Home Theater Hi-Fi Praises Silver 1

Jay Haider (Secrets of Home Theater & High Fidelity) recently reviewed a pair of Silver 1 bookshelf speakers, and evidently was quite impressed, stating that the speakers have beautiful finish and construction, fantastic treble and surprisingly potent bass.

"...the Monitor Audio Silver 1 is an excellent speaker. It's fit and finish rivals or exceeds speakers its size two price classes up."

"...a gorgeously crafted bookshelf speaker with mostly excellent engineering, surprisingly powerful bass, and world-class treble."

"The Silver 1's crossover shows engineering excellence both heard and measured, and the tweeter is a marvel."

"Monitor Audio's Silver 1 does an awful lot right, looks beautiful, and is worth a close listen."
