Hi, have you compared the RX1 to the Gold series GX50 and GX100? Have you listened to any other bookshelves(Proac D1, B&W PM1 etc) before deciding on the RX1? Would appreciate your thoughts on the RX1, the sonic attributes of it in comparison to other bookshelves.jimm said:I found the kefs to be excellent for bass, the q100 is a great all round speaker, the only reason i changed to monitor audio rx1's was because i listen near field and found them a little shouty, i couldnt listen for long periods, i dont think you will be dissapointed with the q100's!

Don't know if this helps or not but I was in the dealers a couple of weeks ago and had a listen to both the GX100 and GX200. They were connected to Audiolab hardware and to me sounded great. Very open and detailed. Not a hint of hardness / brightness though. Interestingly I didn't think that the GX200 was any more bassy than the GX100 despite the huge difference in size. In fact I preferred the smaller speaker.
I have a pair of RX6's which I think are excellent. They sound different to the GX speakers but as I use a completely different amplifier and the room is not ideal, it's hard to really compare them.
Fair to say that the GX speakers would definitely be on my shortlist if I were to upgrade.
