The Monitor Audio Gold GX 200 is for sure one of the best values in the price range up to 7000 $ or even more. It's one of the most elegant designs of today's loudspeakers and beautifully veneered. Bass performance is simply one of the best I've ever experienced, both tight and remarkably deep. The medium spectrum ist very open and packed with details. Just neutral at its best. Highs are in the same league, very informative and sparkling - but not aggressive (unless you use very bad recordings). Summed up, you get a precise, very entertaining sound that is both "fast" and natural, offering an almost "live" caracter. If there's a "but", you could name the soundstage, that is more laterally present than very deep. Goes for all kinds of music. For example, a revelation for techno sound, but also ......... classical works ! A real allrounder ! The good news is that the successor model (same size), the new Gold 200 is yet more homogeneous, with yet increased precision and improved imaging (= deeper soundstage, which seems now to be perfect). Just avoid harsh sounding equipment and cables, then you shouldn't go wrong. Must be neutral or slightly warm stuff and precise in any case. And allow a long running-in time !

Pregnant brand new and already immense pleasure of listening to one NaimUniti coupled. Pregnant surprised by the level and quality of serious given the size. Acute and medium rich, captivating sound and very realistic. Sound very clear and yet not aggressive. The voices are especially poignant, and stamps are fully respected.
Unlike a previous opinion, I pray that monitor audio not revisit its copy.
They are expensive but considering the quality of manufacturing non-standard and amazing sound reproduction, this is an excellent investment.
I have not been perfect since I am told they will be even better in 100 hours of listening ))
Now, is that the combined amp + source were not his cup of tea? One thing is certain, the GX200 Monitor has quickly pulled together the bottom. Dynamic medium, few micro-detail with a tendency to iron grades, side air nonexistent, width of the soundstage frankly average. Its a fairly flat throughout that I was not at all packed. Only good thing, the sharp, natural and downright sweet, never aggressive. But, as I noticed, not as aggressive when it should be. Suggesting an adjustment too "nice" of its designers. In view of 2900 and requested a few dollars, it's clearly too much for an enclosure barely better than a good entry level. However the finish was good and the quality seemed to be at the rendezvous. Monitor the audio to cut out and should review their copy quickly before others realize that they serve us hay.
No hay for me, I already ate thank you!
3) For that price, we must not mess. And there it pretty kidding.
