Gold 5.1 is a stunner!

October’s edition of Home Cinema Choice hosts a stunning review debut for the Gold 300AV 5.1 system. Awarding a Best Buy (rare at the price level) and five glorious stars in every category: Performance, Design, Features and Overall, the magazine’s home theatre doyen Adam Rayner concludes “So, the Gold 300AV costs plenty but offers enormity. It has the might and it has clarity. It can play sweet and linear at low levels or it can frighten the neighbours’ neighbours. The sheer bandwidth on tap is amazing and in truth, after admiring the design and finish and a little experimentation with the sub’s EQ settings, you’ll rapidly forget about the enclosures. The sound is immediately engaging, grasping you by the senses and dragging you into a movie with ease. With the Gold 300AV you get delicious performance in every direction. You could pay more and get less. Best buy, easy.”

"Exemplary" Gold 200 sets a new standard for TED Magazine!

The team at French tech publication TED Magazine have been left in awe of our Gold 200 floorstanding speaker!

"I knew the GX50 and their impressive bass performance very well, and I was expecting an even more percussive result with the Gold 200, I was not deceived!"

Remarking on the scale and quality of sound reproduction, they were left amazed by the Gold 200's capabilities as it tackled a selection of music and film genres with ease.

"the impact and the depth of the bass are of of a level of quality rarely heard on speakers with such a small foot print"

"The voice reproduction is incredibly precise and three dimensional, the piano, the saxophone and the percussion are fantastic. The panorama of the two Golds extends across the entire front wall of my room, even if there's only two. I have to open my eyes to place them physically."

"Beautifully designed" Gold 300 & W15 Subwoofer

A full five stars for our Gold 300 floorstanding speaker and Gold W15 subwoofer!

Reviewer Bob Barrett tests the 2.1 Gold series setup with an array of music and film; putting it to the test and experiencing what the series has to offer:

"the soundstage was very wide, again compliments of the ribbon transducer. And the Gold 300 speakers reproduced it all with the tonal neutrality found among only the best loudspeakers."

"The W15 provided an excellent deep-bass foundation, adding to the scale and impact of this selection."

"The beautifully designed Monitor Audio Gold Series system is the best-sounding surround system at its price point that I’ve ever heard, period."

Fantastic! Refined, resolute and powerful enough to beat Silver 6 bass response.

Gold 300

When your budget is £3000 on speakers, you will make sure the choice made is the right one. Researching online then spending 4hrs listening to different speakers with similar price range, I came to the conclusion the Monitor Audio Gold300 was for me. The detail of each instrument in the mix, open sound stage, the high frequencies beautifully blended with the mid-range, even at high volume levels sound was not harsh and the low end was low - very low, bass sounded excellent with detail not boomy at all. The closest to the Monitor Audio was the B&W CM10 S2, they sounded warmer but lack the detail and open sound field, the mid-range was not as good at the gold 300. The B&W are good speakers they came second, the clear winner was the gold 300, not only they are beautifully made, they sound awesome.

The speaker placement I have is 23cm from the back wall with 1.8 meters apart. I have had the speakers for just over a month and they are sounding better and better, the vocals sound like you have a centre speaker connected and the over detail improves with more warmth in the music. I used to have a subwoofer connected on my previous speakers for music as a 2.1 system, because it lack bass, not anymore as the bass extension is excellent on the gold. Connected to a Pioneer SC-LX series amplifier, the movies’ sound has so much detail with the sound feels very open, I am having to go through my movie collection again.

Previously owned other range of Monitor Audio, Kef, Mordaunt-Short and Paradigm speakers, the Gold 300 are the best sounding speakers I have ever had and for the price worth every penny. Very highly recommended, you won’t be disappointed, put these speakers on your list. I can go on and on and unfortunately not been paid by Monitor Audio for this review they just sound awesome.

By far the best quality for their price money can buy!

If you are serious about buying one of the best speakers in its price range then look no further than Monitor Audio's Gold Series, specifically the 200 or 300. I am a long time buyer of Monitor Audio speakers-now on my 3rd pair. I recently, upgraded to the MA Gold 200s from the Silver 10s. While the Silver 10s are a excellent speaker, the Gold 200s are a solid step up in quality and performance. The sound is beyond amazing and the fit and finish is the best that I have seen. I looked at other speakers costing several thousand dollars more. But by spending upwards of $7K to $8K, would I get that much more performance? Doubtful. MA has been in business for years and know how to make great sounding speakers. Most listeners choose the Golds vs other brands when conducting an audition. Once you hear them, you will want them. ..that I am sure of.
