Canada Hi-Fi GX200 Review

"The GX200 is a very handsome floor standing speaker with a small enough footprint that it will fit into most listening environments. Monitor Audio says that this makes the speakers placement friendly, allowing them to be positioned relatively close to a wall.”

“The fit and finish appeared to be perfect.”

“The midrange was rich and neutral, as the bass line played cheerfully with good depth and articulation. The GX200’s offered excellent stereo imaging and effortless motion as the song demanded the ringing of the strings to flow between the channels.”

“I quickly realized just how much high frequency information these speakers were able to extract from the music. I literally heard high frequency components that I haven’t heard before. The C-CAM ribbon tweeter played with amazing speed and delivered awesome resolution."

“The GX200 reproduced the sound of the various guitars used throughout the album with extraordinary realism - I felt like I was playing guitar myself.”

“The Monitor Audio GX200 delivered an undeniably enjoyable, musically passionate performance during its stay in my home. I took it through the paces with all kinds of music, ranging from classical to hard rock and it always pleased me with its sound. Those who enjoy listening to jazz and classical should find this speaker particularly attractive since it’ll extract the finest details from high frequencies and provide a great three dimensional soundstage. The GX200 is indeed a great sounding speaker and offers excellent value at its price point.”

Sound+Vision GX200 System Review

“Excellent build quality and equally impressive sound make the Gold GX a great choice for a multichannel system.”

“…outstanding definition and clarity in the highs, and a soundstage that extended well beyond the towers’ physical locations.”

“The Gold GX system’s crisp, finely layered presentation proved an especially good match for surround music. ..excellent tonal match between the front channels and GXFX surrounds made songs… sound wonderfully seamless. It was like being immersed in a pool of dense, ambient guitar and bass.”

“Drums and bass sounded clean and dynamic — I could clearly feel the wallop of kick drum in my chest. Monitor Golds managed to convey the dense spatial swirl of percussion instruments, keyboards, and background vocals while maintaining excellent clarity on guitars and Bryan Ferry’s frontand-
center vocals.”

“…rain really sounded as if it was pouring down in dense sheets from the front of my room. During the chase that ensues, sound-effects pans as the
cars swirled and spun out had a convincingly full, near-360° trajectory. The GXW-15 sub was hardly a wallflower during this sequence. When a freight
train slams into the cab mid-chase, the resulting impact was bone-rattling."

“The GXC 150’s spot-on tonal match with the towers resulted in excellent front-stage clarity.”

“Monitor Audio’s Gold GX system is a well-crafted speaker package that’s capable of pinning you to the couch on movies and drenching your ears with detail on music.”

Monitor Audio Gold GX 5.1 Speaker System

"The Monitor Audio speakers delivered the richness of the doubled-up guitar strings with fullness in the mid frequencies and an amazing bell-like quality in the higher octaves. The depth and texture of this presentation was as close as I’ve heard from a real 12 string guitar."

"The ribbon tweeters reproduced the high frequencies of both instruments and voices with an amazing sizzle and a high level of detail. The tweeter presentation was airy, super clean and smoothly integrated with the mid frequencies, not once did I detect any harshness in the upper registers."

"The Gold GX series served up a perfectly balanced frequency range and one of the cleanest, luscious sounding mid-ranges I’ve had the pleasure of listening to in my home theatre."

"Whether I listened to music or watched movies, they never failed to engage me at the highest level. Voices and instruments sounded true-to-life and hence music was always full of emotion, regardless of choice of genre. On many occasions I felt like the performers were right in my room. During movies with good soundtracks (and visuals) the Gold GX series were capable of creating a total suspension of disbelief, making me feel like I was part of the action."

Hi-Fi News GX200 review

The "Home of Real Hi-Fi" gives an in-depth analysis of Monitor Audio's GX200 floorstanding speaker:

"The Patricia Barber recording sounded wonderfully three-dimensional, and with Reference Recordings' high resolution recording of the Tchaikovsky piece the GX200s came alive, the fine detail of percussion in the orchestra delivered with electrostatic-like transparency".

Setting the Gold Standard

Home Cinema Choice magazine gives their verdict on the Gold GX Series with an all round 5 star approval across the board.

In the latest January 2012 issue of Home Cinema Choice magazine our Gold GX series was reviewed, tried and tested for performance, design and features and then rewarded with a fantastic overall review of 5/5 stars across the categories.

Here's a snippet taken from the full review "Running through Pirates...had me scribbling all sorts of notes ('huge, rich, foundation-shifting bass with power and grip'; 'nil flex on the 15in piston'; 'Exciting, musical and able to create a sense of scale'), but all you need to know is that I loved this system with a passion."

GX200

March 2016

The Monitor Audio Gold GX 200 is for sure one of the best values in the price range up to 7000 $ or even more. It's one of the most elegant designs of today's loudspeakers and beautifully veneered. Bass performance is simply one of the best I've ever experienced, both tight and remarkably deep. The medium spectrum ist very open and packed with details. Just neutral at its best. Highs are in the same league, very informative and sparkling - but not aggressive (unless you use very bad recordings). Summed up, you get a precise, very entertaining sound that is both "fast" and natural, offering an almost "live" caracter. If there's a "but", you could name the soundstage, that is more laterally present than very deep. Goes for all kinds of music. For example, a revelation for techno sound, but also ......... classic ! A real allrounder ! The good news is that the successor model (same size), the new Gold 200 is yet more homogeneous, with yet increased precision and improved imaging (= deeper soundstage, now perfect). Just avoid harsh and forward sounding equipment and cables, then you can't go wrong. Should be neutral or slightly warm stuff and precise in any case. And allow a long running-in time !

I have had the GX200s for coming up to two years. They are fed by four monobloc cyrus x200 power amps. Bi wired and bi amped.I must admit, after around a week of owning them, i felt that i had made an expensive mistake. These speakers MUST have a long running in period. I have found that as time has gone on, they are now sounding absolutely superb. They are very critical of poor recordings. Magazine reviews dont do these speakers jusice, because of the lack of running in. I honestly dont think that i could get speakers to match these at the price and without having to spend at least £1000 more.

When i first met MA it was love at first sight. I have had the complete RX series, but the upgrade virus has hit me.

Now i own a GXC150 and GX200 both in High gloss white!! Very Very nice, i also have spare black grilles orded with it, looks ever more expensive!!

The sound is suberB with an even greater B...!!! Every time people say what a great sound they give, What kind of brand is that? Then i say: "Monitor Audio :) !!"
Now only have to upgrade my RXFX and my RXW-12..it is a matter of time though!

Love Monitor Audio, it's the best you can have.

February 2013

Spent a few weeks auditioning speakers around the £2k price bracket, PMC 23s were the initial choice, Dali Mentor 5s were more exiting than the PMCs but sounded too harsh in places (may have been the source) then I heard the GX200s set up on similar kit to mine, they had the excitement but not too bright. Although I originally wondered if I had made a big mistake when I first set therm up at home, and I have had to try various different speaker positions, and had plenty of "Marmite" moments with these speakers, I have learnt a lot about my room dynamics in the process, but now with the GXs in the right position I am enjoying my music like never before, the TV is feeling unloved, and i know I made the right choice.
My only wish is I did not have to have them protruding out into the room so much to get the required distance from the rear wall, good job I am not married, but they still look fantastic in black.
Now I am on a drive to upgrade source kit to get even more out of the GXs.

Just spent a couple of days auditioning several speakers around the £2k price mark. I was intending on buying either PMC, Spendor or B&W, then out of nowhere the GX200 came along. They were the most impressive of all of them. I liked the PMC Twenty 23 initially, but in comparison, they sound quite ordinary. The only problem with these speakers is that they are so detailed that they have rendered lots of my music unlistenable - the poor recordings are so obvious. Time to source some better quality stuff!

Very, very happy with my GX200. Highs are so pure and clear but bass is also very strong and life-like. Very impressed that it keeps its high quality sound also at very high volume levels; can sit outside on the balcony and still have hifi quality music experiences in nature.

And they are as exquisite and beautiful in the white high-gloss lacquer. :)
