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.

Already impressed and not yet fully run in!

Hi-fi meets musicality, but place them with care!

 

I bought these to replace my ageing Castle Tays when I realised they were holding back my new amp and cd player (Cambridge CXA 60 and CXC transport). These are beautifully built speakers, I went for the satin white and mounted on white painted Atacama...

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...
