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 Kamlesh420 from Amazing sounding and looking speaker very happy Bought these for my home cinema, as I replaced pair of B&W C1's (which served me well for 10 years). Out of the box first impression very well packed. Once covers and packaging removed you are greeted with a beautiful tall handsome looking speakers. Connected to Yamaha RX A3080. Please note these speakers will need some running in so do not expect them to sound amazing at start. after some 20 hours of running in the magic begins. Starting with top end - sound so clean and open, Mids punchy and puts it in-line with the highs giving it a perfect balance. Lows are controlled and tonal. Overall sounds very wide and clean. Nice balance sound. Sound stage is nice and open putting the object of the movie in the right pace. Very happy with these speakers. The finishing of the speakers feels very well made and sturdy. Staff at richer sounds - as always gave great advice and been on point with the service - thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dave0705 from Stunning speakers for the size I have had these speakers for a couple of months now and have to say,they are absolutely fantastic. I use them as front speakers on my home cinema setup and they replaced some radius 90s that I had and I have to say that the difference between the two is night and day. These speakers deliver a brilliant mid range which was so missing from my previous ones and I am now getting the sound I have wanted for years and have no complaints whatsoever. The speakers themselves are relatively compact and you would honestly think that they were twice the size with the sound they deliver. They are great with music offering a great sound from top to bottom of the range, add my other speakers in my setup and they deliver a brilliant home cinema sound. Looks wise, they are stunning, the piano black is well worth the extra money and I am sure you would not be disappointed. The only thing I had to do was use the bungs to muffle the rear port as they are sited next to the wall, this reduced the boom I was getting and Made the setup right. On the whole brilliant speakers, getting better by the day as they run in and would highly recommend these speakers to anyone wanting a quality speaker, not too large and for a reasonable cost. Thanks also to Stuart at the Middlesbrough store for doing a good deal on the whole thing.
