I have a pair of the Monitor Audio Silver 6's, also paired with a Silver Center. I originally got the MA Bronze BX2 and Center and paired it with a Polk PSW110 sub, not the greatest sub but it sounded OK . After a few days of listening, I wanted "more". I went back and auditioned to the Silver 6's and fell in love. Just what I wanted. Took back everything and got the Silver 6's, kept the Bronze center, but since I like smilar things and tibre matching is always good, I got the Silver Center too.
I run them in a 3,0 setup, Silver 6's L and R and a Silver center. Bass is fantastic for not having a sub. I listen to everything. From Disturbed, to Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Iron Maiden and Metallica to Tiesto. Never once felt I was lacking in any sound department on these albums. I am no audiophile, but appreciate good sound and condier my self an enthusiast. Everything is run off a Marantz SR6009.
I did think about going to the Silver 8, half for looking bigger and cooler, and half for sound, but after thinking about it and $ for $ I would be better off at getting a sub and sorting out my X overs. Some people have said the 6's to a 8's is a HUGE jump. For me I can't make that call, I've never head the 8's. I think I'll get a HSU sub and then decide down the road if I want to get the 8s
BlueRay movies are fantastic. Watching 007 Skyfall last night, I did see parts where a sub would of been better, but I've deicded to let my crappy Polk PSW110 stay in the garage and let these speakers do there wonders. I have the LR set as Large and the center as Small. Auddessy did a good job of setting them up. I cant wait to get a sub and see what it can do then, taking some load off the 6's.
For your $750 a pair, that seems like I great price. I paid $1400 ish up in Canada on sale brand new. Are you sure they are the Silver line, not the RS or RX?
Here is a pic of my setup, everyone likes pictures.
