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.

Bookshelf speaker with floorstander performance


First let me say how brilliant the team at Richer Sounds Swiss Cottage were. They were incredibly helpful, with useful advice. We listened to many different speakers in the shop and they helped me set up a try-out at home before I finally decided on...

Best speakers in their price range


Auditioned these speakers paired with the Cambridge audio CXA80 and CXC and wow! The level of detail is truly superb. They give out a rich, velvety sound and blew the Dali Zensors out of the water. There is simply no comparison. I agree with a previous...

Check dimensions!!


Beautiful speakers have no doubt the sound is also exquisite BUT these are big beasts and were too large to fit in my space. Customer services on return were fantastic! Very good value when bought as part of a package.

Great Sound


Originally was looking at floor stand speakers, Monitor Audio Bronze 6 or the Silver 200. Devon at the Leicester branch did a great demo for me and I decided on these as they are a bit less intrusive. The sound is superb and is improving as they are...

Cracking speakers


Bought these after returning to hifi after too many years without great equipment. On first demo, it was clear they produced excellent response (coupled with CA Topaz SR30)... key point for me was performance vs size... REALLY GREAT!

Superb Speakers


Upgrade from Mordaunt Short book shelf, difference is remarkable, linked to an Onkyo amp and matched with the 350 center channel, also went for a pair of ELAC atmos and the Elac E12F, my room lay out doesn't allow for big rear speakers as my viewing...
