Re: Monitor Audio RS1

I'm assuming we are gonna get more with all these parking spaces being reserved... which of course will be very welcomed. Those are some awesome looking speakers. I was looking at a pair of used RS6's over at Audiogon the other night. Very reasonably priced, but I they were not black, which is what I would want. They are a tad out of my price range for new, time I add the center and surrounds. Either way, I hope to get to hear some one day.

Re: Monitor Audio RS1

yes, hopefully ... I'll have time tonight to A/B them. still trying to decide if I should A/B them with the Polks (ones I used as reference for the BR series)

or if I should A/B them with my new pair of speakers (KEF Q1)



My initial aesthetic impressions:

Very very nice. I'm very tempted to buy a pair right now. (and that's considering I just bought some other pair this same day)

The build quality is leaps and bounds better than the BR series, much more solid, very heavy, smooth corners and it really looks like an expensive piece of gear.

The walnut color on this one is much much better than the BR (if you like darker), maybe it's because of the wood veneer.

The 1st, 2nd, and last photos are definitely Rosenut. However, the rest looks like Walnut, it's probably the lighting.

Re: Monitor Audio RS1

Are these actually two difference sets of speakers?

Re: Monitor Audio RS1

They are the same, basing on the serial number. However, the lighting conditions make the color look different in the photos.

I've owned these babies for a year, before upgrading to the RS6. I wouldn't have let go of these, but out of curiosity, I just had to try the floorstanders (which I think I'll be keeping for a very long time).
