Introducing Monitor Audio at GHT Group
Another Great Speaker Brand Joins the Fold
The British seem to have a way with hi-fi audio. Brands like Bowers & Wilkins, KEF, Meridian, NAD, Linn, and others are renowned for engineering and craftsmanship in the field of audio reproduction. Another brand that sometimes doesn’t get as much mention - but should - is Monitor Audio.
For over 40 years, Monitor Audio has been building a complete range of speakers for home audio, which today encompasses 16 product ranges from custom install to high-end home theater speakers. Like most British audio makers, they have their unique slice of expertise that they apply to their speaker designs.
Monitor Audio is one of the world's foremost experts in crafting speaker drivers from metal, which is not the easiest material to fashion into an audio transducer. For example, the RDT (Rigid Diaphragm Technology) in the Platinum speaker cones is made from ceramic-coated aluminum/magnesium in the front skin, with carbon fiber in the back. This high-tech combination of materials results in a speaker that responds to transitions quickly with ultra-low distortions, which all translates to better sound.
GHT Group is proud to be one of Monitor Audio’s select dealers in the Atlanta area, adding to our extensive collection of high-end speakers for hi-fi and home theater. Read on to learn more about the unique aspects of Monitor Audio speakers.
Quality Sound at Every Price Point
Part of Monitor Audio’s mission is to deliver superior sound quality at price points all the way down to the very affordable. The new Monitor line is a case in point. This series employs some of the same technology you may find in more expensive series, such as lightweight aluminum/magnesium in the dome tweeter. The orange translucent MMP (Metal Matrix Polymer) driver cones add performance with unique style, adding panache to your mid-century aesthetic.
At the high end of the speaker spectrum, the Platinum II line delivers everything you would expect in a speaker with outstanding accuracy, clarity, and dynamics. The Platinum PL500 II is an excellent example of Monitor Audio’s engineering expertise. It has four 8-inch long throw bass drivers and two 4-inch midrange drivers, both made with RDT composition. The Micro Pleated Diaphragm high-frequency transducer is the company's ultra-refinement of a ribbon tweeter design that offers fast, accurate, and fatigue-free high-frequency reproduction, even at reference-level volumes. The beautiful rosewood or piano black finishes and the hand-tooled Scottish leather front baffle complete the look as elegant as the sound. For both two-channel music and home cinema, the entire Platinum series delivers the ultimate audio experience.
Custom Install Line
If you like the sound of Monitor Audio, you’ll be happy to know you can have it throughout your property. The company has an extensive range of architectural speakers, with in-ceiling, in-wall, on-wall, and outdoor models. The SoundFrame on-wall speaker is a unique choice, where the grill cloth can be customized via a library of high-resolution photos or your own for a piece of audio equipment that doubles as art.
If you want the best sound quality but don’t like the idea of visible speakers, the Platinum In-Wall II borrows the high-end engineering and driver materials of the Platinum PL-500 and fits them into a slim in-wall speaker that will blend seamlessly into your home theater or listening room. These speakers are so well built that Monitor Audio offers a lifetime warranty on them.
To make it easier to design the perfect custom audio solution in your home, Monitor Audio makes its products available in the CEDIA designer manufacturer database. This means GHT Group can quickly and accurately design a home theater with the full range of Monitor Audio speakers, including multi-speaker Dolby Atmos and DTS:X immersive sound. The software computes seating distances, power requirements, and much more, making it far easier to design fully custom home cinemas and listening rooms of the highest caliber.
