The January 2018 issue (issue 279) of The Absolute Sound features the 'High End Audio Product of the Year Awards', their most exclusive and prestigious award presented to products that stand above all others as the most impressive from 2017.
We are honoured to announce that Monitor Audio's Silver 300 received the award, with Robert Harley calling it "our first choice for Floorstanding Speaker of the Year."
A full review will be available soon from The Absolute Sound, who are already offering their praise. Robert described the Silver 300 as having "a compelling array of musical virtues". This included, "terrific speed on transients, effortless reproduction of dynamics, and overall sense of musical coherence." The bass was also praised, with Robert saying it is "detailed and resolved, providing a clear sense of pitch".
Overall, the Silver 300 was said to be "a very well designed loudspeaker, built with an economy of scale that allows this level of performance to be offered at a reasonable price."
