Monitor Audio Silver 1 Bookshelf Loudspeaker Review

 

Monitor Audio's Silver 1 is a gorgeously crafted bookshelf speaker with mostly excellent engineering, surprisingly powerful bass, and world-class treble.

Build and finish quality ; Outstanding treble ; Bass quality and quantity (for the size) ; Value for money ; Smooth upper midrange dispersion ; Sonically benign grille

Smooth upper midrange dispersion ; Sonically benign grille

THE MONITOR AUDIO SILVER 1 Offers a Beautiful Cabinet and Good Sound.

Monitor Audio Silver 100 review

 

More of the same from Monitor Audio's Silver range, and that's a good thing.

Clear and well-organised presentation ; Bold, punchy, well-balanced sound ; Impressive sense of timing and dynamics ; Superbly easy listen

Nothing of note

It’s more of the same from Monitor Audio’s latest Silver range, and it simply leaves us wanting to test the next pair

Monitor Audio Silver 1

 

Gorgeous-looking – and sounding – speakers that can nevertheless be a bit fussy

Seriously deep bass ; Strong dynamics ; Clarity ; Gorgeous build

Fussy with positioning ; A little too analytical ; Bass can be a bit unwieldy

So they can be a little picky about their environment, and there are better all-rounders for the money.

Fab n' Groovy . . . Monitor Audio Silver 100

 

An excellant, good value for money deal. Despite a few missing frequencies on my hearing, these more than compensate on all the others. Been after something of this quality for years. With a Denon DM41 > amazing . . . might have to buy another one ;o)

Great sound

 

I bought these speakers a couple of weeks ago and, although attached to an AV receiver as part of a second system, make listening to music a pleasure now.

V Good Sound

 

Still really in a test stage, but the two speakers are performing very well. They are considerably smaller that the ones they replaced, and I had some discussion with my wife about whether and what type of stand to mount them on. £80 is a sizable sum...
