Platinum II

February 2016

PL200 II CES Launch!

"Monitor Audio has indeed taken a major step toward the ever-elusive impression of 'live' sound."

     - Robert Deutsch, Stereophile

"...sonics were rich, nicely weighted, with excellent integration of the difficult-to-handle tweeter/midrange transition."
     - Neil Gadar, The Absolute Sound

PL200 II Wins Jimmy Award

Jim Saxon from The Audio Beat visited the Monitor Audio suite at CES 2016 and seemed to be quite impressed with the PL200 II speakers:

"Their six-foot-tall Platinum 500 II loudspeakers commandeered the living room. Although the display was fine, on the way out my ear caught a more ingratiating melody from the bedroom. There, the diminutive floorstanding Platinum 200 II was mated to Cyrus electronics to sterling effect."

"At a conversational volume level, the Platinum 200 II was tonally balanced and sweetly detailed, a panacea for overburdened auditory ossicles." 

"For Best Bedroom-Sized Stereo System, Monitor Audio shares a Jimmy Award with Cyrus Audio."

The revised range includes new standmount and floorstanding models, all of which feature a brand-new MPD (Micro Pleated Diaphragm) tweeter and improved crossover design."
