Soap Operas leave you with dry skin. I prefer Moisturizing Body Wash (with falafel loofah!) Operas.

I shopped for MA speakers a few years ago. Spent a couple hours in a local demo room switching back and forth between different models. I listened to the S6, S8, and GR10. The Silver series speakers were in the same room and I was able to switch back and forth between the two. After a lot of listening, I liked the smaller S6 better. Although it didn't play quite as low, I thought it had a better balance of tone and sound. The extra driver in the S8 muddied up the midrange just a bit.

Still, I ended up getting the GR10 bookshelf speakers. Overall, the Gold series was VERY similar to the Silver but had a more three dimensional presentation to the music with a tad more detail in the top end.

When I listened, these were the previous iterations of the current MA lines. I believe they still sound very similar with only minor cosmetic differences, respectively.

Looking back, I probably would have prefered the Silver series over the Gold because I found out I liked a more laid back speaker. Just my personal preference.

I heard the RS6s and RS8s not too long ago and yes, the 8s were more bassy (extra driver) than the 6s which could possibly muddle up the mids/highs a little. The 6s were smooth and detailed, easy to listen too. I read a review somewhere describing them as "bright"(not true). The cabinets are real veneer and nicely finished. Once you throw a sub in the mix, there's really no need to take the 8s over the 6s in my opinion. For two channel only, the 8s might possibly be the better choice. As I've mentioned before, these are nice, detailed speakers, they're just pricey esp. when you're buying a complete HT system. That's my $0.02.
...and the Gold series is quite a lot more expensive still, not as good value imo.

Adrian, your quote reminds me of the Matrix.

I think you could use the QS8s with the MA Silver Series and still be pretty close sonically.

Yeah, I wouldn't exactly call them bright. The GR10s. . .yes.
