Right now I have the R30s as mains with the CSi25 center. I got them years ago for a ridiculous deal ($88 for the pair of R30s and $75 for the CSi25).


I just ordered a CS2 center, which is supposedly significantly better than the CSi25. It seems close enough to the R30s that timbre won't really be an issue. I have the bug, though, and I'm wondering if the Monitor 40 (which matches the CS2) would be noticeably better than the R30.


Has anyone compared the R-series to the Monitor series?

If you get Monitor 40's that means you'll need stands. Why not just get the Monitor 50's for slightly more.


Monitor 40s, $119/pr

Monitor 50's, $79ea or $159/pr

Cause they don't have the 50 in black

That is a good deal, but I'm digging the CS2. It's noticeably better than my CSi25, surprisingly. Making me think the Monitor 40 or 50 will be similarly superior to the R30.
