Monitor Audio Silver 8 loudspeaker

2 posts in this topic

I remember reading about Monitor Audio speakers as I pored over British audio mags in the 1970s, before the economy was globalized. They were among the many worthy UK brands whose cachet was amplified by their unavailability in the US. This venerable brand has survived and flourished, while many others from the 1970s have disappeared, or become mere labels under the aegis of multinational corporations. The reasons for this success seem to be that Monitor has evolved their metal-cone driver technology, kept the focus on their core market, and continued to provide high-quality construction and finishes. So I was not surprised to read, at the back of the Silver 8's multi-language owner's manual, that the speaker was "Designed and Engineered in the United Kingdom, made in China."

Gooday Aaron ,                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       The speakers look extreemly impressive . the specs show the spkrs are a bit power hungry 80 db at 1 M,    They would benefit from a decent sub if used with say ,eg , pipe orgen music at very high levels . With your testing you compare them with the big guns B&W , very nice , and a fraction of the price ., kind regards..........................Alan
