Selling RX1 Speakers
English

I am selling my Monitor Audio RX1 speakers having upgraded to floor standing speakers, can anyone suggest where I could sell them other than on that well known auction site.

Nope. Apart from the usual online auction sites you could look at local newspapers or Loot which used to be free.

I forgot to say that I decided on the MA RX6' s in the end for my new floor standers.

Really impressive speaker with the right amp and room acoustics.

Back to the original question, I know WHFI have the concept of a classified section, although couldn't say how far down the line that is...

That would be a great benefit to members, to be able to sell used equipment on the forum.

RE: Selling RX1 Speakers

Yes I agree midrange and scale are impressive, my amp is a Rega Brio R and I use an Audiolab 8200cd as the source.

Yup, MA are amongst some of my fav speakers, although I do prefer the new GX range. Only heard the GX100 connected to a Cyrus 8XP + matching CDP, and the newer versions are more agreeable than ealier Cyrus/MAs.

How do the RX6 differ from the RX1? Assuming, of course, you take the extra scale out of the equation.

I feel the midrange is slightly clearer no doubt because the midrange driver does not have to do all the bass work as per the RX1.
Although it was pretty good on the RX1, high frequencies are about the same and as you say the bass is extended more.

RE: Selling RX1 Speakers

What amp did you have before the Brio? and how does the Brio improve?

Not heard the Brio-R, but does seem to be 'in vogue' at the moment.

I had the Marantz MCR603 all in one, I would say that the Rega gives a fuller more powerful sound , I suppose more dynamic and musical to coin a phrase. I actually kept the Marantz as a tuner and back up CD and amp. I feel there is a little more detail with the Rega too.

One other thing with the Brio R is that although it is only supposed to be 50 watts per channel it seems more powerful than that.

RE: Selling RX1 Speakers

Other than eBay there aren't that many options. I think the "other" place has a classifieds section.
