Monitor Audio Silver 100 review

 

More of the same from Monitor Audio's Silver range, and that's a good thing.

Clear and well-organised presentation ; Bold, punchy, well-balanced sound ; Impressive sense of timing and dynamics ; Superbly easy listen

Nothing of note

It’s more of the same from Monitor Audio’s latest Silver range, and it simply leaves us wanting to test the next pair

Monitor Audio Silver 1

 

Gorgeous-looking – and sounding – speakers that can nevertheless be a bit fussy

Seriously deep bass ; Strong dynamics ; Clarity ; Gorgeous build

Fussy with positioning ; A little too analytical ; Bass can be a bit unwieldy

So they can be a little picky about their environment, and there are better all-rounders for the money.

Monitor Audio Silver 1 Bookshelf Loudspeaker Review

 

Monitor Audio's Silver 1 is a gorgeously crafted bookshelf speaker with mostly excellent engineering, surprisingly powerful bass, and world-class treble.

Build and finish quality ; Outstanding treble ; Bass quality and quantity (for the size) ; Value for money ; Smooth upper midrange dispersion ; Sonically benign grille

Smooth upper midrange dispersion ; Sonically benign grille

THE MONITOR AUDIO SILVER 1 Offers a Beautiful Cabinet and Good Sound.

Monitor Audio Silver 1 & 5

 

Klein en betaalbaar is een relatief begrip. Bij klein kunnen we ons allemaal nog iets voorstellen maar bij betaalbaar lopen de meningen sterk uiteen. Koopt de één een home cinema set voor 250 euro en vindt dat duur, de ander draait de hand niet om met...

Ik kan voorop stellen dat de Monitor Audio Silver 1 en de Silver 5 een genoegen waren om naar te luisteren. Niet altijd haal ik meerdere types in huis en ga een directe vergelijking aan. Nu met twee types uit hetzelfde huis en zelfs uit dezelfde serie...

Monitor Audio Silver 1

 

Als zeer goed! De Monitor Audio Silver 1 wordt door testredacteuren gezien als één van de betere Compacte Speakers. Door de wijze waarop BesteProduct.nl de expertscore berekent, haalt maar een beperkt deel van de producten een score van 7,5 of hoger....

Helderheid ; Sterke dynamiek ; Geweldige afwerking ; Serieus diepe bas

Kieskeurig wat betreft positionering ; Een beetje te analytisch ; Bas kan een beetje onhandig zijn ; Heeft een redelijkheid krachtige versterker nodig

GREAT SOUND, SUPERB BUILD.

 

Having read a few reviews of these speakers I totally agree with their findings, ie, lovely transparent sound & extended controlled bass, bearing in mind their compact sound.

looks good and sounds great too

 

Not had the speakers very long, but our cd collection sounds so much better, even though the speakers are still 'running in'.

Brilliant system

 

After listening to a few speakers we chose the Monitor 100 and then decided to upgrade the Amp to get the best sound possible Very pleased with both

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

Good all rounders

 

Have had the speakers for a couple of weeks now, so still running in really but first impressions are very positive. Bass is tight and well extended and they are capable of rendering a lot of detail from the music. Soundstage is precise and...

Fab n' Groovy . . . Monitor Audio Silver 100

 

An excellant, good value for money deal. Despite a few missing frequencies on my hearing, these more than compensate on all the others. Been after something of this quality for years. With a Denon DM41 > amazing . . . might have to buy another one ;o)
