Monitor Audio Introduces The Monitor MR Series

Monitor Reference Series looks to build on the strengths of the former series with improved cabinetry, components and ultimately the performance.

Monitor Audio are proud to announce the release of the new affordable Monitor Reference Series. After a successful run with the M Series, the Monitor Reference Series looks to build on the strengths of the former series with improved cabinetry, components and ultimately the performance. And while the product range has improved immensely, the pricing has not!


Monitor MR1

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, the MR1 delivers superior bandwidth and improved linearity, so you hear more music with greater definition than ever before. The two-way MR1 utilizes 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.

Monitor MR2

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 it's easy to position, even in smaller rooms.

Monitor MR4

The MR4 has a svelte cabinet profile, housing a 1" C-CAM® tweeter and potent 6.5" bass and bass/mid-range driver designs in a 2 1/2-way system of dedicated driver chambers, reinforced by comprehensive cabinet bracing to provide a remarkable blend of punch, deep bass extension and control. Overall frequency response is typically flat and this neutral balance is augmented by an extended, well-defined bass performance. The floor-level mounted terminal panel allows for easy access and avoids unnecessary trailing cable lengths.

Monitor MR Center

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.

Monitor MRW-10

The MRW-10 subwoofer uses a 10" MMP® II driver and 100 Watt Class-D power amplifier, devised in tandem to provide superior standards of control, speed and punch. Featuring a fully integrated switch mode power supply complete with an auto-ranging voltage input, the amplifier adds grip and clean bass delivery below 30Hz.
