Feel the full force of music, with the Monitor Audio Silver 500 speakers.

Flagship model for reference dynamics

If you like to feel your music as opposed to simply hear it then these are the speakers for you. With a bass reach that makes a separate subwoofer totally unnecessary, the Silver 500s do justice to the most dynamic rock and full scale orchestras. The three-way design is suitable for large rooms although still easy-going about positioning. They also make awesome front speakers for a top quality home cinema system.

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 8" bass cones and 4" mid-range units feature distinctive RST (Rigid Surface Technology). Inspired by the Japanese art of Origami, the lightweight cones are made more rigid by the precise pattern of surface dimples. It makes the mid-range open and natural-sounding.

With technology from the Platinum series
Evolved from the reference quality Platinum models, the Silver 500 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 500 looks every bit as good as it sounds. The new tweeter features a smart speckled finish for individual style. Magnetically attached grilles give a clean appearance when removed - ideal for showing off those hi-tech drive units.

From the deepest bass to the highest treble, hear every element of the music with the impressive Monitor Audio 500 speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear and precise at any volume I bought the silver 500,100,350 for my homr cinema. I'm running them from the yamaha 1080. I couldn't be more happy I'm very fussy about quality of sound and monitor deliver even at low volume they are so clear I'm hearing sounds in movies and from my records that my old sony system couldn't deliver and if you want to shake the house they'll do that too without sacrificing quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound that will only get better Great looking piece of kit which sound even better than they look. Bass is solid without being too boomy with high frequency just on the bright side of perfect but nothing that would make listening tiring. Acccording to instructions they need a ggod 50 hours run in time to sound at their best so not got that many hours out of them yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnificent sound quality I bought a pair of these 2 months ago and have been running them in. They just get better and better! They have a stunning clarity and a bass response that packs a punch. I first thought I might need separate subwoofers but no need at all! Have thrown everything at them and they handle it with ease, Trance, Rock, Classical etc. Fabulous and a joy to listen to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service and Great speakers Decided to upgrade my speakers to the Monitor Audio silver 500's, they arrived as expected via delivery from Richer Sounds, the courier on line service allows tracking of the delivery so you can gauge/estimate time of arrival, ran them in gently for about 80-100h, now sound fantastic and work well with all kinds of music and really do handle a lot of power, they easily match the >250W each from my bridged Rotel RB981's and work really well.
