CP-IW460X review by George de Sa

Another great review of our CP-IW460X in-wall speakers, this time by George de Sa at NOVO Magazine.

'The ribbon tweeter in the CP-IW460X is truly a high-end transducer, revealing minute inflections and fine detail in a most refined manner.'

'Like a ‘sleeper’ hot-rod, the CP-IW460X delivers delicious high-end performance behind a most unassuming exterior.'

Residential Systems Reviews CP-IW260X & CP-IW460X!

Here is a fantastic review on the CP-IW460X as well as the CP-IW260X by John Sciacca from Residential Systems! John says the speakers have "sound quality that will make you forget you're listening to an in-wall."

"Turning on the 460X’s was like removing the proverbial veil from the sound, releasing this sense of space and delicacy around every recording, and letting every note stand clear and ready to be appreciated."

More great quotes are below:

"The audio is airy, open, detailed, lightning-quick, and effortless."

"The ribbon tweeter is so fast and revealing, it excels at extracting the fine details from any delicate parts of a recording; taking loving, kid gloves to stringed instruments, female vocals, piano notes, cymbal work, and the like, carefully polishing them up, and delivering them in glorious, refined detail."

"The 460X’s captured the aching detail in her voice, even the nearly indistinct sound of her lips parting as she opens her mouth to sing." "If you have been skeptical of high-resolution audio, not thinking you could hear or appreciate the detail, the 460X’s will take you to church and make you a believer." "...even at these extreme volume levels, the 460X’s delivered audio that was clean, loud, and oh-so-danceable, without being fatiguing or harsh on the ears. At high volumes these speakers make your walls disappear and have you forget you aren’t listening to a tower."

Where the In-Wall Meets the Audiophile

"From the mayhem of people shouting during a scene in The Revenant, to the crashing of buildings and the pounding synthesizer bass lines in Deadpool that could be felt throughout the room, the CP-IW460X managed to effectively recreate these movies in all their respective glory"

"These are the first in-wall speakers I can actually say are good enough to replace standalone speakers for both home theatre and two-channel applications"

Monitor Audio debuts high-end Controlled Performance in-wall speakers

"Monitor Audio has expanded its architectural loudspeaker line-up with two new flagship Controlled Performance in-wall models. The CP-IW260X and CP-IW460X sport compact three-way, five-driver configurations, built into a closed-box design. The duo are fronted by trimless magnetic grilles.

The speakers, which have been designed for music and home cinema sound, employ a high-end design and use technology tickled down from the brand’s top-end free standing line-up. C-CAM (Ceramic-Coated Aluminium/Magnesium) doped cones are deployed in a dual 6.5-inch bass driver, twin 4-inch mid and tweeter (‘B-M-T-M-B’) configuration."
