  • PERFECT DEMO PAIR
  • Size-defying high output and dynamic delivery make the 2 way Silver 1 the ideal choice for small to medium rooms in two-channel stereo or multi-channel cinema systems.

    If you love fabulous sound and design, get ready for a blissful encounter. From each of eight new Silver Series models you’ll experience a unity of form and function that is as precise as it is compelling; the product of over forty years of speaker development, invested with our love for accurate audio, imbued with our belief in design perfection.

    Abundant dynamics bearing a wideband response rich with textures and detail; holographic clarity and wonderfully accurate imaging – all the ingredients of great sound brought to a breathtaking focus by the refinement of our flagship technologies and the introduction of new acoustic innovation. Combined in perfectly voice-matched systems for music and film, Silver delivers the sonic superlatives but also reaches a new level of lifestyle appeal. Super-slender and finished in a choice of Rosenut, Walnut, Natural Oak, and Black Oak real- wood veneers - and in devastatingly chic gloss black and white - the new Silver range has the power to complement any room without sacrificing living space. It’s a beguiling force of nature and state-of-the-art loudspeaker design, made to re-energize entertainment in your home.

    We’ve set the bar high for Silver. Building on the DNA of its multi-award-winning RX predecessor, new Silver adds lustre with an exceptional balance of performance, versatility and value, fine-tuned by extensive FEA modelling and dedicated listening. Anyone can create an expensive speaker; it takes genuine expertise and imagination to achieve a unity of audiophile sound and seductive aesthetics across an a ordable family of slender models.

    Features introduced by our prestigious Platinum and Gold series speakers have been enhanced, and recent innovations in driver engineering incorporated across an extended new range, which includes two stand mount models: Silver 1 and 2; three floor speakers: Silver 6, 8, 10; and dedicated Centre, ‘FX’ surround and active subwoofer models. While Silver 1, 2, 6, Centre and FX retain the form factor of their predecessors, the Silver 8 becomes a full three way design, and new to the Silver genre, the Silver 10 tower o ers an up-scaled oor-standing format, featuring twin 8” bass drivers for a deeper more dynamic and consistent response in larger rooms.

    Beneath the precise craftsmanship of Silver’s slender, luxuriously finished cabinets, single bolt-through driver fixings act to brace the structure while eliminating the need for conventional driver fixings for a cleaner more elegant styling – especially in tandem with Silver’s ‘invisible’ magnetic grille location. Each Silver cabinet is sleekly streamlined - the lustrous real wood veneers and gloriously- glossed finishes unbroken by conventional fixings. Their absence is by design. Not only do the innovative through- bolts contribute to a more sophisticated cabinet appearance, they decouple the driver and front baffle as well, removing a further source of resonance.

    From our flagship Platinum speakers, Monitor Audio’s HiVe®II port technology is incorporated on all but Centre, FX and W12 subwoofer models. HiVe II uses a straight rifled design to accelerate air flow and reduce turbulence for clean powerful bass and superior transient response. Comprising optimised circuits of polypropylene film capacitors, air core and laminated steel core inductors, Silver Series crossovers dovetail individual driver response with absolute precision while maintaining the best possible signal integrity.

    The new bass and mid-range drivers deployed by Silver rewrite the rule book. Unlike conventional driver cones, which incorporate a centre aperture for the voice-coil, the RST® (Rigid Surface Technology) C-CAM® designs deployed by the Silver series take the form of a continuous uninterrupted dish. Strengthened by a uniquely dimpled surface their greater area radiates more sound, and driven by a larger voice coil and motor, delivers greater efficiency and a cleaner more accurate response. This means you’ll experience all the natural dynamism of the original studio mix - complete with micro- second timing – across a broader range of frequencies. New silver will reveal the rhythmic pulse of your favorite music and movies like never before.

    Silver 8 and 10 models feature a newly developed, low distortion 4” mid-range driver, operating in its own optimized enclosure to expose visceral levels of detail where your sense of hearing is most sensitive. Having a dedicated mid driver in these larger models brings balance to the entire driver system, matching truly dramatic output levels with accuracy at all frequencies for a sound so well defined and three dimensional, you’ll believe you can almost touch it.
