With no fewer than 10 magazines reporting on new Platinum II, the feedback was excellent. See quotes from a variety of reviewers below.

"The surprise of CES for yours truly, the $29k Monitor Audio Platinum PL500 II."

- Jonathan Valin, The Absolute Sound
CES Report 2016 (PL500 II)

"...sonics were rich, nicely weighted, with excellent integration of the difficult-to-handle tweeter/midrange transition."

- Neil Gadar, The Absolute Sound

"Monitor Audio has indeed taken a major step toward the ever-elusive impression of 'live' sound."

- Robert Deutsch, Stereophile

"Speaking of ear-pleasing sound, the brand-new Monitor Audio Platinum PL500 II loudspeakers driven by Moon by SimAudio electronics exceeded sonic expectations, delivering high-end quality (think Raidho-like) beyond those well-known brands' respective price categories."

- Julie Mullins, The Absolute Sound

"PL 500 II - flagship of the new Platinum II range - came as a bit of a shock. However, in a world where seven-driver, three way designs featuring custom-made drive units in a cabinet that stands as tall as a man can cost the spendy side of $100,000, a loudspeaker that sounds this good commands respect. Monitor Audiois one of the UK industry's recent success stories, and judging by the PL500 II, that success will extend to the high end soon, too."

In addition to seeing the gorgeous new flagship range from Monitor Audio, we also showcased the new CP (Controlled Performance) Luxury In-Wall speakers - CP 260 / 460 IWX. These two CP models produce high performance, directional sound, synonymous with the sound quality of MA's big box speakers in a discreet, in-wall configuration.
