Monitor Audio RS6 Av12

Hi there,

I'm going to be testing some Monitor Audio RS6 Av12's this week they are brand new and the seller is doing me a deal which is around £1200 for the lot.

Is this a good price?

Is there much difference between the RS6's and the RX6's?

I will be testing both but for over a thousand pounds cheaper is there going to be that much of a noticeable difference.

any input would be great.

Thanks

The RX is supposed to be smoother sounding and an improvement over the RS. However at almost half price I doubt the RX are going to be worth the extra. I would get the RS speakers for that price and I am sure you will not be dissappointed. The only thing to bear in mind is that the RS range needed good amplification to work well, what reciever do you have or plan to get?

I'm getting the Yamaha RX-V1067 for it, would you rate this amp? from everything i've read its meant to be very good.

yeah thats what i was thinking. I'm upgrading from some Kef Q55's so i hope i'll notice the difference.

Thanks

The 1067 should power them fine but if you could stretch to 2067 I think that would be better again.
