Gold 100 Wins EISA Award!
Posted on August 19 2019
We are very excited and proud to announce that Monitor Audio's Gold 100 has received a prestigious EISA award and has been selected as their Best Bookshelf Loudspeaker of the Year 2019-20.
The EISA (European Imaging and Sound Association) judging panel is comprised of a team of global experts from 55 magazines published in 29 countries. EISA represents the largest editorial collaboration in the world of consumer electronics and has been celebrating the very best technology products for over 35 years.
"Building on decades of success in speakers both small and large, the Monitor Audio Gold 100 is a bookshelf/standmount design with a big sound that belies its compact dimensions. Featuring the latest version of the company’s C-CAM driver technology, using a composite ceramic/aluminium magnesium construction for lightness and rigidity, it sounds fast, detailed and powerful, with excellent integration between the drive units, and surprisingly deep and tuneful bass. Add in Monitor Audio’s meticulous construction and beautiful choice of finishes, and you have a truly superior compact speaker design."
More Awards For Gold
In addition to the EISA Award, Monitor Audio's Gold Series continues to gain further acclaim with three new awards from multiple sources.
The Gold 300 speakers have received the 'Editor's Choice' award from Hi-Fi Choice Magazine. In the 5 STAR review, David Vivian said the MPD tweeter "delivers openness, clarity, fine detail and harmonic structure". He also commented on the midrange, stating that "the midband is beautifully voiced and exquisitely clean with vanishingly low colouration and cabinet contribution".

The Gold 100 speakers have received the 'Outstanding Product' award from Hi-Fi News!
In his fantastic review, James Parker says the Gold 100s "deliver a performance that belies their size". He went on to say, "it creates a refined, precisely focused sound with lovely integration, and even covers its lack of absolute bass with a combination of speed and punch".
Commenting on the MDP tweeter, James said, "not only does it give an impression of pin-point image focus, across a wider than usual listening area, but it also sounds open and airy without ever straying into forwardness".

The Gold 300 5.1 system received an incredible review from Home Cinema Choice, and even received their 'Best Buy' award!
In his 5 STAR review, David Vivian said, "It’s rare to find a 5.1 speaker system that combines slam and subtlety quite as skillfully as this one (not to mention wrapping it up in gorgeous enclosures). It’s a distinctly high-end presentation, and one that serves your Blu-ray blockbusters and music collection well".

Monitor Audio Gold Series
Uncompromised in concept, construction and sound, the Gold Series has been designed to deliver performance to enjoy for a lifetime. Each of the six models in the Gold Series has been painstakingly designed and meticulously constructed by a team of dedicated engineers and craftsmen.
For the first time, Gold features the technology used in Monitor Audio's flagship Platinum II loudspeakers. The Platinum II drivers have been specially 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.
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 their stunning looks, premium feel and high-end sound, the Gold series offers a fulfillment for the senses. Their performance is articulate, clear, smooth and easy on the ear. Everything that one would expect from a Monitor Audio speaker.
