    For sale from the Monitor Audio Silver RS range is the following:

    • Pair of RS6 front left & right speakers - £350
    • RSLCR centre speaker - £150
    • RSFX Surrounds - £200 (only for sale once the others have gone)
    • Or the RS6, RSLCR and RSFX together for £650
    • Plus 2x granite plinths custom made as bases for the RS6 - £80
    • Plus 1x SubDude HD sub isolation platform
    (RSW12 subwoofer, 500W (1000W peak) - SOLD)

    The speakers are in black oak while the sub is in gloss black.

    The speakers are in excellent condition, pretty much mint with no scratches or any other marks to the cabinets or the cones. The black oak is a great finish, blends in well but close up it has a nice grain to it, while the gloss black on the sub is a nice contrast.

    I purchased the set brand new from a local Sevenoaks Sound & Vision shop. They have been used in a smoke, child and pet free home and been extremely well looked after.

    I have all the original boxes, which are still in great undamaged condition, with all original protective wrapping & moulded polystyrene packaging. I also have all the manuals, unused port bungs, speaker spikes, plinths and original speaker terminal jumper bars etc. When you open the boxes it really will be like opening them from new :thumbsup:.

    The sub is also in excellent condition; there are a few minor hairline swirls on the top, but these are only visible when crouching to inspect and are not generally noticeable – they certainly do not affect the nice glossy finish. There are also one or two small marks on the sub cone. I don’t know where these came from as I have always used it with the grill on. They are generally not that noticeable, but under certain lighting one small area appears whiter than the main cone at certain angles. It probably will rub off but for now I have left it alone. The marks are minor and are 100% not from any physical damage/impact etc, so the performance/sound is completely unaffected. UPDATE: Sub now sold.

    All speakers are in perfect working order. I’ve never had any issues with them and there is no hum from the sub or anything like that. I’ve always been very pleased with them.

    So for the main left & right speakers, the centre and the surrounds, I am looking for £650 for the full set. I would obviously prefer to sell the package as one rather than bit by bit, but will consider splitting if a couple of people are interested - priced individually in the list at the top.

    You’ll see in the pics that I’ve had the sub supported on a SubDude HD isolation platform (from Auralex) to help eliminate resonance transfer. I found this to tighten the sound and also reduce unwanted vibrations through the floor. These cost £60 each and I will throw this in if someone takes the full set :). The platform is 15x15 inches and just over 2.5 inches tall, and I still have the box for posting. UPDATE : sub now sold but this is still available; let's say 30 quid.

    Collection from TN16 would be preferable (Westerham/Bromley, in Kent/SE Greater London), although I will consider meeting somewhere halfway if needed, depending on distance. I am also happy for the buyer to arrange their own courier if they want. Box/weight details are below for courier estimates if needed. I work from home so can be flexible with collection.

    A very good review of the quality of the RS6 speakers can be found here: http://www.stereophile.com/floorloudspeakers/306monitor/

    *** I have a listed my RSFX bi-pole & di-pole surround speakers in black oak to help sell the others if someone is looking for the full surround set up, but not entirely convinced I want to sell these, so I won't let them go individually until the fronts and centre have sold.

    Shipping details (arranged by buyer at buyers cost):
    • RS6 box = 106 x 31 x 37cm; weight = 18.5kg (x2)
    • RSLCR box = 60 x 31 x 29cm; weight = 10kg
    • RSFX box = TBC (1 box with both inside)
    • RSW12 box = 51 x 50 x 49cm; weight = 28kg - sold
    Any questions please ask.

    Hi AFM1,

    What price do you have in mind for just the RSW12?

    Thanks in advance :)

    Sorry for the delay g1ng3r - would prefer to wait to see if someone wants them all for a while first, but will have a little think and get back to you. Are you close enough to collect or would you need it couriered?

    Do you have a price in mind to include the surrounds ? I am on the south coast so meeting up halfway would be ok for me.

    Also interested in the RSW12 if you can find a buyer for the other speakers separately

    Corban - I'm thinking 200 for the fx surrounds, but would only sell them with as a set with the rest, or at the end, but not on their own before the others have gone. Are you looking for the full 5.1 or just the surrounds?

    g1ng3r & Grangey, I'm thinking 300 for the RSW12.

    I know there are two other interested party's in the sub. If that doesn't happen I will pay £300 for it quite happily.

    Thanks Ben, will keep you mind as things develop. Would you collect, meet, or need a courier?

    I can organise my own courier to collect. So if you wouldn't mind just to make sure it's all packaged up correctly.

    Corban, just thought about the surrounds, I guess if including them as a full 5.1 then adding 200 extra may be too much. Therefore I'd revise that to 800 for the front 3 and sub, as per the original ad, or 900 to include the surrounds, so only an extra 100 which is more reasonable as a total figure.

    Don't really want to part with the surrounds but if it helps the sale of the rest then so be it...

    Also, you say they are pretty much mint, could you please advise on any imperfections at all. Thank you.

    Sorry all - been away for a few days - will have a look in the next hour or so and reply - but in the meantime regarding the query about imperfections, I can spot none at all

    Guys, thanks for the interest and sorry for the late reply. I'm also off to France for a week so my replies next week may also be a little sporadic, but I'll try to check and reply each day....

    D M B - I'm still holding out for the full set to go as one (I'm looking at you Corban ;) ) but will keep you in mind if I decide to split.

    Same for the guys interested in the sub.

    Hope you understand - Will update soon if no takers.

    Eamon - these would make a great addition to your new house so don't hold back!! ;)

    To confirm the speakers are all mint - no marks, dings or anything at all.

    Cheers

    Ok thanks for letting me know.

    FWIW, I am interested in the speakers if you change your mind. I've looked at courier costs, and given that this would be up to me to sort, I can offer £250. If this is tempting, I could send you the money by BT first thing Monday.

    Thanks D M B - too low though I'm afraid. Was thinking more like 350.

    AFM1, i've had a think over the weekend. I can up my offer to £280 but that is my limit. I have my eye on something else as well, but would prefer these. I can pay right away.

    Hi Grayman, like I said to DMB above, I'd be looking for around 350 on their own. Sorry for the late reply; I'll be back from holiday Friday late afternoon.
