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.

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....
