If you love fabulous sound and design, get ready for a blissful experience. From each of eight new Silver Series models you’ll enjoy a unity of form and function that is as precise as it is compelling; the product of over forty years of speaker development, invested with our love for accurate audio, imbued with our belief in design perfection.
Super-slender and finished in a choice of Rosenut, Walnut, Natural Oak, and Black Oak real-wood veneers - and in devastatingly chic gloss black and white - the new Silver range is a beguiling force of nature and state-of-the-art loudspeaker design, made to re-energise entertainment in your home.
Features introduced by our prestigious Platinum and Gold series speakers have been enhanced, and recent innovations in driver engineering incorporated across an extended new range, which includes two stand mount models: Silver 1 and 2; three floor speakers: Silver 6, 8, 10; and dedicated centre, ‘FX’ surround and active subwoofer models. While Silver 1, 2, 6, centre and FX retain the form factor of their predecessors, the Silver 8 becomes a full three way design, and new to the Silver genre, the Silver 10 tower offers an up-scaled floor-standing format, featuring twin 8” bass drivers for a deeper more dynamic and consistent response in larger rooms.

Stereophile Praises Silver 8
"The Silver 8 is simply gorgeous, with a fit and finish that are probably impossible to achieve at the price without production in the Far East."
"Talk about hopes realized! From the second the system was powered up, the Silver 8s impressed me."
"I heard a welcome clarity in the midrange that gave all music a natural presence..."
"I could hear no fault with the Silver 8 with voices that span the crossover frequency."
"At low levels, the speaker's low end was in good balance, as suggested above, and the louder I pushed them, the more power and impact the Silver 8s delivered, without boom."
"...I found the Silver 8's bass remarkably solid and satisfying."
"There's little to say about the Silver 8's treble. Although it was detailed and extended, it was also smooth and untiring."
"Indeed, as with the best speakers — those costing far more than the Silver 8's $2,000/pair — the high frequencies, almost all overtones, were unobtrusively integral to the music, not distinct from the midrange fundamentals. I greatly appreciated this with recordings of both small and large ensembles."
"...the Silver 8s provided, from the CD, a precise spatial delineation, as in a good chamber music performance, coupled with remarkable impact and presence from each instrument."
"What a marvelous way to take flight to a world of beauty from the reality of a rainy day! While the harmonies may be complex, the perception is of effortless flow, even in two channels. One can succumb happily or listen analytically, but either way, one does so with the feeling that nothing separates one from the music and the musicians."
"...I can't say that listening in stereo via the Silver 8s was anything less than delightful."
"Their soundstage was deep and, if I wanted to focus on instrument placements instead of the music, there was a wealth of stable detail to appreciate."
“Regardless of track or changes in players, it all sounded more alive and engaging than I remembered.”
“…compared with my admittedly older and discontinued Paradigm Studio/60v3s ($1,699/pair when last available), the Silver 8s were strikingly cleaner in the lower midrange, more open in the upper midrange, and had a subtler treble.”
- Kalman Rubinson, Stereophile, January 2015
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."

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 6 Reviewer's Choice
“...this recording’s dramatic changes in tempo and dynamics were tracked wonderfully by the S6, whose clean, composed presentation
made it easy to follow the madness. What fun! This is exactly why anyone who loves music should own a pair of speakers like these.”
"The C-CAM drivers sounded quick and incisive, with a real crispness that made them seem fast; by this, I mean that they offered a tight, controlled sound that could start and stop on a dime."
"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."

Silver 10 5.1 System Review
“Overall, the fit and finish of the speakers is impeccable.”
“A good sub was clearly needed in my situation, and on music the W-12 did the trick. Drums were tight and punchy. Organ had impressive weight, if not quite the “count the cycles” grunt of some bigger subs. But there was never a sense of something missing; the bass was satisfying when present in the source and unobtrusive when not.”
“With the W-12 in tow, the Silver 10s demonstrated that they could compete with the big boys.”
“...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.”
“The all-important midrange was also a treat. There was no obvious coloration. Closely miked vocals sounded as immediate as they should; more distantly recorded performers were laid-back where they belong. Image depth (if present in the recording) was good, and lateral imaging precise."
“The W-12 is clearly an audiophile-quality subwoofer, and more than satisfying on music.”
“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.”
“You just might be as immensely impressed by what Monitor Audio has accomplished here as I was.”
