Gold 300 - Style Meets Substance

"...highly recommended for a long look and listen", says Julie Mullins from The Absolute Sound about the pair of Gold 300s she reviewed. Impressed with both their style and sound, she calls the Gold 300 a "strikingly handsome speaker" with "stellar sonic capabilities". More great quotes from the review are below...

"Every detail of his gravelly diction came nearly as alive as if he were in the room. Fiddle and acoustic guitar, too, were reproduced with noteworthy naturalness."

"Soundstaging displayed reasonable depth and dimensionality, while bass lines resonated with respectable definition and without chuffing or noticeable overhang."

"...quite well balanced, pretty clean, and relatively neutral. Midrange proved to be a strong suit as well."

"...the Gold 300 was consistently balanced, rich, and full—and always sounded musical."

"...the Monitor Audio Gold 300 represents a special breed of loudspeaker that successfully combines style with substance..."

Gold 5.1 is a stunner!

October’s edition of Home Cinema Choice hosts a stunning review debut for the Gold 300AV 5.1 system. Awarding a Best Buy (rare at the price level) and five glorious stars in every category: Performance, Design, Features and Overall, the magazine’s home theatre doyen Adam Rayner concludes “So, the Gold 300AV costs plenty but offers enormity. It has the might and it has clarity. It can play sweet and linear at low levels or it can frighten the neighbours’ neighbours. The sheer bandwidth on tap is amazing and in truth, after admiring the design and finish and a little experimentation with the sub’s EQ settings, you’ll rapidly forget about the enclosures. The sound is immediately engaging, grasping you by the senses and dragging you into a movie with ease. With the Gold 300AV you get delicious performance in every direction. You could pay more and get less. Best buy, easy.”

"Exemplary" Gold 200 sets a new standard for TED Magazine!

The team at French tech publication TED Magazine have been left in awe of our Gold 200 floorstanding speaker!

"I knew the GX50 and their impressive bass performance very well, and I was expecting an even more percussive result with the Gold 200, I was not deceived!"

Remarking on the scale and quality of sound reproduction, they were left amazed by the Gold 200's capabilities as it tackled a selection of music and film genres with ease.

"the impact and the depth of the bass are of of a level of quality rarely heard on speakers with such a small foot print"

"The voice reproduction is incredibly precise and three dimensional, the piano, the saxophone and the percussion are fantastic. The panorama of the two Golds extends across the entire front wall of my room, even if there's only two. I have to open my eyes to place them physically."

Gold 200: Hi-Fi Choice Recommended - "A most impressive sound..."

Monitor Audio's Gold 200 is Hi-Fi Choice Recommended! David Price calls the Gold 200 "an extremely able loudspeaker with great depth of engineering", and says the Gold 200 makes great music thanks to clever use of materials.

"The cabinet is a work of art."

"I cue up the title track to be greeted with a most impressive sound — snappy, spacious, fast and open, I am also rather taken with the bass."

"...a wonderfully detailed midband and treble, which seamlessly blends in with its fairly light but well extended bass."

"The tweeter is a work of art and never sears or grates."

"...a lively and sparkling sound. The cymbals on 'Night Nurse' are sweet, smooth and delicate yet have a realistic bite; by contrast some similarly priced rivals can sound splashy and coarse."

"...a vivid, seat-of-the-sofa listening experience. I find myself really being pulled into this immersive track."

"It uses excellent drive units from bottom to top, and these integrate brilliantly to produce a realistic and enjoyable musical sound."

Gold 200 - "A British Victory"

As someone who has followed Monitor Audio for 30 years, Colin Smith of SoundStage! Access was eager to review the new Gold 200s. After listening to them, Smith gave much positive feedback, and even states, "Monitor Audio continues the great British tradition of producing solid loudspeakers, and I'm satisfied that the positive impression Monitor left me with so long ago is as valid as ever."

"...the quality of sound that most struck me was the amount of solid, deep, distortion-free bass produced by two pairs of 5.5" woofers in relatively small cabinets."

"It was satisfying to watch the woofers take the punishment I dished out without looking as if they wanted to pop free of the cabinets. The Gold 200 is one tough speaker."

"Their ribbon tweeters worked pure magic..."

"Pitting the Monitor Gold 200s' ribbon tweeters against the aluminum-dome tweeters of my Definitive Technology Mythos STs ($3998/pr) struck me as bringing a gun to a knife fight."

"Compared to the Gold 200s, my Mythos STs had a much smaller sound. This surprised the heck out of me — never before had I found my references' soundstage wanting."

"Bass definition was a British victory, the Gold 200s' punchy, advanced-design woofers doing a better job of keeping up with whatever bass I threw at them."

"Monitor Audio's Gold 200 is a well-made, attractively styled, thoroughly modern loudspeaker that would look and sound great in most settings."
