Monitor Audio Gold 100 5G Bookshelf
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.
The powerful bass driver utilises a 50 mm diameter voice coil, which yields huge power handling capability. The larger radiating surface area of this voice coil ensures heat is radiated away much quicker than in a typical driver to give a stronger performance.
Gold 100 can produce incredibly powerful low frequencies for its size and is composed at all times. The driver is well-damped and the cabinet is incredibly rigid and well braced, to deliver a supremely accurate tonal reproduction. The HiVe II port has been located on the rear of the cabinet to give a compact size and a clean appearance.
