Silver 6

December 2013

Their Energy, Detail and Zing Will Wow You

FOR: Crisply attacking, straight-edged sound; superb driver integration; beautifully made.

"The new Silver range is a thorough reworking of the series it replaces."

"The Silver 6s immediately impress as compact, handsome and sturdy speakers... there's no arguing with the luxuriousness of these speakers' build."

"After a good 72 hours of initial use under their belts they deliver a vigorous, up-and-at-'em sound with a level of enthusiasm that borders on the relentless."

"...there's nothing to touch them where the entry into individual notes is concerned - a rare quality at any price. It makes for a well defined presentation too, with even pedestrian recordings given tangible momentum."

"Integration between the drivers, though, is absolutely first-rate. At the bottom of the frequency range the Silver 6s delve pretty deep and hit hard."

"No matter the type, quality or source of the recording offered, the Monitor Audio Silver 6s sink their teeth in and give it a damn good shaking. Nothing can touch them for crispness."

Silver 6 PRODUCT OF THE YEAR!

The Silver 6 speaker celebrates great praise after a fantastic review, courtesy of Philip Beaudette from SoundStage Access. The Silver 6 not only received a SoundStage 'Reviewer's Choice' Award, but is also honored with the 2014 PRODUCT OF THE YEAR AWARD!

"Based on what I heard, I'd say that the bar for what one can expect from a speaker costing less than $2,000/pair has been raised."

“No other compact music system that I am aware of could capture the scale of this music so effortlessly, or so energize a listening room, as did these in mine.”

"Using a word like crisp to describe a speaker’s sound might seem to imply that that sound was bright. The S6 was not bright. The superb level of detail it uncovered was not the result of tipping up the high frequencies to draw attention to them in a way that one might mistakenly perceive as enhanced detail. Rather, it was the combination of several factors, including their solidly constructed cabinets and high-quality drivers, that gave the S6s excellent clarity and allowed them to possess such magnificent resolution."

"Rather than belch out loose, woolly bass in an effort to dig down a few more hertz, their low-end output fell off fairly quickly, leaving behind punchy, agile bass. Despite being of only modest size, they were able to create a big sound with more than enough power to energize my room. I never felt the need for a subwoofer or bigger speakers."

"...the drums sounded quick and incisive, propelling the track forward with a great sense of pace, rhythm, and timing."

"...the Silver 6 costs just one-third of the Argon3L’s price. That’s what makes the Monitor remarkable. While they aren’t sonically identical, both should appeal to listeners who value resolution, imaging, and transparency, and who also want a speaker that can rock out and sound effortless while doing so. That the Silver 6 did this for a fraction of the Argon3L’s price while coming very close to the Amphion’s level of performance I found incredible, and it makes the Monitor an amazing value."

"After living with them for a while, I can say that this British speaker is the perfect solution for someone who cares about good sound...”

High tech features make room-friendly 6AV12 system system "Unfailingly Enjoyable"

New Silver’s accomplished tech has impressed AVForums’ Ed Selley. Ed has lived with many larger systems, but what sets the 6AV12 apart even from more expensive rivals is the way it has weaved specialised features with a smaller footprint to deliver truly cinematic replay from a room-friendly design. Awarding a coveted ‘recommended’ badge, he concludes that

“…while it looks excellent, this is a package that delivers sonically too. The performance is exciting but easy to live with and the dedicated surround speakers and clever subwoofer setup software give these speakers a cinematic performance that is unfailingly enjoyable. If you want a speaker package that delivers on sound and aesthetics, this is a great place to start looking”.
