A bigger speaker that’s still sleek
Despite the Silver 100’s sleek good looks, this doesn't stop it from offering a powerful performance that can shame some much larger speakers. Making use a powerful 8" bass cone, the Silver 100's have a bass response that drops right down to 40Hz - easily matching or beating many floorstanding speakers. This means that, even in larger rooms, the Silver 100 is unfazed by the most powerful music.
The best drive units – improved
Featuring a completely new version of Monitor Audio’s iconic gold tweeter dome, the treble response is better than ever. Tuned for a crisp, low distortion sound, the top-end is sweeter than ever. The powerful 8” bass cone features distinctive RST (Rigid Surface Technology). Inspired by the Japanese art of Origami, the lightweight cone is made more rigid by the precise pattern of surface dimples. It makes the bass and mid-range natural-sounding and effortlessly flowing.
With technology from the Platinum series
Evolved from the reference quality Platinum models, the Silver 100 features DCF (Dynamic Coupling Filter). This replaces the usual, solid coupling of driver and voice coil with a flexible coupling. This helps damp any surplus energy, aiding the precison of sound. The perforated design also helps with cooling and pressure relief – giving enhanced efficiency.
Cabinets designed with help from the National Physical Laboratory
Designed with the aid of a precision laser scanner from NPL (National Physical Laboratory), the handcrafted cabinets are exceptionally well built. The scanner identified areas of cabinet resonance making the placement of the bracing pin-point accurate. Ultra-low cabinet distortion lets the drive units perform unimpeded, giving you the clearest and most natural sound going.
Slim-line and superbly finished to match your decor
Available in a wide range of premium real wood veneers and high gloss finishes, the Silver 100 looks every bit as good as it sounds. The new tweeter features a smart speckled finish for individual style. A slim-line design with rear-mounted port looks sleek and makes these speakers unobtrusive in your home. Magnetically attached grilles give a clean appearance when removed - ideal for showing off those hi-tech drive units.
A neat standmount speaker that has the power of a floorstander, the Silver 100 offers the best of both worlds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Eddie J from Nicely Built A great British speaker made in China (boo) not had them long enough to form a constructive opinion yet but they are nicely made with good deep bass, they replaced a pair of Q acoustic Concept 20's which were super for the money I paid, was not sure wether to go for these or the Kef LS 50's so I am glad I have an extended home audition option. Anyway time to stick another record on and try and loosen them up a bit more

Rated 4 out of 5 by benjaminkc from Good all rounders Have had the speakers for a couple of weeks now, so still running in really but first impressions are very positive. Bass is tight and well extended and they are capable of rendering a lot of detail from the music. Soundstage is precise and well-defined, although perhaps lacking in presence compared to some rivals. It's always swings and roundabouts though, I have auditioned speakers which place themselves more firmly in the room but which lack the definition of the 100's. Have only played at moderate volumes so far but it's clear they are capable of much more once run in. Overall, very pleased.
