    Hi,

    Got myself some RX6's for fronts now I've turned my attention towards surrounds.

    Looking for Monitor Audio RXFX.

    My fronts at the moment are Natural Oak, would like similar speakers, but am open to other colours if the price is good.

    Location: Bath

    I have monitor audio gold reference 10 in oak which are a better match to the rx6 than any bronze series. Great cond. With the original box, manual, bungs, etc. I'm in the west mids. Have a look at the cones and tweeters and they are similar to the RX series

    £285 which is a bargain considering they are £900 speakers. There is currently a pair on ebay for £600 with reserve. I don't think you can find better for less. Very rare to find them in oak in this condition from a non smoking, pet-free, children free home and with the original box, etc. The cones have never seen daylight since I got the speakers as the grilles have always been on. Happy to demo if you're ever in my area, I'm off M6 j11/12. Let me know today.

    I've been pondering parting with my Monitor Audio speakers, having boxed them all up at the beginning of last year when we refurbed the house they have been sat boxed up ready to be used again, unfortunately the wife has put the blockers on any sound setup in the living room so i'm considering selling them all to fund a decent soundbar.

    Anyway, I have a pair of RX1's, around 3 years old, boxed up for the last 20 months, never been pushed and always been ran in correctly, colour is natural oak, i'd say they were in mint condition. Also have a pair of RXFX in gloss black, same as above really, and lastly an RX centre in natural oak.

    If any is of interest i'd be looking for £225 for the RX1's, £200 for the RXFX and £150 for the RX centre.

    Possibly interested in the FX and the Centre. Need to have a look at my budget. How far are you from Bath?

    I've done quite a few trips to pick up speakers etc. Would you be willing to meet me halfway? I trust that the speakers are in great condition and fully working, how does £300 sound for the pair of RXFX and the Centre?

    The speakers are boxed up and pretty much like new, i've looked after them meticulously like all of my kit, they have never been abused in any way and have been ran in correctly. Unfortunately I can't meet as I just don't have the time, you are most welcome to collect if you like, i'll even sort some tea/coffee and biscuits! lol. Price wise i'll stick with my asking, its a very keen price judging by previous sales and the condition and little use mine have had, plus the gloss colours tend to always go for more money, so i'm happy with my pricing on these and they really are a bargain.

    Tea and biscuits sound great, its a shame otherwise I would have snapped them up instantly. I've got big deadlines in two weeks and with my attention turned towards speakers its crept up on me.

    I think the price is fair because you have kept them immaculate, I agree with the £350 for centre and pair of rxfx.

    But unfortunately I dont have the luxury of spending another day collecting gear, which sucks because I'm really enjoying putting together this project. I'm off today, I can set aside 3 hours, but I honestly cant justify 8 hours driving with my situation at the moment.

    I have a thread on the forum where I'm selling a monitor audio Gold Reference LCR (£250) and 4x Gold Reference FX surrounds (£450), all finished in natural oak. I'm also gonna be in the cotswolds next weekend, so I'll be close to bath.

    Maybe we could come to some arrangement.

    Completely understand, looking at distance you are 2.5hrs drive from me. There is the possibility of a courier as they are all boxed in their original boxes with all inserts etc, I could also get outer boxes to put those boxes into if you did fancy sorting a courier, but this would be down to you and I wouldn't be arranging.

    I can always hold on to these for you as i'm not in any major rush, i'm not planning on buying a new soundbar until January, in the hope the Samsung 950 gets under a grand! But i'm happy to keep hold for a while if you like.

    Truth be told I really want to hold on to these, but having had our living room all re-plastered last year a multi speaker setup is not on the cards, I kept these in the hope I could use them again in the future as they are just so good, but I just can't see a situation where I will and it will be an awful waste to just have them all boxed up not being used.

    I didnt think of a courier but that means added cost. They are great speakers, like I said at another time I would have taken them in a heartbeat. In regards to you keeping hold of them, that sounds great, but I'll keep the wanted post open in the hopes a pair of natural oaks pop up (most likely edit the thread as I'm certain on the FX and centre speaker). If I dont really get anything within 2-3 weeks I'll drop you a message.



    Thank you for the offer, but I decided I want silvers, same drivers and style set up. All the best with the sale!

    Its a possibility, they are boxed in their original boxes with all inserts etc, I could also use another outer box and padding for extra protection, but you would need to arrange the courier yourself, i'm happy packaging them up and taking pics etc.

    I'll need to go in the attic to measure exactly, won't be able to until Wed evening, but having a look online the centre would be around 10kg and measures 185 x 500 x 200 mm, boxed will be a bit larger, the RXFX will be around 10kg aswell for the pair and measure 250 x 300 x 120 mm for each speaker, these are packed face to face in the box so you should be able to get a rough dimension of outer box from that.

    If you cant get a rough idea of cost from that then i'll get the exact box dimensions on Wed evening for you.

    Got some quotes, the price isnt bad. The only issue now is budget. I've had a look around and found some very competitive prices. Depends on how much your willing to let your speakers go for?

    I'd want £335 as i'd offered the RXFX to someone for £185 so it's only fair to offer to you at the same price.
