The Indulgence Show 2017 marks the UK debut of the Silver Series (6th Generation) from Monitor Audio in D15 Libourne on the 2nd floor. 

Monitor told us: “Introducing ground-breaking design throughout, this new series has been developed to provide a wider appeal to audiophiles and home cinema enthusiasts, delivering a characteristic ‘family sound’ while elevating performance to a bigger, more dynamic new level as the range increases in size from Silver 50 to Silver 500”.

Two new centre speakers enable a range of home theatre systems to be assembled, providing greater flexibility.  The slim Silver 50 and Silver 200 are more compact models. They can be combined with the complementary compact Silver C150 centre speaker to form a compact multi-channel system. The larger Silver C350 centre now provides the ability to create a “no compromise home theatre system”, based around the Silver 100, Silver 300 or Silver 500 models.

The trickle-down technology from Platinum and DCF filter (driver build-ring) improves the Silver Series’ drivers high-frequency The completely new drivers and tweeter are optimised to deliver lower distortion, The bass is better damped and this is particularly notable on the Silver 50 and Silver 200, which can be situated close to a wall.

Using the latest research from the National Physical Laboratory, Monitor Audio has used a scientific approach to deliver its cabinet-bracing design coupled with precision laser measurement equipment to help identify resonance nodes in cabinets, allowing the manufacturer to position internal bracing precisely. 

The higher impedance and optimised crossover networks deliver models that are all 8 ohms.  The new 25mm C-CAM (Ceramic-Coated Aluminium/Magnesium) featuring vented Neo magnet system is optimised for lower distortion.  Diaphragm rigidity and lower distortion are also achieved through the RST Cone profile, while the cast polymer driver chassis design improves the models’ rigidity and damping characteristics.  HiVe II port technology, located on the back of the cabinets to provide a clean look from the front, improves the transient response and gives smoother airflow. The crossovers use bespoke polypropylene film capacitors, air-core and low-loss laminated steel core inductors.

The new Silver Series (6th Generation) is available in selected wood veneers:  Black Oak, Walnut, Rosenut and Natural Oak, and in high gloss Black lacquer and Satin White finishes.
