    Hi :hiya:

    I've read a few favourable reviews for these speakers, and now I am in the position of buying a pair. They are second-hand, but in good condition.

    Would they work well with the monitor audio bronze b2's as rears? And what sort of price does anyone think I should pay for them, bearing in mind they are second hand?

    Has anyone here got them, and what do they really think of them?

    thanks!

    :D

    new they are £450, listened to them today run in fully for first time. Excellent speakers, I would pay £300 - £350 max if they are A1.

    second that,

    fully run in they are just great.

    I haven't seen any reviews od these yet, can you point me in the direction of the ones you have read? I my experience the S6 and 8 seem to be reviewed quite a bit but never seen one on the 5!

    I think I had my wires slightly crossed.

    These are the "old" Silver series, and the S5 from the old series are only 100W :(

    I think i'm going to pass on them as my Bronze B2's are 100W so the Silvers won't make much difference to them being the fronts.
