Silver Rx - RX6 - Review

Surround set-ups that put you in the heart of the action.

"The soundstage is generous, integration between all five speakers and the subwoofer is spot on, and there's ample drama and excitement on tap without any accompanying hardness or lack of composure."

Silver Rx - RX6 - Review

"I could make out the subtlest sounds in every scene, from the faint creaking and rustling of falling debris as the Sistine Chapel caves in, to the gentle background chatter inside important-looking command centres. If the devil is in the detail, then this system is Satan himself."

Gold award for RX6

"Its finish is impressive and appealing"

"...without any artificial stress in the upper register."

"The sound image is in relief and pleasant, the spectral balance perfectly mastered from tonic bass to rich treble, the medium open and remarkably articulate. Stereo Image is of high quality and sometimes holographic"

"The dynamic is mastered without sacrificing subtlety in the translation of the phrasing. They provide class sound and music."

Sound+Vision RX6 System Review

“A do-it-all system that has the looks and the power...”

“The percussion stood out from the group’s sonic fracas as if I were hearing the music performed live in a small club.”

“At the other end of the sonic spectrum, the RX6 staggered me with its deep, dynamic bass… For a small speaker with two 6-inch woofers, the RX6’s performance is astounding.”

“The RXFX surround speakers’ timbre matching was superb — as objects flew past me during the movie’s driving scenes, the sound effects were remarkably consistent as they shifted from the front speakers to the surrounds. This characteristic helped the system produce an enveloping effect that drew me into whatever I was watching.”

“I’m surprised at the raw power of Monitor Audio’s Silver RX speakers. I’m delighted at their vivid sonic imaging. And I’m charmed by their gorgeous
looks — with or without the grilles attached. If you’re seeking a compact, do-it-all system, I doubt you can do much better than this one.”

Silver RX6 Stereophile Review

“The Monitor’s midrange neutrality and rendering of detail, ambience, and holographic imaging made me mine my collection for vocal recordings… I never tire of Norah Jones singing “Don’t Know Why,” and through the Silver RX6s her perfectly silky, low level

vocal articulations were bathed in a rounded golden glow.”

“Lower in frequency, the Monitor was equally revealing and complimentary to well recorded male voices…”

“Through the Silver RX6s there was a real sense of instruments popping out of nowhere to rest on a bed of air in a deep, wide concert hall.”

“The Monitor’s extended, pristine high frequencies were showcased by another De Leeuw/Schönberg recording, of György Ligeti’s Cello Concerto…”

“The RX6’s high-frequency purity nicely dovetailed with its perfect rendition of crisp, clean, fast transients on recordings with percussive content.”

“The Silver RX6’s reproduction of bass was also superb. Dave Holland’s double-bass intro to Kevin Eubanks’s “Nemesis,” from Holland’s Extensions (CD, ECM 1410), was warm and three-dimensional throughout the instrument’s entire range.”

“The Silver RX6 was also a party speaker that could handle loud rock.”

“The Monitor was also a great home-theater speaker.”

"...the Silver RX6, excelled in every parameter by today’s standards, demonstrating a broad range of strengths and no weaknesses… It was an ideal match for every type of music, from delicate female voices and jazz trios to bombastic orchestral and electronic rock music. And its small footprint, attractive but unassuming appearance, and clean, extended bass performance make it an ideal home-theater speaker: one that obviates the need for a subwoofer. I can’t think of another affordable speaker that better meets such a broad range of needs.”

RX6 Review by Stereophile

US based Hi-Fi magazine Stereophile offers authoritative reviews, informed recommendations, helpful advice, and controversial opinions across the publication so when the Silver RX6s came up for review we were ready and pleasantly pleased with the results. Read the detailed review in the current June 2012 issue. Here's a few snippets:

“Through the Silver RX6s there was a real sense of instruments popping out of nowhere to rest on a bed of air in a deep, wide concert hall.”

“The Monitor’s high-frequency reproduction enabled perfect integration of the fundamentals and harmonics of the trumpet; Wynton Marsalis’s instrument on his Levee Low Moan (CD, Columbia CK 47075) was startlingly realistic: The Monitor’s integration of the horn’s dynamic envelope, timbre, and harmonics inspired me to scribble in my notes: “That’s a trumpet!”

“The RX6’s high-frequency purity nicely dovetailed with its perfect rendition of crisp, clean, fast transients on recordings with percussive content.”

"It was an ideal match for every type of music, from delicate female voices and jazz trios to bombastic orchestral and electronic rock music. And its small footprint, attractive but unassuming appearance, and clean, extended bass performance make it an ideal home-theater speaker: one that obviates the need for a subwoofer."

"I can’t think of another affordable speaker that better meets such a broad range of needs.”
