About Monitor Audio

Monitor Audio Ltd is a British owned and managed global specialist in hi-fi loudspeaker design. For over 40 years we've been incorporating stereo and surround sound systems and a range of sonically matched architectural speakers for ultra discreet high quality sound around the home and outside.

Whatever your taste and budget you'll discover a Monitor Audio speaker that answers your desire for great sound. Since hi-fi was in its infancy we've dedicated all our technical expertise, innovation and craftsmanship to the creation of world-class loudspeakers, which communicate the essence of our brand and reward the people who buy them. We want you to share and enjoy the blend of style, quality, performance and sophistication that makes Monitor Audio unique.

Our success is not simply a matter of excellent sound quality, although expert listeners around the world will testify to that. It's more about how we deliver the sonic superlatives. By consistently refining and applying our technologies, Monitor Audio has become the world's foremost expert in developing metal dome drivers. Metal is not the easiest material to shape, which is why many of our competitors choose paper or plastic. But it does have amazing properties for more life-like sound reproduction when treated correctly.

The Ceramic-Coated Aluminium Magnesium (C-CAM®) metal alloy driver cones used throughout our comprehensive range are very light, but very rigid and strong. Such a magical mix of properties allows them to reproduce the most delicate musical atmospherics as well as the dynamic bass excursions of movie action scenes or an explosive kick drum barrage. Our proprietary C-CAM® drivers can be much smaller than conventional designs and yet operate way beyond the limits of human audibility without distortion. This means that we can design slimmer more elegant cabinets around them, so you enjoy class-leading audio performance from speakers that better suit your décor and lifestyle. And since they all share a consistency of tonal accuracy our on-wall, in-wall, floor or stand-mounting speakers may be mixed for the perfect aesthetic and sonic result in any environment. In the strength and depth of our ever-evolving product portfolio, Monitor Audio continues to demonstrate the power of a high quality, high performance loudspeaker brand that serves every application, taste and budget - and every possible desire.

Music

Myles Kennedy

"Thanks to Monitor Audio I am rediscovering some of my favourite recordings. The clarity and definition of the GX is incredible. From Ella Fitzgerald to Bon Scott, I’m hearing nuances and detail in vocal performances I’ve never heard before. I couldn’t be happier with these speakers!"

Nicola Benedetti

Violin virtuoso Nicola Benedetti is a prodigy by any definition. While studying at the Yehudi Menuhin school, she won the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition in May 2004 at the age of 16. She’s played in concerts and recitals at major venues all over the world, and with many leading orchestras, so Nicola knows a thing or two about musical accuracy. Which is why she’s happy listening to the Monitor Audio GX300s.

Tony Iommi

Tony Iommi, the legendary musician widely credited as having invented the sound of heavy metal, has joined forces with Monitor Audio to help promote the benefits of dynamic full-frequency music reproduction. In a Monitor Audio advertising campaign featured in Classic Rock magazine, the founding member of metal gods Black Sabbath is pictured with a flagship Platinum PL300 speaker.

Mr Iommi, who owns several pairs of Monitor Audio's speakers, said "I'm delighted to be associated with Monitor Audio and I'm a huge fan of their products. If this helps to get great sound in front of a wider audience,...

The Union

Formed by LUKE MORLEY, guitarist/songwriter for legendary UK rock band THUNDER and WINTERVILLE's W.C Handy Award-winning guitarist/vocalist PETER SHOULDER, THE UNION lives up to its name, blending hard rock with a blues edge to create a sound that injects the essence of an illustrious heritage with a taut contemporary dynamic.

“We used GS10s throughout the recording process, all the way from demos in my home studio to mixing at Leeders Farm and they were true and consistent from start to finish…”
