"Despite the advances made in affordable speakers in the six years since I reviewed Monitor Audio's Silver RS6, its replacement, the Silver RX6, excelled in every parameter by today’s standards, demonstrating a broad range of strengths and no weaknesses…"
"It was an ideal match for every type of music, from delicate female voices and jazz trios to bombastic orchestral and electronic rock music. And its small footprint, attractive but unassuming appearance, and clean, extended bass performance make it an ideal home-theater speaker: one that obviates the need for a subwoofer. I can't think of another affordable speaker that better meets such a broad range of needs."

RX6 AV12 Surround System - 'Product of the Year' 2010, What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision
"The RX6 floorstanders are an excellent basis for a surround system, in as much as they're expressive, detailed, tonally even-handed and barnstormingly dynamic."
"Integration between the six speakers is first-rate, scale is considerable and unity unquestionable."
"Dramatic, dynamic, and beautifully balanced, there's a stack of detail on displayand the sort of poise and agility that's essential to make sense of the most testing rhythms."
"'A real crowd-pleaser, born to entertain,' we said of the Silver RX6 AV12 at this time last year, and nothing we've heard in the meantime has changed our minds."
- What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision, October 2010
"The RX6 staggered me with its deep, dynamic bass."
"The RX6's dynamics left me pining for a dumb, loud action movie... 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."

Sound + Vision, May 2010
"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!"
