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 JorgeGallo from The best of the best!!! Powerful bass!!! These are the best speakers! full sound! The best combination is with the Cambridge Audio CXA80 integrated amplifier, sincerely I have tried it with many amplifiers, from several Roksan, Rotel A1592, Cambridge Audio CXA81 was not good because it does not deliver bass, among other amplifiers, and the best result was with the CXA80! test it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Darren256 from Excellent sounding speakers and look stunning I purchased the monitor audio silver 500's in white from the nottingham store! The guys over there was very helpful and let me demo them on a av reciever then a few days later 2 amplifies that i was looking at, this is the 2nd time ive purchased from the Nottingham store. The first time was in the early 2000's, i purchased a pair of limit dj speakers which are still working to this day, if your looking for some great sounding speakers then head down to your local richersounds and demo the silver 500's you wont be disappointed

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bails7919 from Impressive build quality even better sound I purchased these along with the 350C center and Silver FX for a dedicated home cinema. After listening to the silver 200 and Dali range in the demo room I felt that they were lacking the punch i was hoping for. I opted to purchase the 500's without listening to them first, Firstly these speakers are very large in every dimension but incredibly well made. The sound quality is simply stunning, clear precise and I can happily report the punch is incredible, bass is extremely low and very well controlled. Be warned listening to Awolnation's-sail at a high volume level will make you come away feeling like you have been physically assaulted but with the biggest grin on your face.
