"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"

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.”

After previously owning a pair of MA BX5s and being absolutely 100% satisfied, I decided to upgrade to the Silver RX6 front speakers. Firstly the build quality is exceptional, wood finishes to die for. The amount of comments visitors give me is amazing. Then comes the Sound stage...WOW! Deep bass, and I mean Deep, demoing "Bass I Love You" through my Onkyo 609 is awesome. Yes of course you need a Sub, but to the none techy out there, trust me you wouldn't know any different. I am so happy yet again with "Monitor Audio" and I urge anyone serious about home audio to bag a pair of "Monitor Audio Silver RX6s" NOW!!!

I've had my RX6's for a couple of years now and I am still impressed every time I put some audio through my system. The RX8's were streets ahead of anything else I auditioned at the time, beautifully precise and, seemingly, not concerned with trying to be 'impressive'. My flat being small, I went with the smaller model with no regrets. One day when I change speakers, my first question will be, 'What does Monitor Audio have to sell?'

These RX6 speakers are absolutely (absolutely) stunning. I feel I've just woken up from years of sleep-listening. Been rediscovering many songs in an unbelievable fashion. It's hard to describe but the music seems to be coming from outside the speakers. An out of body experience that took me back to the sheer magic of the day I first plugged in my dad's old HIFI.
For all these memories (and future ones), thank YOU, Monitor Audio!

I bought these speakers for my stereo music listening after auditioning 10+ floor-standers. Some speakers were good at one thing, others were good at something else. These are the only speakers I found in this range that were good for almost every genre of music is listen to. I listen to wide genres of music and I feel these speakers are made just for me. But don't get these speakers wrong, they are great for movie as well.

These speakers are just superb. When used with music or film, they simply excel. With a Clear and crisp top end, focused mid range and controlled/tight bass - they are a very well balanced speaker.

As they are a relatively neutral speaker, they allow the recording and HiFi/AV equipment to display their characteristics very well.

On a different note, I had to contact Monitor Audio customer services a few months ago and I must say that the response was nothing short of brilliant. Communication over the phone and through e-mail was outstanding and the outcome as promised.

A brilliant speaker package, supported by highly impressive after sales support make buying Monitor Audio a very easy decision indeed.

I've owned these speakers for 10 months now, and in a lifetime of never being quite satisfied with my speakers, these RX6's have finally solved the problem. I've owned KEF, Tannoy, Mission, B&W and others. But The RX6's have been a revelation, at last I have a speaker which gives me everything that I want to hear. A clear and crisp top end, a rich, full mid-range and deep bass. But very well balanced with greta sound-stage, and sounds good with all sorts of music. The rich vocal timbre of June Tabor, the lighter voice of Kate Rusby. Grizzly Bear, Explosions in the Sky, Mark Elder's Elgar, Pappano's Puccini, Ibragimova's Bach and all of my Mahler and Bruckner. I'm occasionally surprised when the speakers reveal something that I haven't noticed in a recording before. Apart from that, they look really good. I use mine in a relatively modest sized room, about 4.5m x 4m, with 2.5m headroom and sloping ceilings from half way up the wall. I was concerned that the speakers may be too big for the space, but was re-assured that this would not be an issue - thanks John (Sevenoaks - Sheffield). I match them with an old Marantz 7200amp, and a 6002 CD player, not supreme hi-fi, but sure sounds good to me!

Since my teenager days I was hooked to loudspeakers from T+A and I thought I might never find a match to them. Then I was introduced to the RX6 and bought then as soon as I saved the money. Thank you - they are the best listening experience I ever had.

i just finished a complete system. Monitor Audio Rx6, Bronze Center Channel, Bronze B-1 rear speakers, with a Velodyne mini sub and a Polk audio remote rear channel. all matched to a Pioneer VSX 40 amp. I am extremely impressed with Monitor Audio quality and perfection I am hearing more complete sounds that I have been missing ...wow.

Both the RX6 and the RX8 sounded great at the store and I have to decide which to buy. They sound much better to me than the B&W CM series, which seems cold and sterile to me. However, I'm not happy with the color contrast of the white driver cones against all the different finishes. It creates a goofy look that challenges the discerning decorator who has to deal with the silly looking circles in the middle of the speakers. For the black speakers I would have preferred all black and for the white, solid black circles, not black outlines with white inside. This may seemed boring to some people, but from a decorating standpoint, would have made more sense. And it would have looked a lot classier too.

Aboslutely fantastic!
I've always had very expensive speakers, such as Dynaudio Contour 2 or Celestion Ditton 88, and recently a pair of Focal 836V, but my first Audio Monitor (the Silver RX6), are better than all. So I decided to try the RX8, and if they surprise even me, I will go up a level in Monitor Audio's catalogue.
I found the company that makes speakers for me.
Well done! Congratulations!

Great speakers for the money! Excellent detailed clear sound. Takes a couple of months to fully break in. Next time I would consider the Monitor Audio RX2 as well. I use my pair of RX6 with a Pioneer 1120K receiver (USA model) and a Rythmik Audio F12 direct servo sealed subwoofer (the combination sounds great)

These speakers are incredible creations. Their combination of neutrality, sound staging, imaging, and overall lack of distortion is amazing considering that they are very affordable. I find my natural oak pair very attractive too, as does my family. Kudos to Monitor Audio!!
