Classic compact speakers with a sound that's entirely up to date
"...I used a pair of the company's Studio 20 floorstanders as my reference speakers. And it seems I've been missing out on something! ...I biwired the GS10s to a variety of amplifiers and receivers, from the price-compatible to the just plain silly, and in each case the presentation combined commendable scale with open, fresh detail and a natural, unforced nature...they are capable of filling relatively large spaces with music without showing raggedness...these are really superb little speakers.

"There may be compromises, but on the whole, speakers either sing - or they don't. And this one most definitely sings!..."
Hi-Fi Choice Magazine
"First class loudspeakers that successfully combine detail, emotion and atmosphere with pace and dynamics...Brilliant."
The Inner Ear Magazine
"...listeners can expect outstanding inner detail, crystal clear voices, subtle tonal hues and absolutely no colouration...the elegant fit and finish of these speakers will appeal to refined tastes...the various system combinations rendered sound through the Monitor Audio GS60s that was neither good nor great; rather, outstanding would be a more apt description!"

"Wide open and spacious sounding, there is little that will get past them in any comparison..."
Using these with a Bryston bp26/4bsst a great bit of synergy in my opinion. Great open soundstage , detail, good bass. I am trying to upgrade these but finding it difficult. Best £2k speaker I have heard, the hi fi world review is spot on as is the review above, they benefit from top class amplification.
I bought these speakers from a person who also had sonus faber cremona m, which cost 5 times more than GS20. For my taste GS20 sounded much better in sense of details, and much wider sound picture, but this person tells me that the reason why he wants to sell them is because they are too bright. I think that GS20 is not to bright its unbelievably CLEAN, and that's not the same thing. I recommend these speakers to everyone who like a spacious sound, crystal clear sound, and the more important thing is that you don't need to spend 2 years to find an adequate amp for your speakers, like I was doing before GS, with dynaudios, tannoys.... Spend your time enjoying listening to music, not to be a slave of equipment. You can always improve sound of your system, but it will cost you money, and time, and you always would be satisfied 99%, remains only one, but then lose the sense of listening music. At the end of this my theory the GS20 looks beautiful, and sound loud and clear.
Built to highest standards, exceptional craftsmanship and phenomenal sound. I am sure it will be a very sought out collectors item in a few years! Already rare and hard to find - I'm wondering how many of these were ever sold?
I bought some of these several years ago and have just upgraded my amp - which only served to demonstrate the unbelievable range of these speakers.
I'm like a kid on Christmas Day all over again. I have a 1500sq ft space to fill, and these do it effortlessly. They, er, go up to 12.
