MONITOR AUDIO RELEASES 5TH GENERATION GOLD SERIES LOUDSPEAKER RANGE

You could be forgiven for thinking that Monitor Audio's initial teaser video on social media last week hinted at some sort of new touchscreen device. It certainly had us fooled. In fact, it was teasing its new 5th-gen Gold Series loudspeaker range.

The British speaker manufacturer has now confirmed the release of an all-new Gold Series speaker range as shown in the now released video below. 

The new speaker series is refocused too as it is not merely a speaker-for-speaker refresh. The new Monitor Audio Gold line-up features six models in total with one pair (instead of two) of bookshelf speakers named Gold 100, and one centre channel speaker (not two) dubbed Gold C250. Then there are two three-way floorstanders, namely Gold 200 and Gold 300, a surround speaker titled Gold FX and finally the Gold W12 powered sub.

The Gold series borrows technology from the flagship Platinum II models. So, here we have mid/bass drivers with RDT II (Rigid Diaphragm Technology) that sandwiches a thin C-CAM, Nomex honeycomb core and a woven carbon fibre back skin for a formation that’s rigid and stiff yet lightweight.

The new half-dozen models also utilise MPD (Micro Pleated Diaphragm) tweeters and cabinets that have received dampening and bracing solutions for reducing unwanted resonance. We are told that the HiVe II ports improve transient response and bass tautness, too. 

Monitor Audio’s Gold Series becomes available from next month in piano gloss black, satin white, dark walnut, and piano ebony finishes.

Australian pricing has not yet been confirmed.
