Punchy bass. A great high and mid-range response. Beautifully crafted looks. It’s not hard to say what makes the Silver 500 7G special, but it is hard to appreciate just what a difference those things make – until, that is, you listen for yourself.
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.
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.
