Speakers Per Pair
Quality compact speaker that’s versatile
The Monitor Audio Silver 50 is a small speaker that’s powerful enough to use in a wide variety of applications. Ideal for use in a quality stereo system in smaller rooms it also works effectively as an AV satellite speaker. Mounted on a high quality stand it offers a powerful, dynamic sound that might surprise for such a small speaker.
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 compact 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 50 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 50 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.
If space is tight but sound still matters, the Monitor Audio Silver 50 deserves your attention.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Law1 from As expected 5.1.2 in my bedroom which is 5m by 4m roughly, little space with rest of my items. Sold my zensor 3 as too big on the desk, (were great)need smaller but not worse speakers (FL/FR). Lets be logical £500 for small bookshelfs is not cheap in the real world. Im not an audiophile, I have bills! However spoke to louis who convinced me but said if I dont like them, return as store closed. They are not getting returned. Good solid sound, feels like whole front of the room has speakers (on 2 channel only) running these with Rel 1003 sub...enough said.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hanksy from Great sound and product quality Just downsized to our new home and my tall ( and 20 yrs old) monitor audio tall speakers were just too large for the room Excellent advice and service from staff and we received our new speakers within 3days. They are now nicely "run in" and the sound is perfect. 1st class advice and service from Richersounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mark86 from Happy! Bought the Monitor Audio Silver 50s to go with a Cambridge Audio CXA60. Wanted something good quality but physically small due to limited space, and these are fantastic. I listened to 4 other sets of speakers from tiny (Monitor Audio Radius 90s) to tower (Monitor Audio Bronze 5) and chose these. Very pleased with them.
