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 mhag31 from Room-filling sound I bought a Monitor Audio Silver/Bronze setup for my cinema and like the Silver 200s so much I bought a pair of Silver 500s for the living room. They are beautifully finished and the sound is epic. Even at relatively low volume settings they fill a room with music. No subwoofer required.

Rated 5 out of 5 by David 21 from Home demo I have been auditioning these Monitor audio silver 500 speakers at home for the last week & have fallen in love with them, they are all I expected & more in both in sound & appearance. Thank you to the staff at Birmingham for allowing me to listen to these beautiful babies at home before deciding if I was happy. I have been listening through my cambridge audio CXa81 that I purchased from Richer sounds last year. Many thanks David

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Super, rich sound Purchased this month, speakers look the part and have a lovely warmth and clarity that brings music to life. The range is exceptional and the ability of the speakers to effortlessly layer the sound is a joy. Fantastic sound without breaking a sweat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PanigaleFun from Look good, sound good Still early days, half way through running in two pairs of these Silver 500's (fronts/surrounds) in a 7.1.2 array. I've upgraded from 4x Silver 200's and can immediately hear more in the mid-bass region. It's quite a change/improvement due to the fact that if you sit in a corner of the room (think entertaining guests whilst playing music) in the vicinity one of these 500's, you're able to appreciate the full acoustic range of the music whilst still being able hear a conversation. Monitor Audio weren't kidding when they claim that a subwoofer isn't required!
