Radius HD Range
Promising even more style, practicality and performance, RadiusHD is a décor-matching series of ultra-compact satellite speakers that replaces the original and radical Radius range. Brilliantly conceived and beautifully crafted, Monitor Audio's wholly innovative Radius concept miniaturised the virtues of elite hi-fi engineering without shrinking sound quality. By harmonising elegant, ultra-compact design and great sound, Radius systems rendered a generation of cheap plastic systems obsolete.
With improved styling, finishes and even better performance, RadiusHD marks a comprehensive upgrade of a classic lifestyle design. Tuned and optimised by the latest computer modelling techniques, the nine-strong HD range blends better dynamics with wider bandwidth to add explosive force and detailed subtlety to film sound and music. Radius HD offers improved dynamic performance and extended bandwidth by virtue of a further refinement of MA's Metal Matrix Polymer (MMP® II) for the bass drivers and Ceramic-Coated Aluminium Magnesium (C-CAM®) technologies for the tweeters. The five Radius HD satellites are designed to operate perfectly in LCR positions; there’s also an ultra-slender floor standing model, two active subwoofers (8" and 10") and a combined three-channel A/V speaker the 'Radius One HD', which is perfect for ultra-discreet applications.
By offering a wide choice of compact lifestyle speakers in as many as five décor-enhancing lacquer and real-wood finishes, complete with versatile easy-install bracket systems and floor stands (model specific), the RadiusHD series makes it easier to custom fit high quality sound to every room in your home.

T3.com Radius R one HD review
The Gadget Guru's at T3.com have listened in on the Radius R one HD and here's a snippet of what they had to say...
"Designed simply for those simply wanting to reduce the number of speakers in either a 5.1 or 2.1 set-up, the R one HD is not your average soundbar."
"Surround sound can only be gotten from adding rear speakers (such as the matching R45HD rear bookshelf speakers, £190 per pair), and our sample also came with an active, wired Radius 370HD subwoofer. Fitted with three-inch Gold C-CAM dome tweeters and four Metal Matrix Polymer driver cones, the R one HD can be wall-mounted using fixings in the box."
"Despite it doing the work of three home cinema speakers, this speaker-excels. It won't impress as much in over-large home cinema, of course, but in our medium-sized test room (about 15x15ft) we were able to discern impressive separation in a multichannel mix."

"...And oh those tweeters! Monitor Audio have a had a lot of experience with metal domes, and these were a joy to listen to...the MA’s had speed, grip and insight in spades – without a hint of harshness. It’s safe to say that I can’t remember hearing a better treble performance from a pair of £300 loudspeakers..."
Rich Sound in a Small, Elegant Speaker System
"...the finely polished real wood veneer, gold-plated binding post speaker connectors and excellent fit and finish, the mini Monitor system exudes quality...the Monitor Audio R90HD speakers sound like a larger bookshelf speaker and comfortably blend into almost any room decor...the subwoofer sounded full and deep...the mini-Monitors easily reproduced the wide dynamics...the R90HD mini Monitors will decieve the eyes, but not the ears. They're small enough to be virtually invisible but with their fine finish, you'll want to place them where they can be seen and appreciated...with sound that matches and exceeds many bookshelf speakers...I heartily recommend them!

Radius revival for the HD generation
"Stylish, discreet and flexible design; very clear, solid and large delivery; awesomely authoritive subwoofer...the old Radius range was great but this new HD system is even better!"
I have had a couple of R90hd in my living room for the last couple of years, and I still think they sound great. The setup is simple: turntable, amp, speakers. They are not the most powerfull speakers around, but my living room is small and I don't need them loud or big.
I purchased this set because I was able to test a dozen of speakers at the shop. All of a similar size and power, and after a couple of hours of listening these MA sounded better to me than the rest.
I hope they last for years.
