It is difficult not to get excited about the Rosinante Evolution Signature, the lower-priced of two speaker designs offered by Ric Cummins, the brains behind Rosinante.
Rosinante literature suggests that the shape of the speaker, coupled with the material used, produces what Rosinante claims is a "complex, asymmetric form to eliminate reflections and standing waves.
Rosinante has modified each of these drivers in one more step to achieve the sound of the speaker.
Rosinante advertises a frequency response of 28-22,000 Hz; its other published specifications are that the speaker has a nominal impedance of 8 ohms with a sensitivity rating of 93 dB.
The recording also points to the pedigree of the Rosinante crossover, as those stupendous depths ascend toward the 88th key.
Such is the promise of an excellent sound source when heard through the Rosinante Evolution Signature.
Yes, the Rosinante Evolution Signatures are visually striking, and no doubt are fine performers; however, I must report that two other staffers who have had experience with the Rosinantes have been less impressed than SGB, especially given the high price of these speakers.

If you are willing to settle for the limitations of speakers featuring a driver complement of just two midwoofers and a tweeter, the Dunlavy SC-IIs are probably the way to go, at a much lower cost than the Rosinante Evolution Signatures.
