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."
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."
"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's replaced a pair of Silver 10's I bought in April of this year. Yes, I know very quick upgrade. I was very content with my Silver's till I happen to hear the Gold's recently and it was an audio REVELATION !! A cathartic experience of sorts. Everything I enjoyed about the Silver's was there in even greater abundance with the 200's except the bass which is better defined and more taught in the Gold's. Top to bottom the 200's are exactly what I have been searching for in over 20 years of audio madness. The only way these are leaving my home is if MA improves on them in a significant way which I don't see how they can but this company seems to be able to pull the rabbit out of the proverbial magic hat with ease . Thank you MA !!
By far the best quality for their price money can buy!
If you are serious about buying one of the best speakers in its price range then look no further than Monitor Audio's Gold Series, specifically the 200 or 300. I am a long time buyer of Monitor Audio speakers-now on my 3rd pair. I recently, upgraded to the MA Gold 200s from the Silver 10s. While the Silver 10s are a excellent speaker, the Gold 200s are a solid step up in quality and performance. The sound is beyond amazing and the fit and finish is the best that I have seen. I looked at other speakers costing several thousand dollars more. But by spending upwards of $7K to $8K, would I get that much more performance? Doubtful. MA has been in business for years and know how to make great sounding speakers. Most listeners choose the Golds vs other brands when conducting an audition. Once you hear them, you will want them. ..that I am sure of.
