    Well from what was on display at the show this weekend, that pretty much sums it up. Not quite sure if I like the fact that the nice wood veneer on the S series is being dropped in favour of the plastic finish as used on the radius. There was something classy about a real wood finish, perhaps they could hav emade special finish an option like they do on the Golds? The sound from the RS8's was certainly consistant with the S8's, perhaps a little warmer, but without comparing them side by side I wouldn't like to say for sure.
    I still prefer my Gold 20's, so if anybody was unsure as to whether the new RS's would match the old GR's, rest assured, the GR's are still a better sounding speaker, but at a premium. Pitching these at the same prices as the old S series will make these a good buy. But if you want a real wood finish, best grab yourself a set of S's or start saving for GR's.
