Floorstanding marvels promise musical magic

'Unashamedly luxurious with a high price to match, the PL200 nevertheless represents fine value given the immaculate finish and attention to detail...it delivers explicit, full-range sound in abundance and thus comes heartily commended.'

"For sheer insight, breath-taking dynamics, razor-sharp imaging, glorious stage depth and deep thunderous bass they excel, managing to blend these elements into a sound with astonishing presence in the room."

PL200 AV 5.1 system shows what high end audio is all about

"I reckon we have another reference grade set on our hands here. A 5.1 system of true class"

"...while they add fabulous detail and edge, as well as incredible staging and placement to the system, they still allow truly offensive levels to be raised. I love them to bits and found that they also have a terrific linear response, which means they work just as sweetly at low levels and with music."

"The impeccably finished PL200 offers a balanced performance from top to bottom...Through the PL200's I heard details of orchestration that simply had not been apparent before...When it came to transparency-the PL200 once again performed like a champ..."

Monitor Audio Platinum PL200 Loudspeakers

"...the PL200 speakers are refined and elegant looking, gorgeous in fact... The real wood Veneer finish options (there are two, Santos Rosewood and Ebony, as well as a separate, Piano Black option) are carefully lacquered and stunningly beautiful. When the front black metal grille is removed, luxurious black leather encompassing the drivers is revealed, of the sort normally found as upholstery in the finest automobiles."

"When I finally began my testing, I enjoyed what I heard right from the start: In less than a fortnight, the PL200s had transformed my listening space into a mini concert hall. Not only were all of my desired speaker improvements significantly addressed, but there was also an unexpected improvement in imaging, soundstage and dynamics, among other things. Wonderful."

"The staging and imaging were phenomenal, the extended bass was deep, tight and eloquent, and as for resolution/detail: About one minute into the recording, I could hear one of the musicians whispering, from the right channel, and saying things like ‘baby.’ Nothing like that came out of my system before. Tremendous."

"The piano I was now hearing from the PL200s sounded more full-bodied and rich than I had heard before on my system from piano in general."

"By digging for gold, I hit platinum with the Monitor Audio PL200 speakers. With such extraordinary performance, the PL200s are competitive with speakers that cost much more. And, the PL200s offer an additional unexpected plus: When the volume is low, the sound quality is still outstanding."

“The PL200 get my highest recommendation.”

"We are proud to award the Monitor Audio Platinum PL200 Loudspeakers an Audiophilia Star Component Award. Congratulations!"

"I recalled a classic quote from Oscar Wilde: ‘I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.’"

"The lifelike soundstage (Carnegie Hall!) revealed by the PL200s was exceptional."

"Wow! The PL200s could really handle high volume."
