Outstanding highs but not fatiguing what so ever . I spent a few hours demoing the Silver 1's , Klipsch RP 160-m Book shelves and RP 280-f floor Standers . All outstanding speakers but to my ears and application the Monitors won me over being so smooth especially on the top end "highs" and so smooth they were putting me in a trance lol . I could close my eyes and it felt like I was front row with a live band . I was very impressed also though with the Klipsch and they wowed me to but in a different way and again outstanding!
I highly recommend listening to some Monitor silvers for those who haven't . Depending on your taste and needs I think you'll be very impressed .
When I got home they sounded as good if not better as they were a perfect match with my Nad 356bee . Even though I Just used a entry level Onkyo CD player vs at the dealer with some audiofile quality music on a thumb drive .
Very cool. Aces High, Andrew, speaks highly of the Silver series too. I haven't heard those but have heard the Gold and really liked them. Good to see you posting.

Almost fell outta my chair when the Coach told me to check who's posting again. Welcome back, amigo. How the heck have you been? I see you changed careers. Very nice. Everything going well I hope? Is there a new Mrs. Factor in the fold?

My old brain ain't what she used to be. You went from the Kefs, to Dyns to the Monitor Audio Silvers? I still have a little memory left. Just don't tell my wife. "what honey? Oh, sorry, I forgot." What made you decide to audition the Silvers?

Waboooooooo ! 😊
LOL No Mrs Factor I'm still leasing with the option to buy 😎
You know I actually went down to audition some Klipsch book shelves and some standers for exclusively 2 channel blitz . Sold my Dynaudios a while back and have been running some def techs 450s that were very boring but did ok . Had my eye on some Monitor Silvers from all the things I've read and heard but no dealer in my area had them except online and didn't want to buy them just on hear say . So off to the dealer to audition some Klipsch and there a was box on the floor not even opened yet of Monitor Silver 1's the exact ones I wanted to hear . Asked my salesman why they had them not being a dealer he said they were in the process of becoming one . Asked if I could hear them and he said sure there goimg to be demos anyway so we opened them up . Long story short I fell in love after a few hours of the demo back and fourth between the Klipsch and those . Really liked the velvety smooth top end and broad sound stage , great bass to . Next question was what's my good guy price if I can buy them . He said he'll be right back , Came back and said they retail for 875 but because there demos "and smiled " 😜 LoL my price was 700 😱
Couldn't load them up in my Truck fast enough lol.
Phenomenal speakers and to my ears and taste the best 2 channel experience I've ever experienced 👍
The crazy part is there still breaking in and was told and read they will get even better.
Anyway that's my Factor story and I'm sticking to it !
Hope all is well my friend !

Just a little update on my Silver book shelves .
Probably have over a 100 hours on them and about 60 on my Nad c568 .
It sounded great before but now as elevated to amazing .
Such a beautiful silky smooth sound with outstanding detail without being fatiguing. These are the only speakers I've ever owned that I can listen for hours and feeling there to bright but yet has amazing detail with a huge front stage . These speakers combined with my Nad 356 bee and c368 is a match made in heaven .
I can see some Silver floor standers in the near future even though I feel I don't need them lol .

Bump !!

Update still loving these MA Silver 1's👍
Best speakers I've ever owned for 2 channel there absolutely delightful in all areas .
Been buying new music for months instead of constantly needing to upgrade gear and digging up old music I've had for years that has been given new life .
The only thing I can possibly see in my future is possibly adding a Nad amp to the 356bee and or some tower MA's . But I'm in no rush and it's not a need more of a desire not even a want . Just the audiophile in me fighting the upgrade feeling .
This modest 2 channel setup I've got now is a match made up in heaven and couldn't be happier .
Just thought I'd throw a update out there to all my MA brothers and sisters 😁
Now that the newness has worn off they still overwhelm me with their sound quality in all areas and seem to keep sounding better !
Anyone thinking of making a change I can't recommend Monitor Audio enough and to give them a listen and if you can match them up with NAD it's a match made in heaven .
