Size Matters

" Crisp, clean, expansive and atmospheric sound that's detailed...powerful, articulate bass - superb high frequencies...the Monitor Audio RS8's have outstanding instrumental separation, excellent phrasing and also a powerful dynamic ability'

Silver RS - RS8 - Review

“This is a loudspeaker with real balls, which consistently goes louder, deeper and fuller than you would reasonably credit from a box this size...on the plus side and it’s a very big plus indeed, the Silver RS8 has excellent timing. It simultaneously sounds measured and propulsive, with wonderfully ‘on the balls of the feet’ timing....This is a clean, agile and dynamic speaker...it conveys enthusiasm and drive.”

These are the best mid-price speakers around a grand that I have heard, I previously owned a pair of Tannoy Eyris DC3 £1500 until my son popped both tweeters in, but these are a slight improvement at half the cost, add in kid friendly (nothing on show for them to destroy under the solid covers). Musically they rival speakers costing £1500-2000 they offer everything with nothing spared, go very loud and play chest thumping bass lines thats fast and acurate, but also good enough to sing delicately, sound well defined, very sweet and controlled, hollographic in fact, better 3d imagery than the Eyris which had a standard & super tweeter, the professional reviews lead me to buy these & I am bowled over, add in a exquisite finish, wife friendly good looking furniture and they delivery the full monty and some, I won't be changing these for a very long time. Thank you MA
