Hi-Fi News GX200 review

The "Home of Real Hi-Fi" gives an in-depth analysis of Monitor Audio's GX200 floorstanding speaker:

"The Patricia Barber recording sounded wonderfully three-dimensional, and with Reference Recordings' high resolution recording of the Tchaikovsky piece the GX200s came alive, the fine detail of percussion in the orchestra delivered with electrostatic-like transparency".

Gold GX

November 2011

Setting the Gold Standard

Home Cinema Choice magazine gives their verdict on the Gold GX Series with an all round 5 star approval across the board.

In the latest January 2012 issue of Home Cinema Choice magazine our Gold GX series was reviewed, tried and tested for performance, design and features and then rewarded with a fantastic overall review of 5/5 stars across the categories.

Here's a snippet taken from the full review "Running through Pirates...had me scribbling all sorts of notes ('huge, rich, foundation-shifting bass with power and grip'; 'nil flex on the 15in piston'; 'Exciting, musical and able to create a sense of scale'), but all you need to know is that I loved this system with a passion."

I have had the GX200s for coming up to two years. They are fed by four monobloc cyrus x200 power amps. Bi wired and bi amped.I must admit, after around a week of owning them, i felt that i had made an expensive mistake. These speakers MUST have a long running in period. I have found that as time has gone on, they are now sounding absolutely superb. They are very critical of poor recordings. Magazine reviews dont do these speakers jusice, because of the lack of running in. I honestly dont think that i could get speakers to match these at the price and without having to spend at least £1000 more.

When i first met MA it was love at first sight. I have had the complete RX series, but the upgrade virus has hit me.

Now i own a GXC150 and GX200 both in High gloss white!! Very Very nice, i also have spare black grilles orded with it, looks ever more expensive!!

The sound is suberB with an even greater B...!!! Every time people say what a great sound they give, What kind of brand is that? Then i say: "Monitor Audio :) !!"
Now only have to upgrade my RXFX and my RXW-12..it is a matter of time though!

Love Monitor Audio, it's the best you can have.

Spent a few weeks auditioning speakers around the £2k price bracket, PMC 23s were the initial choice, Dali Mentor 5s were more exiting than the PMCs but sounded too harsh in places (may have been the source) then I heard the GX200s set up on similar kit to mine, they had the excitement but not too bright. Although I originally wondered if I had made a big mistake when I first set therm up at home, and I have had to try various different speaker positions, and had plenty of "Marmite" moments with these speakers, I have learnt a lot about my room dynamics in the process, but now with the GXs in the right position I am enjoying my music like never before, the TV is feeling unloved, and i know I made the right choice.
My only wish is I did not have to have them protruding out into the room so much to get the required distance from the rear wall, good job I am not married, but they still look fantastic in black.
Now I am on a drive to upgrade source kit to get even more out of the GXs.

Just spent a couple of days auditioning several speakers around the £2k price mark. I was intending on buying either PMC, Spendor or B&W, then out of nowhere the GX200 came along. They were the most impressive of all of them. I liked the PMC Twenty 23 initially, but in comparison, they sound quite ordinary. The only problem with these speakers is that they are so detailed that they have rendered lots of my music unlistenable - the poor recordings are so obvious. Time to source some better quality stuff!

Very, very happy with my GX200. Highs are so pure and clear but bass is also very strong and life-like. Very impressed that it keeps its high quality sound also at very high volume levels; can sit outside on the balcony and still have hifi quality music experiences in nature.

And they are as exquisite and beautiful in the white high-gloss lacquer. :)

The Monitor Audio Gold GX 200 is for sure one of the best values in the price range up to 7000 $ or even more. It's one of the most elegant designs of today's loudspeakers and beautifully veneered. Bass performance is simply one of the best I've ever experienced, both tight and remarkably deep. The medium spectrum ist very open and packed with details. Just neutral at its best. Highs are in the same league, very informative and sparkling - but not aggressive (unless you use very bad recordings). Summed up, you get a precise, very entertaining sound that is both "fast" and natural, offering an almost "live" caracter. If there's a "but", you could name the soundstage, that is more laterally present than very deep. Goes for all kinds of music. For example, a revelation for techno sound, but also ......... classic ! A real allrounder ! The good news is that the successor model (same size), the new Gold 200 is yet more homogeneous, with yet increased precision and improved imaging (= deeper soundstage, now perfect). Just avoid harsh and forward sounding equipment and cables, then you can't go wrong. Should be neutral or slightly warm stuff and precise in any case. And allow a long running-in time !
