Brand New - Latest Model
For over a decade, Minuet speakers have set up a new level of performance for compact sized monitors regardless of price.
This year, Silverline Audio has successfully bettered the already close to perfect Minuet speakers. The result is the Minuet Grand. This new speaker is equipped with our latest drivers and an enhanced crossover network.
The new mid-woofer has an amazing long excursion as well as high power handling capability. It comes with a 5.25-inch treated paper cone housed in a rigid die cast aluminum basket, delivering incredible dynamics and high definition. The over-sized magnet motor and the humongous voice coil allow it to handle high current effortlessly and precisely.
The new ultralight weight titanium diaphragm tweeter provides superb transparency and is more airy. The imaging is awesome thanks to the special magnetic fluid and over-sized heat sink for effective heat dispersion. The tweeter enhances it sensitivity and amazing power handling.
No matter what system you are currently using, you will need to try a pair of Minuet Grand and let your wild imagination guide you.

Jana's First Afternoon at the Show

In the Audio SUMMA room, I was supremely impressed by the new Silverline Audio Minuet Grand Monitors ($1999/pair), which were premiering at the show. They sat atop adjustable speaker stands by Core Audio Designs ($1275), and driven by an upgraded 50Wpc, class-A Brown Electronic Labs BEL 1001 Mk.V ($7995—not available till 2018), using a Denon DN951A CD player (not for sale) as a source and a Silverline C-1 stereo preamplifier (not for sale). Also included: a Sound Application powerline conditioner ($18,000), isolation components by Symposium Acoustics, interconnects and speaker cables by BEL, and power cords by Furutech Cables.
Silverline's energetic Alan Yun played us a wide variety of tracks off of CDs that demonstrated the range and capability of the Minuet Grands. The sound was orderly with a nice bite—surprising for their size. At one point, he exclaimed, "I'm playing Mahler! No one plays Mahler at these shows!" emphasizing the difficulty of reproducing Mahler painlessly.
For $1999, the Minuet Grands are an excellent deal. I only wish that it would've been possible to hear them paired with more affordable components, perhaps in a system totaling under $5000.
