Monitor Audio Silver 6AV12


As speaker systems go, Monitor Audio's Silver 6AV12 is a shining example

Stunning build quality and styling ; Immersive soundstage and flawless tonal consistency ; Lucid detail and well-integrated bass

Smooth, easy tone better suited to music ; Expensive ; High-gloss finishes cost extra

Monitor Audio Silver 6AV12


This is a top-notch surround package for the money. It's a worthy alternative to the award-winning KEF R100 5.1

Well matched character between the different speakers ; Seamless integration with the subwoofer ; Excellent surround speakers ; Lots of insight and precision ; Terrific build and finish

You’ll need quite a lot of space for the floorstanding fronts and centre ; A little care in matching is required

Overall, this Silver 6AV12 is a hugely capable package.

Top quality sound.


I bought these about two weeks ago to replace a pair of 20 year old mission 752 freedom floor standers. First use they sounded poor but after 30+ hours they open up with a silky treble, nice mid range and warm but controlled bass.The sound stage is...

Excellent speakers from Monitor Audio


Having moved to a house with a larger lounge, my old Monitor Audio Silver bookshelf speakers had become a little lost in the larger space. After a lot of research and some very helpful advice from Richer Sounds, I opted for the Monitor Audio Silver 200...

Monitor Audio Silver 200 - Black Oak


I was looking for a pair of quality compact floorstanding speakers for my study and was trying to find a discounted pair of the previous MA Silver 6 model. However, RS Exeter had an open box pair of these at a great price and I am delighted with them....
