I know the Golds were just changing from V1 to V2 or GX to Gold as they were dubbed back in November when I was starting to really narrow in on a couple of brands. But I don't know when the new Silver's launched.

How good or bad is the MR10 subwoofer paired with the MR6 setup?

I believe usually 5-6 years between refreshes for MA...

If I recall correctly, Gold Reference released in 2001, Gold Signature in 2006, GX in 2011 and the latest Gold in 2016, so that's 5 yrs in between..

Silver 6 Owners

Hello,

Owners of the Silver 6. Do you notice any issues with the treble/height being that it is a smaller tower? I've read some reviews of smaller towers of different brands where they had to angle the speaker so that the low height didn't cause any issues with listening position. I've not seen anything indicating this with the Silver 6 reviews I've read so I'm assuming it's a moot point? My room is about 14x22. (will use sub for movies).

Unfortunately I have not had a chance to demo the Silver 6. I have listened to the Silver 8. I love the sound of them. However the 4 ohms requirement would mean I'd definitely have to look at a new AVR that is stable with 4 ohms. I've been considering the "possibility" of going to a smaller footprint. For right now I'm still using an 18yr Yamaha 5.1 80 watts. Only doing 3.1.

Coming from Infinity primus 360's, I would think the 6's would be an improvement over the Infinity's even being 2.5 way. If I decide not to do smaller speaker then it's the 8's all the way.

Thanks!
Z

I'm an owner of Silver RS6's , RSLRC. I used the spikes to tilt them back. (back pair full in, front pair turned all the way out) Didn't like it all. They sounded much better to me with the speakers level. My ears are "roughly" 8 to 12 inches higher where I sit and its great. Of course you can try everything when you get them. For me level with very little toe in does the trick.

I had the Silver 8's .....fantastic speaker. Don't let the 4 ohms rating fool you. They are easy to drive, what AVR are you using ?

Taken from Stereophile

"Though the Silver 8's impedance is specified as 4 ohms, its measured impedance magnitude (fig.1, solid trace) remains at or above 5 ohms for the entire audioband other than the region between 100 and 300Hz, where it reaches a minimum value of 3.5 ohms at 165Hz. The electrical phase angle is generally benign, though there is a combination of –34° and 4.5 ohms at 100Hz, a frequency where music can have high energy. A 4 ohm–rated amplifier or receiver will have no problems driving this speaker to high levels."
