monitor audio's silver range is very good however the bass can overwelm you so be careful of your room dimensions particularily if your going for a 2 channel setup only, the last thing you want is a boomy system. If your room is on the smaller side maybe look at the S6's or possibly a standmounter from their top of the line gold range, like the GR10, probably cost the same and offer better overall performance.
My experience was completely opposite. I auditioned about 10 pairs of towers between $1000-2000. After listening to S10's at two different dealers, I found the S10 lacking in bass and even moreso when compared lastly to the Paradigm Monitor 11 towers which I eventually bought.
