Do the MA BR2s with the boring black plasticky surround around the, er, drivers (? - boy, i really know my stuff!) sound different to the ones with the more metallic silvery surrounds...? Id post pictures so you know what im gibbering about, but i dunno how, and i couldnt find pics of the former.

I was speaking with a dealer near me and he was telling me how Monitor has packed up all of their manufacturing for the non-high end speakers to china, and that there's been a noticeable decline in quality. Do the black surrounds and silver ones correspond to older and newer models?

I don't know if I believe him though, it shouldn't matter where something is manufactured as long as the same quality controls and standards are applied.

Often Chinese made stuff is of a higher quality than their UK counterparts. It would be interesting to test UK and Chinese models side to side though.

Not possible. The chinese model will be surrounded by an army of viscious little blue clad speakers preventing you from getting to it.
