Apex Series: Large-scale Sound

“Large-scale sound; no-nonsense looks; good integration; plenty of punch.”

“Apex doing a great job of placing instruments on the stage around you in space.”

“But the overall impression is one of big standmounters rather than bijou style speakers.”

“It’s a luxurious proposition, this system. ..its sonic character and build do elevate it above the competition.”

“It’s well worth every one of its five stars, too,… it has the best all-round satellite speakers of its similarly priced peers.”

Apex 5.1 System Review

For: Excellent sound, fine styling, clever design, luxurious build.

Against: Nothing to note.

“Looks good, sounds even better.”

“...the Apex system delivers. It’s gorgeously styled and expertly assembled.”

“What sets the Apex apart is its sonic prowess - which is considerable.”

“Key to that is the quality of both the cabinets, inert all-metal enclosures and the drive units.”

“This sophisticated design helps the Apex deliver an articulate and reassuringly powerful sound even when listened to in isolation.”

“When the ensemble is underpinned by the stentorian efforts of the AW-12 subwoofer, a compact yet muscular bassmaker, the result is sound that more than matches Monitor Audio’s lofty aspirations. It’s muscular when called upon, but articulate and beautifully integrated too.”

“As a result, it plays music almost as well as it relays film sound, capturing both vocal intonation and instrumental detail with relish.”

“The Monitor Audio Apex is a remarkable newcomer. Why spend more than £2000? Easy: you could have all this...”

Apex has the pecs

"...High-frequencies are smooth as silk, speech couldn't be clearer if the actors were in the room and the rear soundstage is willfully expansive. And with music, this system nailed the emotion and energy of any recording I threw at it. Clean, full bodied vocals, metronomic timing and wonderful detail reproduction make for a spine-tingling listen and reveal it to be a fantastic all-rounder."

The holy grail of style speaker systems

"It offers the sort of powerful, insightful audiophile sound that you don’t automatically associate with satellite speakers, a result of the astonishing build quality and clever technology that lies within each unit."

Monitor Audio raises the style bar

"It's muscular when called upon, but articulate and beautifully integrated too, with little audible sign of the crossover from speakers to subwoofer."
