Listened to some Monitor Audio mains today. RX1's and A10's. RX1's were nice, but not ideal - rear ported and a bit too pricey. The shop didn't have any BX1's in stock to listen to.
The A10's were absolutely within my budget but they just don't have the oomf; albeit they might make for pretty nice surrounds later down the road. If I went with the A10's I would have to pick up a sub as well - which is a pretty good possibility because I'm sure I would be happy with the sound in my condo.
