MONITOR Audio has refreshed its mid-to-high end Silver Series speakers, moving it to the seventh generation (hence, 7G). The Silver has been widely acclaimed over the years for use in stereo and home cinema systems, and the new models, tweaked to current needs, come in a number of real-wood veneers or painted finishes.
As in the previous version, there are two standmount models (Silver 50/10), three floorstanders (200/300/500), a centre channel (C250), surround (FX7) and Atmos (AMS 7). We don’t see anything about the new subwoofer, but Monitor Audio also advertises two HT packages – the 200 Cinema 5.1 and 300 Cinema 7.1.2 – that include a sub.
“The Silver Series 7G embodies our decades of audio expertise. Thanks to a choice of real-wood veneers or beautifully painted and finished cabinets, these speakers have a refined, understated look, the perfect counterpoint to their bold, powerful sound.
“And with class-leading performance through our latest metal coned drivers with Rigid Surface Technology II, the music you love is more precise, with less distortion than ever. So even with the volume pumped right up, the sound you hear couldn’t be clearer,” the press releases says.
Rigid Surface Technology II is integral to the Silver Series. Monitor Audio claims it is tougher and more rigid than other driver designs, and delivers excellent directivity in all conditions.
As for the highs, “a combination of lightweight metals and ceramics in our C-CAM tweeters give you the kind of clear, complex sound rarely heard in the home… on the Monitor Audio Silver Series 7G, whether you’re watching a new film or listening to that old LP for the thousandth time, you’ll be hearing it with beautiful clarity and depth.”
Obviously, the Silver range is friendly to home decor.
“With clean lines and elegant proportions, the Silver Series 7G is made for every kind of home interior – from classic to contemporary. The real-wood veneer, including new Ash and Natural Walnut options, gives a look as natural as the sound.”
The Silver Series 7G is already available.
