Leaning toward the GX50 or GX100 because of price at the moment, but wondering about the pl100.
I love my PL100 speakers!

I heard from a dealer that the GX series is probably going to get an update fairly soon, anyone know if there is any truth to that?

Looking for a little help, I have 2 FB212 subs and i'm looking to change the out spike and was hoping that some one could tell me what the thread size is on the spikes.

Thanks

Hi everyone,

Considering an upward firing pair of KEF R50 for Atmos enabling my setup. I would then place those on top of my PL300. Any thoughts on that?

Thanks

Silver 8s Reviewed in January Issue of Stereophile.

Nice review of the MA Silver 8s in the newest issue of Stereophile. The article begins on page 105. Absolute Sound published a review of the Silver 10s in their most recent issue for those interested reading that.

@Mepstein10

I've been waiting to hear that for a long time, I hope it's true.

The benefit of this is that you can grab the various speakers as you have the money without the fear of them being discontinued b3fore you complete the lot.

That is about the most glowing review a manufacturer could ask for. A ringing endorsement if ever there was one.

What Monitor Audio speakers are people using for Atmos (if anyone is actually running Atmos yet)?

I have a Yamaha 3040 and aiming for a 5.1.4 setup. I'm running (or I soon will be) 3 x Apex A40's across the front, Monitor Audio RXFX as side surrounds and a pair of Apex A10's as "rear presence" which are essentially the two back Atmos speakers. I'm looking for two front overheads.

Monitor Audio themselves recommend any of the CT-IDC range which limits me to the CT265-IDC, CT280-IDC or the CT380-IDC. The 265 is the most appealing as it's the cheapest but not sure do I need the [expense of the] IDC pivoting tweeter.

Is anyone using any of their cheaper ceiling speakers? I'm not even sure which of the trimless range is timbre matched to the Apex's.

Related to my question just four posts above--I was asking about KEF R50 as an upward firing option. Anyone has any opinion on those?

Every time I see a review on the 8's or 10's I want to upgrade my 6's... but then I think that $ for $ getting a sub to compliment my Silver 3.0 setup would be best.... they do look beastly tho.

Great review.

Yeah, you'd definitely see a bigger difference by adding the sub. Seeing any that you're considering?

Even with the silver 10's, I still keep getting the urge to add a big sub or 2.

You wouldn't regret it. My rx8s are great solo, but even better with a sub. Even better since building the second sub. Subs just handle the low stuff with more authority, especially when really cranked. Of course, it depends on the music and volumes you listen to as well.

It was my plan to build a couple of subs a while back but other priorities keep popping up

I have impatiently been waiting to get started. Very jealous of all these great builds you guys are posting.

I hear ya. When ordering stuff for my build, I bought two of everything because I knew I'd eventually build a second to match. I basically have everything but the wood and time. I'll be finishing school and having my first kid about the same time so no telling when it will actually come to fruition.
