    The RS1 is having brave reviews.

    As for the others only the RS6 would have my vote...

    I still prefer bookshelf speakers, but the S6/RS6 are nice.

    i love my S series setup, S6, SLCR, SFX sides, S2 rears.......S6's work sooooooo nicely in stereo with classical or acoustic music, yet can still pump out some dance as well :)

    would be interested to know how the new RS compare, cuz i do need another pair of SFX's for rear duty so my S2's can become diagonal surrounds for multichannel music.....i cant afford for a good few months tho so most likely will have to get RSFX and am interested to know if there is much difference in the sound...dont want it all mixed up....

    Bought the RS6s 2 months ago. Very nice speakers, indeed: clear, detailed and with lots of oomph. Suspect you will need the RS8s for rooms bigger than 25 m2, though.

    I thought the only diff was the looks of the speakers?? And the new sub design, which does look very good.
