Monitor Audio Silver 100 (Natural Oak)
Speakers Per Pair
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 3 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great speakers but badly let down by packaging Bought these speakers a few days from Richer Sounds - VERY helpful advice helped get us the right speakers. Now running them in (as recommended) at low to medium volume and very pleased with the way it is all going. BUT ....Come on, Monitor! That much Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) in the box! Are you for real? This approach was being phased out in the 1990s and many manufacturers have very good and economically recyclable packaging approaches. EPS is simply terrible (I should know - I was responsible for recycling 200 tonnes per annum of it 30 years ago and it is an absolute pig to handle and process - so light and bulky). I probably would not have bought this myself had I realised. Signicant issue if we wanted to consider buying your speakers again. If I were Richer Sounds I would give you an ultimatum: STOP USING EPS by the end of 2021 or - if you don't - we won't stock your products until you find a more sustainable alternative.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AJGK78 from Great quality and sound Brought these after a long discussion with the staff at Richer sound. After buying other products with the support of Richer sound these were a perfect match to my system. The depth of sound is better then ever expected and the range is very versatile. Using them as rear surround speakers and also fo music, they are brilliant. Can recommend monitor audio silver range to anyone for versitilty and quality of sound. More they are played the better they get. The build is perfect and match current furniture. Will be expanding the system with more from the range. Recommend talking to staff at Richer sounds as so knowledgeable of there range. Helped me and definitely made the right choice and they did not push to get the most money out of me. Happy to give you the time you need and nothing is a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Les K from Very Speedy After a past bad experience of buying from the Edinburgh Branch, I reluctantly decided to buy on-line. The process was painless, although communication was vague. I was really concerned when I was informed that the shipping company was DPD. BUT, I was very pleased that my order was delivered very quickly. Unfortunately, due to a small problem with a virus (not mine), my stereo is in one location, and my new speakers are in another, so I haven't been able to link the two together. But I just can't wait. The MA Silver 100's look excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Debagio from Monitor Audio Silver 100 - Superb speakers Having owned this pair of speakers for two weeks now, I completely understand where the numerous 5-star reviews came from. Control is outstanding for the price, the bottom end, mid-range and top gel together effortlessly and rhythms are handled with precision. Good soundstage too. I have my speakers paired with Audiolab 6000a and Cambridge Audio CXN V2 and it's a wonderful combination. Tip: Take time with positioning. The Silver 100s are surprisingly forgiving with placement but a little experimentation will pay dividends. Also, they do take a while to run in (50-70 hours, according to Monitor Audio) but give them a week or two and they'll sing. I'd have no hesitation in recommending this set of speakers. A big step up from the Bronze range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by furnitureman from Like a new dog Bought these to replace my large floorstanders MS908L. Had stands so filled them with sand and away we went. Like a new dog, speakers took some time to get used to and settle in! Am still burning them in, but they are already incredible, low lows and high highs and the midrange ain't bad either! I thought I would have to take a hit on sound going from my floorstanders to standmounts, but no, They are even better. The wife is happy (ish) and I am very pleased with the quality. FYI I am running a Fluance record deck and Denon Pma800 amp and Denon dcd800 cd. Speakers are bi wired. Very happy with overall sound!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Corchito42 from All the other 5 star reviews are correct Great speakers, so the many 5 star reviews are absolutely correct. Even with the measurements I was surprised at how big they turned out to be. However as there are a wide range of finishes available, it's easy to find one that blends in with your decor, so they're not too obtrusive.
