Monitor Audio Gold 300 5G Floorstander
Brand Monitor Audio
Monitor Audio has melded the finest materials and decades of loudspeaker know-how to lovingly create their new Gold series of loudspeakers. Rich in both tone and build quality, the speakers have been carefully crafted to last a lifetime.
Every detail of design has been refined to create an exquisite range of loudspeakers that bring a sense of luxury to any room. Painstakingly assembled by Monitor Audio’s team of craftsmen, each Gold speaker is beautifully finished to ensure that their combination of premium audio technology and class-leading build quality delivers a compelling hi-fi and home cinema listening experience.
The rounded vertical edges of the cabinets combined with the sharp profile of the horizontal lines give a classic and timeless appearance. A soft touch panel on the top of the speakers (stand mount and floorstanding) adds a further sophisticated appeal to the Gold series. With a choice of ultra-smooth premium finishes (dark walnut or ebony real wood veneer and piano gloss black or satin white), the loudspeakers exude a graceful style wherever they are positioned.
For the first time, Gold features the technology used in Monitor Audio’s flagship Platinum II loudspeakers. The Platinum II drivers have been especially re-developed and honed for Gold and they are secured inside the well-damped cabinets using Monitor Audio’s renowned single bolt mechanism to give a clean appearance.
With their stunning looks, premium feel and high-end sound, the Gold series offers a fulfilment for the senses. Their performance is articulate, clear, smooth and easy on the ear. Everything that one would expect from a Monitor Audio speaker.
With low frequencies being accurately delivered (down to a seismic 30 Hz, and high frequencies reaching beyond 50 kHz) this is a truly wide-band speaker designed for every possible listening requirement - each nuance and detail in a recording is delivered with sublime accuracy.
The Gold 300 is recommended for larger rooms and requires at least 30 cm between the speaker and wall to allow the system to breathe and perform optimally.
