"If you place a high priority on sonic resolution and detail the RX1s might make you wonder why people pay thousands of dollars for speakers. Expect a lively, dynamic, and well-defined sound, but without a painful or aggressive character."
"This RX1 system sounds amazingly musical, so much so that it is hard to imagine any system doing much better."
"A speaker that can allow you to hear each line, and know which instrument is which, can fairly be characterized as something special. The RX1 qualifies."
"The Monitor Audio RX1 is an exceptional speaker, no doubt about it. Its combination of midrange clarity and smoothness gets to the essence od a lot of music."

"Praise Monitor Audio's Silver range: the rigid, weighty MDF cabinets look superb. Edges are rounded smoothly, drivers are flush to the cabinet and every screw is cleanly placed. Top marks."
"They sound special too. Notes have punch and texture, vocals are handled confidently. The bass is capable of impressive weight and depth, and provides the foundation for a broad, dynamic soundstage. The RX1s go seriously loud too."
"Brains and beauty: what a package."

"The RX series system perfectly reproduced the four different sounds in Fast and Furious (roaring engines, squealing tires, throbbing music, and pummeling of lowlifes by Vin Diesel). Had I been blindfolded for this test, I'd have thought I was listening to a high-end system designed for a 25-seat home theater."

"Time and again over the past few months I've been thoroughly impressed by Monitor Audio's Silver RX system, and will be sad to see them leave. My experiences of music, and especially of movie, through these speakers have left me with a strong impression: This system has the uncanny ability to make possible an emotional connection to the sounds it reproduces."
"If you're in the market for a new home-theater speaker system, or even a pair of stereo speakers that offer a genuine taste of the high end in a classy, high-quality package, you owe it to yourself to give the Silver RX system a serious audition. Highly recommended!"
