"Really, What More Could You Want?"
The Monitor Audio Silver 10 floorstanding speaker is a completely new model, using a three-way design in a large floorstanding tower system. The 4" C-CAM RST midrange driver flanked by long-throw C-CAM RST 8" bass drivers. The acoustic design is similar to the Silver 8 but the enhanced driver size means that the 10 is equipped to energize the largest of rooms with 'naturally explicit' wideband audio. Silver 10 also boasts Silver's new 1" C-CAM tweeter.
"Great voicing, solid bass when properly distanced from the rear walls, an engaging soundstage, and an ability to sound great with a wide range of music. Really, what more could you want from an affordable speaker?" notes Spencer Holbert in his December 2014 review for The Absolute Sound magazine.
Unlike conventional driver cones, the new C-CAM (Ceramic-Coated Aluminum/Magnesium) RST (Rigid Surface Technology) bass and midrange drivers take the form of a continuous uninterrupted dish. Strengthened by a uniquely dimpled surface, their greater area radiates more sound, and driven by a larger voice coil and motor, delivers greater efficiency and a cleaner, more accurate response.
Silver 8 and 10 models feature a newly developed, low distortion 4" midrange driver, operating in its own optimized enclosure to expose visceral levels of detail where your sense of hearing is most acute.
Inspired engineering has also produced the Silver tweeter. Silver's new 1" C-CAM tweeter design vents internally around the outside of the magnet system into a large rear-loading chamber. This releases pressure at the back of the tweeter while producing much lower resonance and better overall damping. You'll experience a wider, more accurate, and extended frequency response for greater harmonic authenticity and a smoother more natural handover with the midbass driver.
The New Silver Series
If you love fabulous sound and design, get ready for a blissful experience. The new Monitor Audio Silver Series delivers a unity of form and function that is as precise as it is compelling. It's the product of over forty years of speaker development, invested with a love for accurate audio.
Features introduced by Monitor Audio's prestigious Platinum and Gold series speakers have been enhanced, and recent innovations in driver engineering have been incorporated across an extended new line-up.
Super-slender and finished in a choice of rosenut, walnut, natural oak, and black oak real-wood veneers (and in devastatingly chic gloss black and white), the new Silver series is made to re-energize entertainment in your home.
Bolt-through Driver Design
Single bolt-through driver fixings have the dual effect of improving cabinet rigidity while further reducing vibration at the driver/cabinet interface. By this innovative method, drivers are mounted on a single tensioned through-bolt, which is secured to the back of the cabinet. The bolt not only acts as a rigid cabinet brace to reduce box coloration, it removes the need for conventional driver fixings as well, effectively decoupling the driver and baffle to eliminate another source of unwanted resonance. The result is a more fluid communication of mid-range frequencies, and with the absence of front driver fixings, a cleaner more refined overall appearance, especially in tandem with RX's 'invisible' magnetic grille location.
HiVe II (High Velocity) Reflex Port
Developed for the flagship Gold Signature range, the HiVe II reflex port is shaped to have the same effect on airflow as a gun-barrel on a bullet. Rifled groves inside the port help to accelerate the flow and reduce turbulence, so that air moves in and out of the port more efficiently for a faster more dynamic bass response.

|Sounding Better And Better|
Owned for two weeks now and they sound better every time I listen to them. Powering them with the Vincent 237 tube-hybrid amp and the synergy is like magic. Construction quality is second to none at this price. I love the plinth bases that protect the speaker from nics and improve the bass response. No need for a subwoofer with these, just get a good amp!

|Fantastic - Can't say enough great things about these|
Owned for one year and I'm still please with the purchase. They sound fantastic in my room with my gear. From Led Zepphlin to Frank Sinatra to Mozart, these sound briiliant on every genre. Finish and build quality is outstanding. Friends who come over can't believe how little I paid for them. I think I've sold three pairs of Silver 6s and Silver 8s so far. I should get a commission.

|Impeccable Construction. Brilliant Sound.|
During my search for the new speakers I auditioned four different sets of speakers at my home or at friends over the course of two months. Those I heard Included KEFs, Polk, ELACs and B&W. Then I discovered a pair of used Monitor Audio Silver 10s. I was immediately struck by the remarkable construction of the cabinets and the amazing drivers. Online reviewers I've read just don't do justice to the quality. I bought them on the spot. Driving home I started to wonder if I have made a mistake. What if they didn't sound as good in my home? After I got home and hooked them up my worries melted away. They sounded - and continue to sound - brilliant on all type of music. Organ, piano, orchestra, guitar all sound amazing. These are the luckiest purchase I've made. I couldn't be happier.

These speakers are outstanding. I auditioned many speakers and finally settled on these Silver 10 speakers. They look superb with a high quality real wood finish and they sound amazing. These really gave me the best balance of everything I was looking for. The crystal clear mid-range of the B&W, the bass response of PSB, the sparkle and airiness of Martin Logan with much better dispersion, all in a much better and classier finish than any of those manufacturers offer.
At this price, I see no rivals. Excellent dynamics, soundstage, uncolored rendering and even a tad of bass that belies their size. For this money, could not recommend them high enough.
|Another Great Speaker From Monitor Audio|
This is the second pair of speakers I bought from MA. I replaced a set of Monitor Audio Silver RS6s. The new Silver line is even better. MA flat out builds great speakers. The Silver 10s are noticeably larger than the 6s and even 8s. The build quality is second to none. Sound quality is first rate too. I have them hooked up to a Parasound A-21. If you are thinking about a really really good tower speaker, please consider MA Silvers. I assure you, you will not be disappointed in the least.
