Description

Perlisten R4b Bookshelf Speaker

The Perlisten R4b Bookshelf Speaker is designed to be mounted on optional stand, or mounted to a wall with our tilt swivel bracket. Sharing “trickle-down” technology from our flagship S-Series, the DPC-Array here based on three 26mm domes, guarantees excellent directivity control and timbre matching with all R-Series speakers. The Silk diaphragms developed ground up, chosen specifically their smooth, effortless representation of midrange and treble. The 165mm woofer is made from our proprietary HPF pulp, two years in development, bringing new technology to one of the oldest materials used in loudspeaker design. The R4b is great for mains in a smaller room or part of 2.1 systems as well as a timbre matched option as surround for larger R-Series based home cinemas.

BREATHTAKING SOUND
The most advanced loudspeaker to date! When only the highest fidelity matters most. Featuring our proprietary DPC-Array controlling Mid/High frequencies and centered by our finest 28mm Beryllium dome and dual 28mm TPCD ultra-lightweight domes. All transducers are developed from the ground up by our engineers, based on decades of research and culminating in this world class design. All S Series speakers share the same DPC-Array and benefit from our unique timbre matching technique. The entire series utilizes our Beryllium dome tweeters and our advanced Carbon fiber bass/mid drivers. These speakers can be configured as bass reflex or acoustic suspension to meet the demands of any listening room for true full-range performance with unparalleled dynamic range and musical finesse.

THIN PLY CARBON DIAPHRAGM
The (TPCD) TexTreme carbon fiber used in our midrange drive units is also the key to the performance of our woofers, resulting in lighter-than-air dynamics and the impact you expect in a flagship Speaker that can play down to 20Hz in-room. This technology is 30% lighter than standard carbon fiber of the same thickness, with increased strength from using the unique process of stacking multiple layers. The unique weave is unmistakable and distributes break-up modes without sharp response peaks, while extending bandwidth. Simply perfect.

 

DIRECTIVITY PATTERN CONTROL
DPC (Patent Pending) – We teamed up with companies in the USA and Sweden to bring modern materials technology to hi-fi, utilizing advanced Comsol acoustic modeling.  The DPC array is the result of 18 months of painstaking simulations.  We just love it and think you will, too.

Beryllium, covering the widest bandwidth up to ultrasonic frequencies, our finest 28mm Beryllium dome takes center stage. Beryllium is one of the strongest materials known to man and does not suffer from the typical harsh break-up modes of other metals due to its outstanding damping characteristics.  Accurate, undistorted, and revealing.

  • TPCD Carbon Fiber – The Beryllium tweeter is flanked by our dual 28mm TPCD ultra-lightweight Carbon fiber midrange domes.  Allowing the crossover point to extend more than an octave lower than typical domes,  fast, lightweight and without beaming caused by larger diaphragms.
  • Waveguide lens – all of this technology wouldn’t be worth it without the waveguide orchestrating the directional characteristics of the array.   Presenting a coherent wavefront, while optimizing early reflections and sound power, to bring vocal reproduction to an altogether new level.

 

SUPERIOR QUALITY
It takes more than just world-class materials to make world-class sound. It takes quality that lets you know that your speakers will never fail you in the middle of a dynamic crescendo or when experiencing the delicate subtlety of a triangle in your favorite orchestra. We demand this from our products, so you don’t have to.

Why buy from us?

Rapallo is an independently owned New Zealand company and with more than 15 years experience, we offer you both technical expertise and superior service.

Rapallo is fully authorized to sell products by all of the manufacturers listed on our website and in our store. In most cases we are more than a reseller, we are a direct dealer who also receives training and where possible we personally test products we sell.

 

Authorized dealers like us offer peace of mind. Rapallo

  • meets manufacturer’s standards, from sales to service, in order to receive authorized status.
  • often receives training directly from manufacturer representatives and shares that expertise with you.
  • provides  support for all the products they sell.
  • ensures that manufacturer warranties will be honoured.
  • buys directly from big brand manufacturers and guarantee you buy NZ new, (no grey imports or parallel imports).

The Internet is an incredibly convenient information source and a wonderful way to find savings on the products you want. Protect yourself online by buying from authorized dealers, with genuine feedback and reputations.

 

A price too good to be true, usually is.
If you’ve ever searched for a product on a shopping engine (such as Priceme/Pricespy) you may have asked yourself, “Why are some stores charging so much less than other stores?”

Our customers often share these stories with us, so we thought we would share a few with you, in hopes that you don’t fall prey to any of these unscrupulous sales tactics.

  • Goods may be grey market/parallel imported. They may state that the product includes the manufacturer warranty, but not tell you that the warranty is valid only in Europe, Japan, or South America, and NOT in NZ.
  • You may be asked to buy an expensive extended warranty. In many cases if you do not purchase the warranty, your purchase will be denied. (The product is now out of stock, your card does not go through, etc.)
  • Included parts may be sold to you separately. Some resellers will open boxes and charge extra for parts that are normally included by the manufacturer.
  • Hidden charges which don’t show up until your credit card statement arrives, these charges only show up when your credit card statement is sent to you.
  • When something goes wrong, faulty, late delivery, doesn’t matter how many times you try to email, they don’t get back.
  • There are so many scamming online sellers today, “buyer beware” protect yourself!

 

Think you have a better price from someone in NZ (authorised dealer)? Call us, we’ll see what we can do.

 

Concerned About Fraud?
The internet has become a more popular source for online shopping, regrettably we have seen more and more instances of fraud affecting online shoppers. Companies trading under many  different names, loading warranties and charging for them as extras when often they are included from the manufacturer. Parallel imports or personal imports where the NZ supplier refuses to repair when things go wrong is often alarming to the unsuspecting purchaser. Inflated freight charges, customs and GST at the border are often forgotten as a buyer is tempted by a lower price. Constantly we hear all these stories, once bitten it’s all to late looking for that refund or replacement. The stories are outrageous at times, customers from Trademe and ebay with no place to turn, time consuming and very frustrating…

 

So how do you protect yourself from online fraud?

  • Buy from an authorized reseller. If you are at all suspicious, contact the manufacturer directly and ask if a company is authorized to sell their products.
  • Make sure you get a company invoice with GST clearly marked.
  • Make sure you buy from someone who has a phone number and an address on their website, not a P.O.Box number
  • Read customer feedback, you can usually tell if it’s genuine or not.

We hope that you will become our next happy customer. And we promise to offer you superior service before, during and after your purchase.
