We constantly seek refinement, and with R5 Signature we have made subtle but incremental changes to make the product even better.
Most obvious is the piano lacquer finish with machined alloy rose gold detailing, giving the premium look desired. Creating a true piano finish is a painstaking task that involves building the finish in multiple layers with hand sanding between coats. Once the final coat is applied, the lacquer is wet sanded with a very fine grit abrasive and then hand buffed and polished to a glass-like finish.
Conventional methods of finishing do not compare with the lustre level that this process provides, and neither are they as long lasting nor hard wearing. In terms of sound, the multiple layers of lacquer also add rigidity to the enclosure resulting in extra clarity.
