Im about to replace my Polks RTiA7; they sound very good; but I believe this is a nice step up.
Silver 8 cost $2000 a pair and Gold GX100 about $2200.
There is no showroom to hear this where I live. I was able to hear 2ch the Silver 8 and was very good.
But also I was able to hear Defintive Technology Studio Monitor 55; and If I compare that with my Polks Oh wow.. very amazing.
So; thats the deal; or get Silver 8 floorstands vs a high end Bookshelf?
I love music and movies as well; I can say 50/50. The bass on the Silver 8 was amazing vs the Silver 6 in which I was able to demo too. Sadly only 2ch music. No movies; there was no bluray player on the store!
I consider Silver 8 has better mids than Silver 6 and of course you can notice the difference at the bass....
My other contender is the B&W 683 Series 2 with the HTM61 S2 Center!.. I have to say its to sad the Silver Center is only 2-way vs B&W in which is 3 way for same price!.... Third contender KEF Q700 with Q600 Center!
HElp here please
