    I like the look as well, but would prefer a different cabinet colour.

    Monitor Audio Speakers are insane for the Price! Fabulous speaker line. I went down to my local high end electronics store just last week end, they were one of the speakers listened to. I hate to say it but, they put my new Polks to shame. I compared the monitor audio speakers to a $6000 B&W set and the difference in SQ was there, but not by much. The MA stuff has great mid range, nice laid back highs and tight clean bass. All gear was powered by Rotel 200wpc. I would be very surprised if you were not happy with that product.

    If I had the cash. There would be no question, this speaker line would be my number 1 choice. I have never heard such rich sound quality in that price range. All the guys in the store said the same. In fact the owner is a good friend of my dads and he bought them for his own house and this is a guy that has been in the HI FY music business for 30 years. This is the speaker line I demoed:
    RS6, RSLCR, RSFX and RSW-12
    http://www.monitoraudiousa.com/range.php?range=2

    Two channel RS6 is nuts! That's all I can say.

    And this is a line a step down from the line your looking at. Not sure if they had that line in yet but if they do get them in. I'll find out and go demo them for you. I'll give you a more detailed review than the RS line.
