I auditioned Monitor Audio RX8s with an Arcam A19. Wasn't sure what to expect. The sound was balanced and the bass was fast and tight. Midrange very good, Top balanced and not too bright (unlike the BX5 I heard).
What is was missing is a wider soundstage, more rumble in the bass and not forward enough
I listen to reggae, dance, pop, rock, acoustic music and eletronic, So all sorts of modern stuff with a touch of melodrama!
my room is 5.3 x 4.1m
I will buy MA RX8s or KEF R500 or R700.
The amplifier will be Roksan Kandy K2 or Roksan Caspian M2. Don;t ask why but these are the options.
I want to ensure I am buying the best possible speaker technically and that the amplifier will resolve enough detail and drive the speakers easily with control on the bass factor. I listen to low to moderate volumes so i am not after absolute power or need the speak to sound good at crazy volumes. What I want is details, rhythm and bass.
Thank you. PLease help as stock is literally running out!!!
