the monitor reference series in designing the monitor mr series monitor audio has not so much raised the bar as propelled it to a new dimension we ve taken the hugely successful awardwinning bronze reference series back to the blue print and re-tuned optimising every detail to re-define our meaning of entry-level equipped to compete with many more expensive offerings from rival brands and capable of jaw-dropping audio resolution in two-channel and multi-channel systems aesthetically it s a class a part as well utilising a stunning pearlescent vinyl finish and vastly improved terminal panels the six slender monitor reference models are gorgeous to look at and effortlessly easy to live with setting our new benchmark for style performance and value the monitor mr series elevates in every way the reference standard for entrylevel loudspeaker design a potent new listening experience is released performancetechnicalexcellenceinnovationsuperioraestheticdesign
the evolution of a thoroughbred range new c-cam® tweeter advanced software simulation has allowed us to optimise the tweeter design bringing higher sensitivity and wider bandwidth to reveal the finest high frequency detail all the way up to 30khz we ve developed a sophisticated new tweeter chamber with graduated damping which controls undesirable resonances for a smoother more accurate response new mmp® bass drivers using a combination of detailed fea analysis and improved material specification we ve developed a new stronger driver chassis together with a more precise motor system for greater accuracy and deeper faster bass the new chassis topology reduces unwanted rear reflections and the refined motor system allows the driver a far greater excursion without distortion the drivers are individually designed and optimised for each mr loudspeaker new mmp® mid-range drivers the mr mid-range driver incorporates the pointed metal phase dome utilised by our award-winning rs series speakers lending greater concentric rigidity to the voice-coil this innovation greatly improves on and off-axis response in the critical mid-range region for life-like timbre and voices shorter voice coils and more agile motor assemblies give the drivers an improved transient response and higher overall efficiency new finishes a choice of rich black oak and a pearlescent vinyl finish in walnut lift the quality and look of the monitor mr range beyond anything in its price class so exceptional are the new uk produced finishes that it is difficult to tell them apart from real wood veneers new crossovers crossover design has been refined for each system using high quality components skilfully arranged to reduce distortion for clean signal transfer the new pcb layouts incorporating new laminated steel core inductors and audiophile-grade polypropylene capacitors keep signal paths as short as possible while isolating the components themselves from cross interaction and mutual coupling improved cabinet and terminal panel design the floor-standing mr4 and mr6 models have discrete internal chambers providing an optimised air-load for their bass and bass/mid-range drivers giving improved efficiency and midrange clarity a new `out-rigger design for the footings of the mr4 and mr6 offers greater stability and aesthetic effect while a new high-quality terminal panel blends easy access with high-end functionality and appearance monitoraudio.com
the diminutive mr1 allows you to enjoy high quality sound in the smallest spaces you ll fall in love with its agile rhythmic performance and its liberating versatility while retaining the compact dimensions of its br1 predecessor this reference compact monitor delivers superior bandwidth and better linearity so you hear more music with greater definition than ever before the two-way mr1 utilises a single 5.5 mmp® ii bass driver and 1 c-cam® tweeter within a system optimised for genuine fidelity wherever you place it in the home an evolution of the multi-award winning br2 the mr2 tunes the considerable talents of its forerunner to a new intensity improved crossover and driver designs combine to re-calibrate the capabilities of an acknowledged class champion bringing greater dynamic expression mid-range clarity and lower distortion to lovers of music and film sound loaded with a 6.5 mmp® ii bass driver and 1 c-cam® tweeter the mr2 s high quality cabinet mirrors the unobtrusive dimensions of the celebrated br2 and so is easy to position even in smaller rooms compact in size but equipped to reproduce sound of immense stature and detail the mr2 represents a stunning advance from every angle monitoraudio.com
reflecting the spirit and ambition of the monitor reference range the mr4 is a wholesale re-working of the established br4 floor-standing model we ve slimmed down the cabinet for a more desirable profile replacing the larger drivers of the br4 with potent 6.5 bass and bass/mid-range designs which provide a remarkable blend of punch deep bass extension and control the mr4 s 2 1/2-way system is optimised by utilising an integral structure of dedicated driver chambers hitherto employed exclusively by our more expensive loudspeakers benefiting from additional cross-bracing the mr4 s cabinet is especially rigid liberating its sound from the boxy colourations that afflict lesser designs the result is an astonishing mix of clarity exuberance and power from a deceptively slender loudspeaker which transcends the conventional understanding of `entry-level the most distinguished and compelling of them all the mr6 adds effortless authority to the long list of monitor reference virtues embraced by a beautifully slim floor standing cabinet the mr6 s 2 1/2-way system comprises a 1 c-cam® tweeter supported by two 6.5 mmp®ii bass drivers and a single 6.5 mmp®ii bass/mid-range driver mounted within dedicated chambers its powerful driver complement and sophisticated cabinet structure work together to lend performances an immense sense of scale and muscularity while revealing the finest high frequency detail the mr6 s elegant proportions and excellent aesthetic qualities will blend unobtrusively with décor but its sonic abilities are sure to make an enduring impact.

for the mr centre we ve demolished the limitations of entry-level design by creating a speaker that not only reproduces voice with unfailing accuracy but extends this performance to accommodate bass frequencies as well this means the mr centre will perform brilliantly as a centre and surround speaker underpinned by the mrw-10 subwoofer its system of twin 5.5 mmp®ii drivers 1 c-cam® tweeter and upgraded crossover matches perfectly with the system architecture of other mr series speakers for pin-point imaging at any location the mrw-10 subwoofer represents a significant step up from its predecessor the highly regarded asw100 it s as compact as its forerunner but more potent in every respect a new 10 mmp®ii driver and 100 watt class-d power amplifier have been devised in tandem to provide class-leading standards of control speed and punch featuring a new fully integrated switch mode power supply the new amplifier develops fifty percent more power than ts predecessor adding grip and clean bass delivery below 30hz a choice of two beautiful finishes complement its accomplished deep bass performance with superlative looks monitoraudio.com
monitor reference av systems nothing quite beats the sensory excitement generated when audio and video are expertly combined a blend of matched high performance driver technology exceptional build quality and gorgeous matching finishes is the recipe for surround sound magic from the five-channel monitor reference systems their wide-band response and low distortion topology will resolve the clarity of multi-channel dvd-a and sacd and the brilliant detail of even the most complex film soundtracks liberating the chilling suspense of subtle effects as well as the full-blown impact of action scenes the compact mr2av system marries the mr2 speakers with the mrcentre and the awesome mrw-10 active subwoofer the mr4av adds the big sound of the mr4 to the same mix of surround speakers to impart in depth the dramatic texture and thrilling energy of every performance.
