MR Series 5.1 System Review

"The polished look of the black oak vinyl suits a variety of décor and is easy to clean."

"The MR1 bookshelf speaker is attractive in appearance and size. It has a solid feel because of its rigid cabinet bracing and it looks just as good, with the grills on or off, as its larger siblings."

"In Tori Amos’ ‘Past the Mission’ on the “Under the Pink” album, her vocal clarity was convincingly good – in fact much better than I would expect from a speaker at this price point."

"The MR4 speakers had no difficulties turning my room into a concert hall and delivered the appropriate reverberation and liveliness of the great musicians on stage."

"The MRW10 subwoofer blended very well with the mains and did not disappoint. Where the MR4 and MR1 rolled off, the MRW-10 took over seamlessly. The subwoofer, seemingly endless in output in moderate sized rooms, seemed to transform the MR4 into an entirely different speaker."

"I can honestly say that this system would beat most speakers that you’d find in a big box store, even those sold at significantly higher price points. These speakers are particularly well suited for movie and surround music discs, and come with a subwoofer that’s tight without much overhang or distortion."

"When good appearances and sound come together as one in an affordable package - everyone wins!"

it was Very compelling straight From the box....the mids,highs and bass extentions complement each other Very well....positioning is not even a problem too...so smoothly handles the highs with precision and timing...vocals are so clear and natural...highly recommended.

A lot has been said about the Monitor Audio speakers passing the 100 hours test. It is true. I have my MR4's hooked with a MR Center, on a Denon AVR 1100 receiver, set up in a smallish room. Call it "my first true Hi-Fi". After much fiddling with the speaker arrangement I ended up sacrificing the Surround Back channels in favour of bi-amping the MR4's. The result is a tight, very responsive and very natural sounding 5.1 system, as opposed to a bigger, somewhat murkier sounding 7.1. Thus I am getting the most natural sounding acoustic instruments playback I've ever heard. The Gold Dome tweeters are impressive, giving off the full highs without ever getting brash or annoying. The basses are clear, nimble and undistorted, blending seamlessly with the subwoofer, which hardly does any work. The overall playback is very balanced, exceptionally clear and without ever generating listening fatigue.

The MR series make for a very persuasive entry level speaker set to the Monitor Audio brand. It did make a fan out of me. From here the only way forward is a more powerful receiver and a pricier set of Monitor Audio speakers.

Truly magnificent for a small room place your self at a comfortable distance between the speakers and enjoy the ride.

I supplied this speakers with a high current (40 amp) and proper power handling amplifier within the recommended requirement (120 w). I went with some lossless audio from HD tracks and it sounds clear, mid and high frequencies and bass are well defined and profound.
