Home Theater Magazine
Shall We Be Speaker-Centric?
“Perhaps the folks who sell specialty home theater gear for a living should focus more on speakers like the Monitor Audio Gold GX: on their seductive curves, on their quality of construction, on the startling clarity of
their ribbon tweeters.”
“As impressive as the monitor and center are, it’s the sub that takes your breath away… LEO is as simple as sub room correction ever gets.”
“The movie activated the Monitor ribbon’s full and extended high-frequency response in a manner that was surprisingly smooth and sweet… Dispersion from the ribbon tweeters was excellent throughout.”
“...with holographic imaging and a lush, golden smoothness… This was a deeply pleasurable and enlightening experience.”
“The Monitor Audio GX Gold speakers are for the questing audiophile who’s looking to transcend the limitations of run-of-the-mill dome-based tweeters and low-tech woofers…”
"Special commendation goes to the GXW-15 subwoofer, one of the most cleverly designed I’ve ever reviewed… As compelling as the speakers are in their own right, the sub is even more so for its advanced design and features.”
Sound+Vision GX200 System Review
“Excellent build quality and equally impressive sound make the Gold GX a great choice for a multichannel system.”
“…outstanding definition and clarity in the highs, and a soundstage that extended well beyond the towers’ physical locations.”
“The Gold GX system’s crisp, finely layered presentation proved an especially good match for surround music. ..excellent tonal match between the front channels and GXFX surrounds made songs… sound wonderfully seamless. It was like being immersed in a pool of dense, ambient guitar and bass.”
“Drums and bass sounded clean and dynamic — I could clearly feel the wallop of kick drum in my chest. Monitor Golds managed to convey the dense spatial swirl of percussion instruments, keyboards, and background vocals while maintaining excellent clarity on guitars and Bryan Ferry’s frontand-
“…rain really sounded as if it was pouring down in dense sheets from the front of my room. During the chase that ensues, sound-effects pans as the
cars swirled and spun out had a convincingly full, near-360° trajectory. The GXW-15 sub was hardly a wallflower during this sequence. When a freight
train slams into the cab mid-chase, the resulting impact was bone-rattling."
“The GXC 150’s spot-on tonal match with the towers resulted in excellent front-stage clarity.”
“Monitor Audio’s Gold GX system is a well-crafted speaker package that’s capable of pinning you to the couch on movies and drenching your ears with detail on music.”
Canada HiFi Magazine
Monitor Audio Gold GX 5.1 Speaker System
"The Monitor Audio speakers delivered the richness of the doubled-up guitar strings with fullness in the mid frequencies and an amazing bell-like quality in the higher octaves. The depth and texture of this presentation was as close as I’ve heard from a real 12 string guitar."
"The ribbon tweeters reproduced the high frequencies of both instruments and voices with an amazing sizzle and a high level of detail. The tweeter presentation was airy, super clean and smoothly integrated with the mid frequencies, not once did I detect any harshness in the upper registers."
"The Gold GX series served up a perfectly balanced frequency range and one of the cleanest, luscious sounding mid-ranges I’ve had the pleasure of listening to in my home theatre."
"Whether I listened to music or watched movies, they never failed to engage me at the highest level. Voices and instruments sounded true-to-life and hence music was always full of emotion, regardless of choice of genre. On many occasions I felt like the performers were right in my room. During movies with good soundtracks (and visuals) the Gold GX series were capable of creating a total suspension of disbelief, making me feel like I was part of the action."
Home Cinema Choice
Setting the Gold Standard
Home Cinema Choice magazine gives their verdict on the Gold GX Series with an all round 5 star approval across the board.
In the latest January 2012 issue of Home Cinema Choice magazine our Gold GX series was reviewed, tried and tested for performance, design and features and then rewarded with a fantastic overall review of 5/5 stars across the categories.
Here's a snippet taken from the full review "Running through Pirates...had me scribbling all sorts of notes ('huge, rich, foundation-shifting bass with power and grip'; 'nil flex on the 15in piston'; 'Exciting, musical and able to create a sense of scale'), but all you need to know is that I loved this system with a passion."
