Picked up my First pair Of Monitor Audio Monitor ONE's 2 days ago for 70 bucks not knowing really what to expect.

 

They are my first listen to Monitor and im finding myself continually drawn back to the room for a listen, VERY impressive defiantly a fan!!!

 

Even the wife came in for a listen and rates them.

I would only ever consider getting rid of my Silver 8s for something further up the MA tree. Nice to see them set up s well too. 👍

Nah, it's all kosher for me mate and don't worry, I am never precious at all.

 

I actually think your assessment of the 300 is astute.

They actually brought on a headache when I heard them, I blamed everything except the speakers but they lack bass and as a result they sound thin, shrill and cold. Even being objective, the $3K I spent on the 500 sis probably equal to the best buy I have made this decade ( along with my  still-in residence B&W CDM 9NT.

I swap them around periodically and love 'em both.

This is concerning as I really dont want to have to consider, gulp, more "upgrades"......😔

@crisis if you like what you hear, do you need to consider an upgrade, remember there is always something better, i have had my Monitor Audio RS6's for 15yrs so for, and a pair of Bronze BX2's for a couple, no plans to change

Heads up for anyone here considering MA. 

 

Melbourne hifi have a pretty decent sale on Gold 100, 200 and 300's.  And they will audition with hours notice (I rang them).

 

The 300's are down from 10k to just over 6k. They are brand new and they have to order from MA, said 24 hours so in hifi talk maybe 2 weeks?

 

Anyway, still a bargain.

Picked up a set of MA Bronze B2 in mint condition for a second room 2 channel setup. Paired up with a 70’s amp they are delightful. I am scared to drag my Bronze 6 into this setup as they wont go back I am sure.

I've had my eye on the Bronze One or Two's for months now.... just waiting to pull the trigger to replace my older Mission MX-1's. Haven't heard them, but have heard much *about* them.

 

Someone is trying to tempt me away with a pair of Elac Debut B5.2's, and/or the Cambridge Aero 2's as well - so I'm really torn. All of them get great reviews from the UK audio press.....  :frantics:

I'm in a similar situation. I'm sick of the crap audio from my newish bravia so I've done some basic research and without having listened to anything my cross-hairs are now down to two options to experience and compare first. First is Yamaha wxa-50 with either Monitor Audio Bronze 2 or Silver 100. OR a set of KEF LSX. Just need some time to get to a local KEF dealer which is Miles away from me. 

 

For me its as basic as it gets. I need something smallish and its just for sports audio and an occasional bit of music. 

Very appreciative of any other suggestions.

Just started breaking in my first MA speakers (Bronze 2) yesterday and unless I heard wrong the sales guy said to only listen at low-medium volume for 30 hours or something crazy. I’ve never heard of this but just googled it because frankly I wanna pump the music!

 

I didn’t find anything mentioning limiting volume, on the contrary one source said to  play it loud 😁

 

I don’t want it loud usually, but around half power at least. 
 

Anyway, I knew straight away they were pretty good speakers. Better than what I’ve had before. I have a decent Yamaha 5.1 setup, but they’re probably better than them too. Not broken in yet but hearing some nice clarity and resolution. Not as amazing as I was lead to believe, but very good for less than $600 new. And still early days.. surprising for such diminutive things.

Suburb or Town: Kardinya State: Western Australia Payment Method: bank transfer Reason for selling: NLR, upgrade Further information:   https://www.monitoraudio.com/en/product-ranges/radius/radius-270/

      The Radius 270 houses a precision-crafted Radius driver system of twin 100 mm (4") C-CAM mid/bass drivers and a 25 mm (1") C-CAM tweeter.
      Technology
      4" C-CAM bass driver - Radius features bass drivers with concave cone profiles, introduced by our top-of-the-range Platinum speakers and applied subsequently to Gold GX. Extensive research and FEA modelling have allowed us to perfect the relationship between the radiating diaphragm and its motor design, introducing larger motor sizes and voice coils for increased excursion, higher power capability and reduced distortion. C-CAM Gold Dome tweeter - optimised to deliver the finest and widest performance within the compact Radius cabinets. It benefits from a more efficient rear-venting design, releasing air trapped and compressed at the back of the tweeter dome, and guiding it around the drive assembly to a rear-loading chamber. HiVe II port design - Straight from Platinum’s design blueprint, the HiVe reflex port makes its Radius debut. It’s shaped to have the same effect on airflow as a gun-barrel on a bullet. Rifled grooves inside the port help to accelerate the flow and reduce turbulence, so air moves in and out of the port more efficiently, for a faster more dynamic bass response. Single through-bolt driver fixing provides mechanical de-coupling and enhanced mid-band clarity and resolution. The through-bolts also act as rigid cross bracing to give a very solid non-resonant cabinet. Front and rear ported reflex design   Nominal  Impedance 6 ohms Power Handling Single (RMS) 100 watts System Power Handling (RMS) 150 watts Recommended Amplifier Requirements 40-150 watts Maximum SPL (dBA) 107 Bass Alignment Bass reflex - front and rear ported Driver complement 2 x 4” (100mm) C-CAM® cone bass/mid driver

      Item Condition: Very Good Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: Castlecrag (Lower North Shore) State: New South Wales Payment Method: Cash, PayPal Reason for selling: Replaced by new centre Further information:  Selling as moved on from my MA Silver 100's to GX100's, love this centre but needed to go to a ribbon tweeter to match. There are some small scuffs in places where it doesn't matter but looks wise its 8.5/10 and it sounds perfect.
