The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

The Samson Resolv RXA5 unites the latest advances in speaker technology and active electronics to create a true reference, professional studio monitor with a flat frequency response. This 2-way active studio reference monitor delivers the sonic elements that are essential to any studio - precise audio imaging for recording, mixing, mastering and all multimedia applications.

At the core of the RXA5 (70 watts, 50Hz-27kHz) is Samson's newly-developed Air Displacement Ribbon Tweeter. The 2.5" aluminum tweeter's corrugated ribbon design is able to move four times the air of a standard dome tweeter. The result is a linear response with extended high frequency, accurate phase response and extremely low distortion. In addition, the speaker's 5" copolymer woofer with butyl coating forces a fast recovery and quick transient response for tight, low-end performance.

The RXA5 offers separate amps for both the woofer and the tweeter thanks to the bi-amplified design. This ensures serious dynamic headroom and reduces intermodulation distortion by optimizing the power efficiency of the monitor's traditional Class A/B amplifier. The RXA5 also features a multi-pole crossover that's perfectly adjusted to the tuning of the monitor's components, providing optimal performance and maximum SPL.

The RXA5 brings a high level of versatility to your studio setup. Connections can be made via balanced 1/4" and XLR inputs, as well as unbalanced RCA inputs to directly engage MP3 players, computers and more. In addition to a large center-detented Volume knob, the RXA5 has dedicated high and low frequency EQ knobs for optimizing the monitor to the specific sound characteristics of a given space. The monitor is constructed of solid Medium Density Fingerboards (MDF) with a vinyl-wrapped finish, resulting in a durable, yet stylish design that would benefit the reliability and look of any studio.

Great for electronic music production, the RXA5's Air Displacement Ribbon Tweeter accurately reproduces the crisp highs of popular synths and vocals, while its copolymer woofer delivers natural depth to kick drum and bass tracks. A pair of RXA5's is the perfect monitor setup for a variety of applications, including DJ setups, delivering seamless transitions with the zero resonance design of the RXA5.

By displacing four times more air than traditional reference monitors, a pair of RXA5s allows studio engineers to better hear the subtle details of recorded instruments and work them into the mix. Mic placement, room ambiance, amp settings, instrument materials and other intricate performance qualities will be preserved by the RXA5, allowing you to build unique, lush mixes that will sound good on any system.

Tyhe RXA5s are ideal for producing pro-level audio in a number of situations outside of the studio, too. Use them as desktop speakers to enjoy studio-quality sound when watching movies or gaming online with friends. Designed to provide fatigue-free music playback for hours on end, the RXA5 is great for the audiophile who simply wants to relax and enjoy their favorite tracks. With the RXA5, your music and multimedia listening experience will be elevated to a whole new level.

Combining a sleek design, high-end components and meticulous engineering, Samson's Resolv RXA5 studio monitor offers a true reference sound with no unnecessary color and distracting hype, just precise audio imaging for authentic and critical sound reproduction.
