which would you choose for front speakers?
No xperience with the Monitor Audios but having listened to some AE300 and AE300C they sure sound a lot bigger than they look and were real impressive if a little bit in your face at the top but this I am sure is a set up issue. They have a lot more bass capability than I expected given that they are only good down to 40Hz but they impressed me and sounded better than some floor standers I have heard.
I was checking out some Aegis EVO 3 floor standers to - these are well worth a look also for fronts but I think you will need a big room for EVO 3's they just overwhelmed the demo room.
Checked using a Dolby 5.1 Audio CD (Blue Man Group, Audio) and my all time fave movies for sound effects Star Trek First Contact (yes I know in space you can't hear anything - leave my illusions alone ) and also Gladiator.
I am checking out amps to and the speakers were connected to a Yamaha RX-V2400.
The silver series is being replaced by the silver RS so you can pick up some bargains. I just got some Silver S1s and a Silver SLCR for 1/2 price and am rather happy with it. Might be worth considering the next series up from the bronze ....
