A beautifully crafted bookshelf speaker that’s a leap beyond the ordinary. Featuring Rigid Surface Technology and a new tweeter design, it’s built to eliminate distortion wherever possible. So even when you push it to the limit, it remains clear and controlled.
Imagine a bookshelf speaker that gives you richer sound and deeper bass than your old floorstander. That’s what the Monitor Audio Silver 100 is capable of. On the outside, a choice of real-wood veneers lets you achieve the perfect look. Inside, a plethora of technologies come together, including metal coned drivers with Rigid Surface Technology, a new tweeter design and a new crossover system that intelligently combines the tweeter and bass driver. If all that just sounds like noise to you, don’t worry. You’ll hear the difference the moment you press play.
Now in its 7th generation, the Monitor Audio Silver Series embodies our decades of audio expertise. Thanks to a choice of real-wood veneers or beautifully painted and finished cabinets, these speakers have a refined, understated look – the perfect counterpoint to their bold, powerful sound. And with class-leading performance through our latest metal coned drivers with Rigid Surface Technology II, the music you love is more precise, with less distortion than ever. So even with the volume pumped right up, the sound you hear couldn’t be clearer.

All in all, I have come away hugely impressed with Monitor Audio's new Silver 100 and could happily live with a pair. It delivers an easy, clean and refined sound that's largely tonally natural, clear, and very detailed. Bass is surprisingly full and deep, given the small size of the enclosure, and the speaker can play remarkably loudly without sounding muddy or congested. So what's not to like? more...
