Surround speaker choices for Monitor Audio GX range
I've discussed my plan to upgrade from my current RS setup to GX elsewhere but I'm still stuck on surround options. I'm going GX300 / GXC-350 / GXW15 at the front.
With my room, I can hang side surrounds (as my RSFX now) but if I have rear surrounds they need to go on bookshelves so the GXFX are out.
MA have recommended I go with RXFX (in bipole mode) & RX1 at the back rather than GXFX /GX50 as apparently the GXFX (dipole only) would be out of phase with GX50 on the rear for example. I wonder if I'm better restricting to a 5.1 setup with the GXFX.
I guess this leaves me with 4 options and I'd love everyones opinions:
1) GXFX x 1 pair (5.1 setup only)
2) RXFX / RX1 (7.1)
3) Keep RSFX / old Denon bookshelves I already have
4) ignore MA's advice & go GXFX / GX50 - which comprises an old-skool, by the book THX setup anyway…
Anyone had experience pairing GXFX (or other dipole surrounds) with monopole (direct radiating) rears?
