Re: Monitor Audio RS1

I would have taken them off the table to compare; those surface reflections would have bugged me to no end. What was your source material? With most radio-ish stuff, you won't hear any difference.

i don't have space for stands, but even if I did, it wouldn't be accurate for me to use them since the final placement of whatever bookshelf I use will be on that table.

Re: Monitor Audio RS1

Anyone know what I should be paying for a pr. of MA RS1's? We have no in-state dealers here in WA anymore, apparently, but I know of someone out of state willing to buy and ship me a pr. for $450+shipping. Does this sound like a OK deal? With shipping it's only like 16% off MSRP... but, better than nothing I guess (for new).

I need a pr. in Walnut for my rears (Already have the RS6's and RCLCR).

I'm keeping my eye out for used, but they only come up on occasion.

Re: Monitor Audio RS1

If only I didn't like my RS1's I'd probably sell them (still have all the original packaging). I'm actually no longer using them. They've been decomissioned, due to a relocation of amp equipment, for months now. I don't even know when I'll use them again since my home audio plans have been completely changed!

As for price, I don't even recall how much I paid for them when I bought them.

Those RS1's don't deserve closet treatment, lb..

If you feel like selling 'em, let me know...

That is true...and they are some beautiful speakers. Plus, the new speakers I'm building will hopefully be gloss black (I've never painted before so there's a chance I could fail). Even though these speakers look great, they do kind'a stick out among my current gear.
