Monitor Audio speakers owner's thread - tips and info

Hi friends
I am on to my 2nd set of MAs, having owned the Bronze series and I love to share their sound with other like minded friends, so I am posting this so others can ask questions and share tips and for owners to log in too.

So bro when are you getting this speaker? I had the GR10 before, it is a very good speaker, I guess the GS10 must be even better!

NAD & MA RS1
« Reply #13 on: October 17, 2007, 16:11 »
a question someone posed which I think others will benefit from:

"need to ask you whether a NAD amp will be good enough to drive your MA RS1 speakers?  and i wonder if it will be a suitable combination boh.... thanks!"


The RS1 is a v sensitive speaker at 91db and most amps will have no issue
I have used a 10w amp and it was fine and can be driven to pretty loud levels.
The pairing should be fine, but your ears are the final judge.

RS1 and XXX amp
« Reply #14 on: October 23, 2007, 20:45 »
Everyone now and then someone wants to know this
So I will post the pms I get on this

eg
"I recently purchased a Trend Audio TA 10 and plug it inot my recycled old mini hifi speakers.
The volume is rather weak for my small room
Is your MA RS1 suitable for this amplifier?"

The RS series or even the BR series are fairly sensitive speakers at 89-91db at 6ohms.
Even a 87db speaker will produce sound, but obviously a more sensitive speaker does better.

Even so do not expect miracles and depth plunging bass from a low current amp.

Try first and see, bring the amp down to Precision Audio and give it a spin

Cheers
