We are delighted to have taken Monitor Audio’s award winning Platinum series loudspeakers on to demonstration. We have the PL200 mk2 floorstanding speakers in Rosewood in store now. The Cos D1 DAC/Pre and Benchmark AHB2 power amp have proven to be a sweet sounding combination that we have no reservation in recommending. The PL200’s are exceptionally well finished, the gloss lacquer seems to glow in the sunlight while the leather baffles stop the visual feast overpowering the sonic one.
From unboxing, through setup, running in and onto listening we have been continually impressed with this range of speakers. The boxes and packing are first rate, the supplied accessories allow for spiked or rubber cushioned feet helping fit the speakers into any living environment. The sound was immediately impressive and only improved with the more time they have had to sing. Even the grilles have been well thought out and compliment the minimal aesthetic, the magnetic grille removal tool was a pleasant surprise in the accessories box to.
