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.

      Item: 1 x Silver Centre, 2 x Silver 6 Floor standing speakers (L&R), 2 x Silver FX Surrounds (complete 5.0 system)
      Location: Wollongong
      Price: $2000 including donation to stereonet
      Item Condition: Excellent, pristine
      Reason for selling: Moved House decided to sell as complete package.
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: This is an entire 5.0 speaker system at an excellent price. It includes the following:  silver 6 L/R floor standing speakers, Silver Centre and Silver FX Surrounds. This is the 5th generation silver series (i.e. the previous model to the current silver series). They are in a luxurious gloss black. They were purchased in 2016 and are in pristine condition (inspection welcome)- they have the balance of the 5 year warranty and I have all receipts. They are great sounding speakers for both music and movies. They have never even been misused or pushed hard. These speakers cost me around $5000 new. They are all tonally matched with matching 6 inch bass drivers and gold c cam tweeters. I am only selling because we have bought a new house and I made a deal with my wife. I would give up the 5.1 setup to fit better in the new house but I was allowed to get an upgraded 3.1 setup. Pickup will be from my address near Wollongong. I am happy to deliver for free though in the greater Sydney or even Canberra area just ask me and we can work something out.
       
      Buyer will not be disappointed! Happy to take further photos or accommodate an inspection.
