These are better sounding speakers than my B&W DM 602 S2. I love them because the tweeter have excellent details without be harsh. Bass is powerfull and well defined. Match these speakers with good electronic and you will fall in love. !

Strength:

The highs are excellent
the bass is great,very speedy drivers
nice small footprint with wonderful fit and finish

Weakness:

The speaker covers vibrate at high volume levels.
Midrange is a bit thin

I have had these speakers for almost 3 years now.I use them with covers off and sitting on well damped stands biwired .These speakers are used in a two channel setup with a very fast sub.In this scenario these bookshelves sound fabulous.Good soundstage,lots of resolution,definition and dynamics.They have a respectable quantity and quality of bass for a bookshelf,delivering an honest 40hz easily.The real-wood veneers are first rate gorgeous.The binding posts are very decent as well,quite beefy.I used to own a pair of B&W CDM 1nt which were about 50% more cost than the silvers.The B&Ws were quite good,no complaints.Are they better than the Silver S2s?I am not sure.Midrange maybe and looks but that would be it.
The Monitor Audio Silver S2 is alot of speaker and sits at the top of its class,imo.

Strength:

Fit and finish was beautiful. Perfect for Home Theater fronts or rears.

Weakness:

Just didn't cut it as a Stereo Speaker

As I have left the realm of HT, and decided I needed HiFi, I gave these speakers a good long demo (and they were already broken in, being demo's). They sounded wonderful when being used within a HT environment, or simply DirecTV...but were too thin when it came to HiFi...very bright, nothing in the middle, and a nice bottom.
