    What subject are you studying and why Monitor Audio in particular?

    1. Mission 771e
    2. Stereo
    3. 2x Bookshelf
    1x Centre
    1x Subwoofer
    4x Satellites (whichever category they fit in)

    4. Good reviews and good second hand deals
    5. I've never seen/heard any MA speakers so here goes:
    - They look good.
    - Can't comment on this one
    - The most expensive ones :D (Gold Reference I think)
    6. Fronts: Paid £80
    Centre: Paid £80
    Subwoofer: Paid £279
    Rears: Paid £60 for Logitech surround set including 4 sats and a sub. 1 pair of sats are rears, 1 pair are another stereo pair off axis, sub isn't used ATM.

    That's a very impressive setup you've got for an A-level student (or any student for that matter!) although I've never heard of Ixox cables ;)

    Edit: Now waiting patiently for a hug :)

    *hug* Heh.

    I'm doing Design and Technology, I decided to do monitor audio because I actually own the set of bronze speakers, so I can open them up and analyse them.

    Cheers for the compliment! It's my hobby, and i've worked hard for my setup. :)

    Thanks alot chaps, keep the replies coming.
    What's the definition of a satelite speaker? Is it wireless?
    Also, if you own any monitor audio speakers, then please state which ones. :)

    Thanks again.

    At the moment, I have 2 :D One is Mordaunt Short 904s, and one is the KEF Q1.

    About equal use of both, though I guess the Mordaunt Short system is more of a movie use.

    Setup one: 2 floorstanders, 1 centre, 2 bookshelfs and a sub. (MS setup)
    Setup two: 2 bookshelf, 2 compact bookshelf, 1 centre, 1 sub. (KEF Q series - havent actually bought it all yet, but thats what it will be).

    For the KEFs, istening to them in a demo, they were far better than the Monitor Audio B2s and B4s. For the MSs, the were on a great offer, and they had good reviews.

    Pretty average really. There's nothing wrong with them, but they look a bit like every other speaker out there (at least the Bronze and silver series).

    The Bronze series are the only ones I heard, and to be honest, the B4s were a bit boomy and poorly controlled bass, with quite a nasty tweeter. The B2s had a better bass control, but there was something missing in the frequency range at the top of the mid-range which made the high frequencies sound nasty again. I wouln't buy them now even at near half the price, having hear them, Im afraid. I think the hi-fi magazines have over hyped them.

    Probably the silver series, though I dont like the design of the floorstanders, the separation of the bass cone and the mid-frequency cone looks odd to me.

    Paid £150 for the MSs, £225 for the KEFs. Would pay up to £350 probably.
    Would pay up to £200. Probably pay £180 for the Q compacts. Only paid £50 for the rears in my MS setup.
    Dont have any, though if I could get a single q compact as a single centre rear for £50 I'd be tempted.
    Paid £120 for the MS, and will hopefully get the KEF for around £150 2nd hand. Wouldnt pay much more than that.
    Paid £80 for the eltax in my MS setup, but will probably pay about £200-£250 for my KEF setup. Wouldn't pay more than about £260.


    No problem. :)

    Sounds good. As a student myself I know about working for a system! Not that everyone else hasn't worked for theirs. ;)

    I'd consider a satellite speaker to be something like the Kef Eggs or Mordaunt Short Genies to give 2 examples. Certainly wireless unfortunately although some of the new HTIB are going that way. :)

    1. Mission 78 series

    2. Primarily music, but sometimes films

    3. 5 speakers: 2 floorstanders (783), 1 centre(78c), 2 wall mounted satellites (Sony POS)

    4. Previous experience with the brand, good user and magazine reviews, well regarded brand.

    5. MA speakers are nice, but I'm not sure if I would buy them over other brands necessarily. Good looking design, and highly regarded. I would be most interested in the gold and silver series.

    6. Fronts... Paid £430
    - Surrounds... Received free
    - Surround backs... don't have these
    - Centre... £180
    - Subwoofer... don't have one
    As far as what I would pay, the sky is the limit, although realistically £7k for a complete package.

    1) KEF 2005.2 & 5005
    2) Films
    3) 5.1 (Sattelites) - wall mounted.
    4) Reviews, Comments, Best in range for price, giving discreet 5.1
    5) Don't have one, never heard or seen (noticed) that brand
    6) £850 for 4 x 2005.2 Sattelites, 1x5005 Centre, Rel Quake Sub

    Maybe include:
    - whether they're bi-wireable, and actually setup for that.
    - placement. Someone is always asking about that.
    - room size.

    2. Both

    3. 7.1 Main L+R floorstanders, Centre (speaks for it's self), Rear L+R bi pole, Rear back L+R book shelf, sub. (For makes see signiture)

    4. Because I liked the sound of them, then even liked the sound of them when I got them home too.

    5. I think they have a good overall design, and have mid high quality sound to them

    6. - Fronts...£180
    - Surrounds...£120
    - Surround backs...£130
    - Centre...£100
    - Subwoofer...£60

    All but fronts from richersounds, over the past 3-4 years. Money saving time for me for all kit, a few years more (selling a few things helped too). Over all buying all the stuff I have today-most of my life :)

    Hang on a minute, your studying "A" levels (so you're under 18 presumably) and you have a set-up like that already :eek:

    That's something like £5k's worth of kit!

    Does your dad know you're putting his kit in your sig :p

    Jealously,
    DT

    1. Blue Sky

    2. 50/50 music/movies

    3. 7.1 setup - all speakers are bookshelf/standmount

    4. When I went with a separate processor it was just as cheap to get active speakers as buy a power amp. Great reviews of the speakers. Highly recommended. Great price. Had a free 1 week home demo.

    5. Never heard MA speakers

    6. Fronts - £375 each
    Centre - £375
    Surrounds £275 each
    Surround Backs - £275 each
    Subwoofer - £2800
    If I could afford it and I thought the upgrade was worth while then I would pay whatever I needed to.

    HTH,
    Mark.

    1. What make are your main set of speakers? ... (If monitor audio, which series?

    For home cinema they are all Mission (M74i for the front L & R)
    For stereo Cyrus (22L)


    2. Are your speakers primarily used for stereo use? (Music)...
    - Or do you use them more for multichannel? (Films)...
    - Or do you have equal use of both?...

    Home cinema is 90% multichannel films (no multichannel music)
    Stereo is 100% stereo music

    3. How many speakers do you have in your main setup?...
    Out of these, how many are
    - Floor standing speakers?...
    - Bookshelf speakers?...
    - Centre speakers?...
    - In wall speakers?...
    - In ceiling speakers?...
    - Other?...

    Home cinema
    2 Floor standing (front L & R)
    1 Centre
    4 'bookshelf' bipolar rears
    1 Sub

    Stereo
    2 Floor standing


    4. What made you choose your brand of speakers over another brand?...

    Home cinema - Fronts (Mission) were bought due to past good experience and price (and to lesser part look)

    Stereo - (Cyrus) Performance & look

    5. What are your opinions on Monitor Audio Speakers?...
    - Do you like the design?...
    - How do they sound to you?...
    - Which model range of MA would most appeal to you if you didn’t have your current brand of speakers?...

    Design - a little too 'boxy' shaped for my tastes, dont like the black plinths the higher series are stood on

    Sound - it has been too long since I listened to them

    Preference - would need to listen to them but probably the top I could afford


    6. Please indicate what you paid, or what you would be prepared to pay for these speakers
    - Fronts...
    - Surrounds...
    - Surround backs...
    - Centre...
    - Subwoofer...

    Home Cinema

    MarkE19 - MA are just down the road from you (not sure how far Rayleigh is from Rainham, but it's the same county). You ought to check them out!

    To answer the questions:

    1) MA S8's
    2) Primarily for watching TV, as I only have a panel without speakers built in. After that it's probably about 50/50 music & film.
    3) 6, including sub. Two floors, two bookshelves (on stands), one centre and the sub.
    4) Combination of price, appearance and auditioning.
    5) Very pleased with looks and sound. It's a shame their subs aren't up to the job though, so that I could have had a complete visually matching set.
    I suppose the only other model of MA's would be the gold reference, although if I were to upgrade I would have to audtion other brands alongside.
    6) This is what I paid, no plans to upgrade at the moment so difficult to put a prioce on what I might pay: Fronts - £800, Surrounds - £300, Centre - £250, Sub _ £650.

    Hope that helps.

    Mordaunt Short Genie Sats with an MS909 sub

    100% Film + TV only

    7 channels, 6 sats (bookshelf under your classification) and 1 centre. 1 Sub as well

    Company loyalty and massive staff discount.

    I like many of their designs although not wildly keen on the Radius. Sound is detailed and quite full although the Golds are too bright for this set of ears. Wouldn't say no to a pair of S6's though.

    Can't (won't) say. The list price for what I've got would be £1250 which I think is pretty fair.

    Hey it killed some time.

    Hi Scott,

    1. Mission (elegante)

    2. More or less equal use

    3. Floor standing:
    2x Mission e83 (main left/right front)
    2x M&K CS-35 (surrounds)
    1x Paradigm Servo-15 (sub)
    On AV rack:
    1x Mission e8c (centre)

    4. Brand itself wasn't the criteria. Appeal (design), build quality, reviews, match my amp. and set-up and last but not least audition were.
    5. Can't really say anything about MA as I don't know them too well. In general I can't really stand the normal (wooden veneer) box designs - ergo the Missions :)
    6. between 3 and 4K in total :D
    which was very much what I could and wanted to spend max.

    Cheers,
    Michael

    Rayleigh to Rainham is about 20 or so miles, but I'm sure I could find some MA speakers a lot closer than that - in a local AV/HiFi shop perhaps :devil:
    I am trying to avoid doing any HiFi/AV demos at the moment as they nearly always end up costing me money :nono: , besides I am very happy with my active Blue Sky speakers.

    Mark.
