Expert review by : What Hi-Fi? (whathifi.com)

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 speakers and excellent customer service

 

Went into Kingston branch to purchase some speakers, Myles was so helpful and felt no pressure on time to make a decision. I went I to buy Kef Q350 speakers but the Monitor Audios were recommended to try I they were so much better. The sound stage just...

Already impressed and not yet fully run in!

 

It seems odd to start with build quality but in the end that was the deciding factor. They look amazing. Now for the sound, well its the classic I am hearing music in a new way, instruments that I didn't know existed on tracks I thought I was familiar...

Wow!!

 

Ive now had these speakers for a couple of weeks, and wow what a sound they produce, and these arent even fully 'broken in' as yet!! I upgraded from The Mission LX-2's which I thought had an amazing sound, until I plugged these in, then you are just...
