Silver 10 5.1 System Review

“Monitor’s impressive Silver series is a triumph, a treat to hear, and well worth seeking out for a serious audition.”

“Overall, the fit and finish of the speakers is impeccable.”

“With the W-12 in tow, the Silver 10s demonstrated that they could compete with the big boys.”

“The W-12 is clearly an audiophile-quality subwoofer, and more than satisfying on music.”

“...on well-recorded material (both music and movies—I never felt the need for the Integra’s THX Re-Eq on the latter), their sound was open and detailed, with an appealingly real sparkle and liveliness.”

“In conveying the movie’s extreme dynamics, natural dialogue, precise scene-to-scene ambience, and (most notably) astonishing score, the Silvers left nothing on the table."

“Even on quieter films, the Silvers left a positive vibe. Anonymous, a vastly underrated movie from 2011, consists mainly of clean dialogue punctuated by a sweet score that sneaks up on you. On the Silvers, it reminded me once again that a good surround system isn’t just for action.”

"Honestly, I couldn’t have wished for more from any system.”

Diapson: Silver 2 Review

"The Silver 2 seduces, it is homogeneous and well balanced on the spectral level."

"Even while listening to a symphonic orchestra, you never feel frustrated regarding the sound level."

"The air circulates freely between the instruments. The timbres are rich and dense."

"The dynamic opulence and stability conclude this very beautiful speaker."

Silver 2: 5-Star Review and "Recommended" Award

"...blessed with plenty of clarity and immediacy plus weight and depth, and its very own distinctive, highly detailed sound."

"...the Monitor Audio can deliver all the power it needs, but does so in a more relaxed and less forced manner than many similarly priced rivals

"...a more gutsy yet relaxed presentation that's very good at carrying dynamic accents that most others miss."

"Isaac Hayes' 'Life's Mood' is a joy. Percussion is better accented than most, giving a superior sense of rhythmic flow, and the crashing keyboard cadences push out in a more arresting and explicit way."

"...at the same time, the tonal purity is such that the piano sound is beautifully carried. Behind this, violins soar in a wonderfully accurate and expressive way, and the speakers catch the drama of this great song."

"The Silver 2 pushes out a wider soundstage than its rivals."

"You can really hear inside and drill down into the low-level detail, in a way that many rivals simply don't allow."

"The Smiths' 'Girl Afraid' is wonderfully open and detailed, but still carries the emotion within the song."

"Snare drums sound tight, while the treble is delicate and smooth; the tweeter reveals real delicacy that makes rivals seem rather ragged in comparison."
