Due to moving to bit larger space I sold my BX2.

RX2 were the obvious and only choice according to my taste. Now, two weeks later, I can only say - excellent choice and great value!

Info on amp - it makes exceptional match with my Exposure 2010S2.

These beautiful white gloss standmount speakers not only look fantastic but after 100 hours are sounding better and better it seems every time i play my favourite cds i am hearing more than the previous time. The bass did take a while to loosen up and positioning from the wall is important but once you get it right it is perfectly balanced and very tight and articulate without being overblown. I love the midrange and bass a bit more than the highs but they are just great overall very happy indeed!! Thanks to the engineers at Monitor Audio everyone has the opportunity to afford a fantastic looking and sounding loudspeaker that is not silly money! well done

I have a pair of RX2's hooked up to a Harman Kardon HK990 stereo amplifier and I am very pleased with the overall sound. These are full-bodied speakers capable of reproducing anything thrown at them with excellent clarity in the low, mid and high frequencies. Highly recommended.

I have been using the Monitor Audio RX2 speakers as part of a home theatre system for the last 6 months. I had previously been using the RX1's but found them lacking, so upgraded to the RX2'S which in my opinion is the best speakers in the RX range. I have a Yamaha RX-V3800 receiver that I know is a superb piece of equipment. My digital source is a Creek evolution CD player and my analogue source is a Project 2 Xperience Turntable with Grado Platinum Cartridge. I always still felt that something was lacking from the speakers. I contacted my dealer FUSE STEREO IN TEL AVIV and told him that I was thinking of changing my speakers to something like the JM Lab Focal Diablo's. He was quite willing to indulge my fantasies. He informed me though that if I was going to upgrade speakers to the Diablo's I would also have to upgrade my Amplifier accordingly. We agreed that I would come and see him on Friday (25/11/2011). I took with me my receiver and set out on what was to be an epic and ultimately mind blowing experience. As all who are obsessed with music and sound reproduction I am a member of various Forums. In an forum thread I asked if I would here a discernable difference between the Yamaha RX-V3800 and the Musical Fidelity A5.5 Integrated Amplifier for 2 channel playback. All answers lead to definitely. I went as far as to state that if I could not here a difference it meant one of 2 things, either the Yamaha was superb or my hearing was shot. The testing was done with a Musical Fidelity CD Player, Monitor Audio RX2 speakers which are my main speakers and of course the two Amplifiers. The disks used were 1: Carmina Burana (EMI) 2: The Track Tin Pan Alley, Stevie Ray Vaughn and 3: All for you Dianna Krall. These are disks I am very Familiar with. Tin Pan Alley is a very good track to use as it has good bass, Vocals, Excellent guitar work and a exquisite drum track. I was quite prepared to be critical and dismissive of the A5.5 as I know my Yamaha is a superb receiver but I did not know just how I was going to be proved WRONG. The A5.5 absaloodle ate the Yamaha for breakfast, lunch, dinner and in-between snack. the difference was quite literally night and day, from the bass control and depth to the sweet sweet top end, I was in music heaven. Needless to say I bought it on the spot. Just to clarify listening to the A5.5 brought out sounds I had never before heard on the discs. The Carmina Burana opening track was always harsh and strident through the Yamaha even in the dedicated listening room (I had always attributed this to the speakers) but through the A5.5 it was sweet and smooth. Now onto the RX2,S. I had been advised that with an amp of the quality of the A5.5 I would have to upgrade my speakers. I was already thinking along those lines as there were aspects of my sound reproduction that were not quite what I wanted. (I have been thinking of the Utopia Diablo's for a while but they are too rich for me.) As I sat there listening to the difference between the Yamaha and A5.5 I saw $,s with wings before my eyes but I resigned myself to the fact that I would be going home today with a new Amplifier and speakers. With the A5.5 hooked up to the CD player I began the listening session the same disks used to test the Amplifiers were used to test the speakers. First Listened to were the JM Lab Focal 807V Double the price of the RX2 Second the Proac D2 Nearly 5 times the price of the RX2 Third and Last JM Lab Focal 826W-30 Nearly 6 times the price of the RX2 I didn't want to spend so much but was prepared to if the difference was so significant. Well the difference was night and day. Believe it or not the RX2'S destroyed the other speakers ALL OF THEM. I was walking around in a state of shock unable to believe what I was hearing as speaker after speaker was eaten by the RX2. Not sure if was hearing things or if I had gone totally insane or deaf or both I asked Nissan (Proprietor of Fuse Stereo) if he was hearing what I was, it appears he was . Now I am not naive enough to believe that the RX2,s are the last word in loudspeakers but they are a damn fine speaker worth a darn sight more than the measly $1000 they cost, and as far as value for money goes probably very hard to beat. The A5.5 has brought out of the RX2's what I didn't think possible. To improve I will have to spend a huge amount of money

I have never owned such a fantastic pair of speakers. The sound is so loud, detailed and realistic that you think you are in front of the musicians. Thanks to the people at Monitor Audio.
