Often we find that our clients will consider purchasing hifi components seperately, based on reviews while being unaware of how they will sound together. Unless you're blessed with working in a hi-fi store, it's often hard to know what combinations will work well together.
As we demonstrate hundreds of systems every year, we find certain combinations that stand out and provide the wow factor giving value for money that's greater than the sum of the individual components.
The Silver 500 Music System is a combination of performance and price, that's very difficult to go past. Roksan are now a part of Monitor Audio and it's a match made in audio heaven. It makes sense that having the R&D teams working so closely would produce such well matched equipment and that's certainly the case here.
Monitor Audio Silver 500 7G floorstanding speakers
There are plenty of technical innovations in the Silver 500 7G. Rigid Surface Technology II that keeps the sound perfectly clear and controlled even at high volume. A crossover system that balances output from the tweeter and bass driver as needed. A consistent and smooth frequency response that sounds great with all genres of music. We could go on, but you only really need to hear one thing: the first note of your favourite song played on a pair of Silver 500 7G speakers. Then you’ll understand why it’s everything the hardened audiophile could want, and everything the casual listener could need.
To ensure you extract maximum performance from these already outstanding products, we've also included a pair of 2 metre Kimber 4TC speaker cables. A very high quality braided speaker cable that will ensure a solid connection between amp and speakers.
The Silver 500 7G speakers incorporate some of our most advanced engineering yet, for sound that will leave you speechless. New grilles, driver trims and feet give an even more refined look, only accentuated by four different choices of wood veneer, including Natural Walnut, Ash, Black Oak, and Satin White.
