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 DQQ1 from Speakers are Very Good Perhaps should've waited until lockdown ended so I could sample the speakers in store. They sound very good but are perhaps a little physically small. Yes they fit my bookshelf's perfectly but the ones they have replaced were a lot bigger. 4 stars for value as these are not cheap speakers but you get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nz100 from Good sound I use these as satellite speakers and they work well. Good choice if you are looking for something small and compact with good clarity. As always, good customer service from Richer Sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rachael69 from Sound is enthralling I got these speakers couple weeks ago as an upgrade. And the quality of sound across the frequencies is especially notable at high end. They also look great nice solid build quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Peter99999 from Great, compact stand mount speaker! I bought this speaker having heard it in the Richer Sounds studio, and am delighted by the quality of the sound. Whilst the room is quite large, the speakers are unobtrusive and yet fill the room with sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Excellent speakers I was contemplating buying something a bit cheaper but I'm now very glad that I spent more. They work very well in a largeish room (about 6m x 6m) and have excellent depth of sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dutchie from Excellent speakers I pre-selected these based on brand name, size and reviews. Listened to them in-store and compared with an alternative in the demo room. Choose these. Very happy. Still running in, but already sound superb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by brynj0 from Monitor Audio Silver 50 My wife bought me these speakers as a surprise present. They are a dream. They have a rich sound quality. The cabinets for the speakers are lovely. My music now has more detail and is more refined. The speakers are well worth the money. Simon, at the Birmingham store, was very helpful and knowledgable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by djbeersy from Stylish compact speakers with excellent sound The speakers provide crystal clear sound and complement the Yamaha CRXN470D compact hi Fi system that we purchased at the same time. The Walnut finish is very easy on the eye. They are excellent value for money. We really feel that when we listen to our classical CD collection we could well be in the concert hall.
