I had some Silver series a few years ago but no Gold. I'd also like to hear your thoughts on them.

I have the Gold 300GX and center. They sound amazing. Although I am a dealer of their products I did audition several companies before I decided what I wanted to Cary in my shop. I also deal with BG Radia which is a different sound altogether. To get back to your question I have listened o music and movies. Listened to the on solid state and tube amps. In my opinion they sound the best or music though a tube amp and pre-amp. They I'd not disappoint in a theater set-up either. I choose Monitor Audio because of their diverse product line up and I thought they sounded better than other more expensive speakers. I used to work with a Totem dealer and if you took the same piced speakers the Monitors old blow them out of the water. A speaker company I would compare them o would be Dynaudio.
Great speaker in sound and build quality.

Sorry went on a rant. I have my GX300's roughly 12' apart with the center in the middle. My GXFX are on the sides of the listening position 6.5 ft high. Same with the rears on a 16' wall they are off each side wall 4' and 5' above the riser. Let me know if I can help any further.

Monitor Audio is awesome! I have their GS10 (left and right side speakers), and their GS20s for the upfront stand speakers in my movie theater bedroom.

The only problem is that for their center channel I have (GS-LCR), the middle tweeter blew out, but it was a free replacement.

Overall I am very happy with these speakers, and the blow out was caused because it was literately turned up WAYYY to loud and for long periods of time.
