Monitor Audio GX200 (& GX 350C Center speaker)
« on: May 19, 2017, 09:43:30 AM »
I put up the center speaker here already for R8500: https://www.avforums.co.za/index.php/topic,63527.0.html

Now the matching GX200 floorstanders for R18500.  Don't let anyone tell you they can't do bass.  i put on some Yello and the bass was very good and palpable.  they are definitely not 'warm' speakers.  They lean towards clean and analytical in a good way.  They will punish bad MP3-type music.  Again they contain trickle-down tech from the MA Platinum series.  As one reviewer said:

"My first impression — one that continued throughout my time with the Gold GX system — was of outstanding definition and clarity in the highs, and a soundstage that extended well beyond the towers’ physical locations.  The GX200 also has a fairly extended low end. On the CD Bill Frisell with Dave Holland and Elvin Jones, its reproduction of Holland’s acoustic bass on “Moon River” easily seemed to dip into the subwoofer range".

Please note: I am only selling as a set.  I will not sell the GX200 apart from the GX350C.  I will however sell the center and perhaps keep the GX200.  Alternatively if the center sells first, I may sell the GX200s later.  i think retail on the GX200 is about R40300-00.  Damages is really only visible up close and personal.

"I heard RX8 and GX200 side by side not long ago, and let's say my conclusion is that the GX is well worth the price difference, the whole spectrum is even more precise and balanced than the RX which is already very good" - Here; http://www.avsforum.com/forum/89-speakers/1763577-need-help-monitor-audio-rx10-gx200-gx300.html

Condition:

GX350C is in excellent condition

GX200 - look like they have been bumped at the bottom so that the wood inserts that the spikes are mounted into have transferred that force to the cabinets, resulting in the cabinets bulging out a bit.  Can really only be seen with the grills off.  The grills run from the very to to the very bottom of the speaker so they cover the bulges.  Otherwise they're in very good condition, and full working order.  Asking price reflects this so please don't ask for extra discount due to the bulges  :D
