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

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.

AVTech Awards 2014/2015

 

Monitor Audio's Silver 8 is a wonderfully capable floorstander, delivering music with subtlety and sophistication and offering a cavernous, well-projected soundstage. The finely constructed cabinet sports a three-way design with a 100mm midrange driver...

Monitor Audio Silver 6AV12 Review

 

Ed Selley finds out if you need a Silver package to reproduce the sound of the silver screen?

Exciting yet refined sound ; Lovely build and finish ; Clever subwoofer software

Needs thoughtful matching ; Front speakers need to be some distance from walls ; Lacquer finish at a premium

There are many references on the forums to the ‘Wife Acceptance Factor’ and many of them are derogatory - as if owning equipment that doesn’t look like it was made by blind men in a shed is some sort of cop out. In reality, many of us have front rooms...

Great crisp sound

 

I've had the monitors for two weeks now. They were offered as part of a package. I listened to two other strongly recommended pairs of speakers at lower cost to reduce the overall purchase price but the Monitor Silvers were so obviously much better...

Great sound - just what I have been missing

 

Was settled on some Kef LS50's, then heard the Monitor Audio range and bought the standmount Silver's. It isnt just the sound that is great it is the size. They look amazing, and fit in anywhere.

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

Compact floor stander with big sound.

 

I purchased these speakers to pair with an Arcam solo music after a recommendation and audition at Richer Sounds. These are very compact speakers and fit into the room without being obtrusive. The build quality and finish is excellent. I set them up...

Excellent floorstanders

 

These were bought to replace some twenty year old Mission bookshelf speakers that had been great, but were in need of an update. The sound quality is an improvement. They are expressive and have plenty of depth. They are well built, slim units as well.
