PL200 AV 5.1 system 'Best speaker system over £5,000'

"If you're speccing a high-end cinema room, you can't afford to ignore it"



November 2008

Compact speakers with a big, generous sound

"They're not sweet, they're not rich - they're just neutral, and very revealing...These are speakers with real speed and attack...as impressive is the way they give a fine impression of the scale of large musical forces..."

Platinum Asset

David Price auditions one of Monitor Audio's most impressive compact loudspeakers...
'...whereas the company in recent years has done very well built-to-a-price products, the PL100 (and its PL300 bigger brother) offer just plain beautiful construction (think Volkswagen, then Bentley) ...the sense of space that those tweeters confer is enrapturing,  and a joy to behold...vocals were smooth, delicately etched and superbly projected into the room  - the MAs imaging with joyful abandon, sounding unfettered and out of the box...'

High end not in finishing but also in sound. Heaven sound with platinum subwoofer and pl100. Very difficult to find similar sound and built in near of this price.

I've paired it with musical fidelity A1008 amplifier and Vincent tube cd player, a must be heard sound...

Thanks to monitor audio
