Selling my beloved Monitor Audio Gold GS10 in walnut finish..detail is in the for sale -> audio gear section..

I recently moved to a new house and while the new family room is much better for the front LCR and subwoofer placement, the room layout does now allow me to get enough clearance between GS10 used as surround and side walls..

I was fortunately enough to find a brand new pair of the GSFX in walnut finish at great price from Saturday Audio and it is with sad heart that I am selling my GS10
(wife demanded it after asking what the charge was on our credit card statement...)

I am located in SF Bay Area and would prefer local pickup..

Have any of you guys hear Monitor Silver 8's vs KEF R500's? What is the sound difference? The cabinets looks very similar..

What makes the Kef's more expensive? Some people don't know what tight clean bass is.

The 8 inch bass driver silver 8s retail around 2k a pair and can be had for a bit less at audioadvisor. The r series tower with 8 inch drivers is 5k and hard to find cheaper than that. The r500s got for about 2,500 andis a smaller sspeaker than the silver 8

Yes,they both have 6'5" drivers. So the question was.. What makes the Kef's more expensive? Both speakers look so similar,why would Kef be so much more?

I'd say the R series is more in line with the monitor golds. The silvers seem to fall between the kef Q and R. I heard the R700 a few years ago and liked them. Didn't do a head to head with the rx8, but the rx8 had better bass, not as bright as the paradigm studios, and the UniQ driver puts out a huge sweet spot that really impressed me.
