Beautiful Monitor Audio MA-1200 "Gold" full-range speakers, finished in furniture grade real wood veneer.
Fully British-made and featuring a 26mm polyamide suspended gold metal dome tweeter with a silky smooth, yet detailed and warm sound.
We listened to a wide variety of genres and all sounded great but our favorite turned out to be jazz as the speakers have an affinity for the tenor sax and husky female vocalists. We found that for a lot of material we even preferred them to more modern designs from Monitor Audio in the same (original) price range.
They have a British flavor but are not overly "polite". These speakers can slam if you ask them to!
The base can be filled with varying levels of sand to adjust bass response. There is a small rear port and we didn't find the speakers picky about placement distance from the wall. They also continued to image quite well off-axis.
Classic, speakers with a wonderfully inviting sound that will look great in your room too!
