virtually any room.

We take great pride in the speed, tightness, control and seamless integration of the bass with the music emanating out of the full-range drivers. This is where a huge amount of our work went into.

While all our loudspeakers have similar attributes, and hearing any one of them will tell you it is a Rethm, the Saadhana just takes each of these attributes to its highest level with higher and smoother highs, a beautifully detailed and yet refined midrange, and extremely deep and authoritative bass…… which all comes together to get one even closer to the music.

The Saadhana is recommended for rooms up to 800 sq.ft. ( 80 sq.m. ).
