Yes, I Would Recommend

Owned for one week and they already sound great. I would not hesitate in recommending to a friend. Delivery was fast. They were well packaged. Sales guy, Joe, was helpful. Using with Vincent tube amp and Rega turntable. Best audio system for the buck. Recommend.

I Am Happy With The Speaker

I did a fair amount of speaker auditioning before ordering these. Comparing them against the B&W CM 9 I thought the Monitor Silver 8's sounded better overall and also very attractive. The tweeters sounded good on both, but the midrange and mid-bass were better to my ears on the Monitor's. The Monitor's had a better soundstage were also priced lower than the B&W's, so are a much better value. They arrived quickly and were well packaged for shipment. No issue with the set up. I am happy with the speaker.

Very Pleased

One month now and here is my report: they are very good speakers overall and the mids and highs are crystal clear. There is plenty of bass, more than I expected from a pair of 6 inch woofers. They sound very evenly balanced. The fit and finish of the Silver 8s is incredible, more like fine furniture. These speakers are very solidly constructed. Rap the speaker hard with your hand, there is no hollow sound just the thunk from hitting the speaker. I am very pleased with the Monitor Silver 8 speakers.

Better Than I Was Expecting

They are great looking and even better sounding tower speakers. These replaced a pair of low end Wharfedale speakers and I really can hear what I was missing. They are a little on the revealing side so they improve with better sources and amplification. I started with my NAD 748 receiver which was already very good until I tried my Audio Research amp and then they really opened up and shined beautifully. Overall I am very happy with the purchase. They look and sound better than I expected for the price paid.

Not A Dissapointment In Any Way

The quality of sound is what I was looking for. These are a beautiful sounding and looking pair of speakers. The finish of the wood veneer is a big step up from vinyl wrapped MDF speakers. Build quality is great. These are articulate speakers. Vocals are well-defined and overall the sound is open and clear - not boxy or muffled as compared to other speakers in their price range. I continue to enjoy listening to my music library and watch movies with these hooked up in my living room. I have a pair of MartinLogan Theos in my main listening room, but feel these are not a disappointment in any way.

Top Notch

The Monitors blow the less expensive speakers away. I have these paired with the Cambridge CXA80 amp and I really couldn't be happier. I can clearly make out individual instruments. They hang suspended in my room just like I am at the concert. My music never sounded this good before. These are top notch all the way!

How do they do it for this low price

As a long time audiophile - 30+ years - I have owned a variety of big name brand of speaker - B&W, Thiel, Wharfedale and these babies are without a doubt the best sounding speakers that I have owned. They play all genres without effort and without compromise. Fast, tight sweet, airy - how do they do it for this low price?

Get them, but hurry

They sound neutral, homogenous and adapted well to all types of music. Bass is precise - clean and fast. Mids are as authentic and bettter than anything in this price class. Highs have the perfect mix of crispness with a soft presentation. All in all, It adds up to a neutral and balanced sound that's really fun and entertaining. If you can manage to get them for a nice price - like I did - buy them, but spend the extra on with good quality equipment and cables because they will make a difference in your musical enjoyment.

Great Speaker From Monitor Audio

The Monitor Audio Silver 8 is a great sounding speaker. Immediately out of the box I could hear things with the Silver 8 that I wasnt hearing with my old speakers. Im using the NAD 275BEE amp for power and my room dimensions are 13.5 feet wide by 22 feet deep. The Silver 8s are quite adequate to fill the room with clear midrange, nice highs and deep tight bass. Im excited to hear what they sound like after the 60 to 70-hour break-in period. I chose the black gloss and they look great. I am very satisfied with this purchase.
