The perfect blend of sound and style
Compact and unobtrusive but full of energy, the Monitor Audio MASS 5.1 is the ideal home cinema speaker package for smaller rooms and for when you want quality cinema sound without larger boxes taking over your space.
Small speakers with a big heart
Compact and easy to place, the MASS 5.1 speakers don’t compromise on sound quality. The two-way design features a separate, soft dome, tweeter for a bright and detailed top end – ideal for hearing every subtle detail from your favourite movie or music. Monitor Audio’s MMP II (Metal Matrix Polymer) cones deliver exceptional accuracy for clear speech and pinpoint special effects. The high rigidity cabinets reduce distortion for dynamic sound at higher levels – keeping you on the edge of your seat during tense movie moments.
Perfectly paired and powerful, the matching subwoofer delivers bass you can feel. Optimised to match the satellite speakers, the sub cuts in at just the right moment to power the bass without clouding the mid-range. Using an 8 inch MMP II driver, the sub delivers a taut, powerful bass to drive any movie soundtrack or music with conviction.
Unique, custom-weave cloth bookends the satellite speakers and fronts the sub, for a soft, harmonious style. The satellite speakers are very easy to place and can also be mounted to optional MASM wall mount or floor stands.
Choice of finishes
Thanks to a choice of colours, the smooth good looks blend effortlessly with your décor. Choose between midnight or mist finishes for a darker or lighter hue.
Keep your cinema sound standards high without compromising your living room’s style, with the perfectly balanced Monitor Audio MASS 5.1.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Uzzy46 from Great entry level system. Looks very smart I have been using these speakers for a year now paired with a Sony Str-dn1080 AV unit. This is my first surround sound system and I'm quite pleased with the performance. The speakers are good for watching movies where there's a lot of on screen action but as they're quite small they don't generate the biggest sound. They're best suited for smaller rooms. I sometimes find the centre channel a bit lacking and dialogue isn't always that clear unless you have the volume cracked up quite high. With the speakers being quite small the bass is handled entirely by the sub. This works OK but in a bigger room you would want speakers with more substantial drivers. The best thing about the system is that the speakers look awesome and fit in very well with my room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pedal Bin from Small But Perfectly Formed! I was surprised by the lack of reviews for the MASS 5.1 Gen 2 surround system system. In fact the lack of reviews was the initial reason I had not considered them. I was after a 5.1 system for a smaller room and I had gone into Richer Sounds, Reading to audition the Wharfedale DX2 which sounded great. However, after 30-40 minutes or so the team suggested that with my taste in music I might like to try the MASS 5.1. A quick change over of speakers and off I went again. I was thoroughly impressed with these speakers. I was not expecting an excellent sound from such small speakers. There is not a lot to choose between these and the Wharfedale DX2 to my ears, but the MASS 5.1 sounded slight 'warmer' and little less 'harsh' that the DX2 (without trying to sound too full of What Hi-Fi hyperbole). To my ears the MASS 5.1 sounded better with music than the DX2 but there was not a lot in it, whereas the DX2 had the edge with the movies. Bizarrely the only review I did find criticises the MASS 5.1 for not being great with music. I could not disagree more. These speakers are a massive improvement over my old all in one Blu Ray / surround sound system. They are more than powerful enough for the loft conversion I have my system set up in. So then Plus points: * Great sounding speakers. * Small satellite speakers can be placed almost any where. * Solid well made speakers. Front and back covers simply clip off. Negative: * The sub woofer is on the larger size, bigger than the one that came with DX2 system * If you want to wall mount the speakers you will need the brackets at £18 each * If you are using banana plugs you will need to remove the back of the speakers (they just clip off) as the back will not fit over the plugs. Overall if your budget allows I would go for the MASS 5.1 over the DX2. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by R1ckmister from Great system for entry level Previously stuck to Bose 5.1 systems however the prices these days are eye watering, took my first foray into the audiophile world with these speakers paired with a Onkyo TXRZ730 amp and ..... WOW! These have blown any system I previously owned away. Installation was simple too, I paired these with the Monitor Audio wall mounts. Still experimenting with the crossover effects etc (and I’m sure getting it wrong as I’m new to in-depth audio, however even with the experimenting the soundstage is great!) Richer sounds too were a first and will now be my sole tech shop when it comes to AV equipment, putting together a package deal without needing to haggle I was shocked yet pleased, then the after sales care as I was nervous ditching “simple” systems, demoing the system when I just randomly turned up too without an appointment (although I think I was just lucky on that day) .... they have been faultless. Sound quality from a “compact” system - 5/5 Ease of use - 4/5 (just due to my personal experiences of plug and play, not needing to tweak dials or settings) Value - 5/5 (personal preference I suppose but to sound better than systems I spent over £2K on before 100% value for money)
