The new gold standard for speaker performance
I've been in the audio gear business most of my life, so it takes a lot to impress me. But when I took home a pair of Monitor Audio's previous generation Gold GX100 bookshelf speakers for a quick weekend audition, they simply blew me away. That weekend turned into a three month music and movie marathon. (I just couldn't make myself bring them back. Sorry.) They delivered so much of what I value in a speaker — speed, transparency, low-level detail, 3D imaging, and a deep, wide soundstage that extends way outside the physical boundaries of the speaker. In other words, all the things that make recorded music seem so real you can almost reach out and touch it.
Now Monitor has introduced the Gold 100, a bookshelf model that replaces the GX100s that I admired so much. The Gold 100 builds upon the GX100's already impressive design by adding refinements that enhance performance, while retaining all of the goodness that made those speakers so exceptional. I can't wait to take these babies home for a weekend (or three).
