Monitor Audio Silver 6AV12

 

As speaker systems go, Monitor Audio's Silver 6AV12 is a shining example

Stunning build quality and styling ; Immersive soundstage and flawless tonal consistency ; Lucid detail and well-integrated bass

Smooth, easy tone better suited to music ; Expensive ; High-gloss finishes cost extra

Monitor Audio Silver 6AV12

 

This is a top-notch surround package for the money. It's a worthy alternative to the award-winning KEF R100 5.1

Well matched character between the different speakers ; Seamless integration with the subwoofer ; Excellent surround speakers ; Lots of insight and precision ; Terrific build and finish

You’ll need quite a lot of space for the floorstanding fronts and centre ; A little care in matching is required

Overall, this Silver 6AV12 is a hugely capable package.

AVTech Awards 2014/2015

 

Monitor Audio's Silver 8 is a wonderfully capable floorstander, delivering music with subtlety and sophistication and offering a cavernous, well-projected soundstage. The finely constructed cabinet sports a three-way design with a 100mm midrange driver...

Monitor Audio Silver 6AV12 Review

 

Ed Selley finds out if you need a Silver package to reproduce the sound of the silver screen?

Exciting yet refined sound ; Lovely build and finish ; Clever subwoofer software

Needs thoughtful matching ; Front speakers need to be some distance from walls ; Lacquer finish at a premium

There are many references on the forums to the ‘Wife Acceptance Factor’ and many of them are derogatory - as if owning equipment that doesn’t look like it was made by blind men in a shed is some sort of cop out. In reality, many of us have front rooms...

Great speakers, but...

 

..Athough the sound quality was great once set up, setting it up was quite difficult (especially with the wires and banana plugs we'd got). Instructions were minimal and not informative. But still a great set of speakers!
