The first fruit of the reborn RSL was the CG4 system reviewed in the September 2011 issue of Sound & Vision, followed by the smaller and very affordable CG3 system, which was reviewed in March 2017.

The CG5 series consists of just two models. There’s the CG5 ($400 each) itself, a stout two-way bookshelf with a 5.25-inch aramid fiber cone woofer and 1-inch silk dome tweeter, and the CG25 ($500 each), a model with a slighter longer cabinet to accommodate a second 5.25-inch woofer. The CG25’s design allows for it to be used either in a vertical orientation in a normal stereo setup or flipped on its side to serve as a low-profile center speaker
