    Definitely the GR10s, much better than any of the Silver series which is now discontinued anyway.

    Just because you can get it very cheap doesn't mean it's going to be any better for you system. Decide on a budget for speakers and then listen to all that fall within that budget ignoring any price differences, that is how to demo speakers. If you can't afford £800 for the GR10s then they are not in the running, if you can then listen to them and the S8s and make your own mind up.

    Agree with Crustyloafer the GR10's are pretty special compared to the S8's and definitly worth the money.
