The Monitor Audio Silver S2 is a “mid” size wonder. Standing at 14″ tall, 8″ wide and 10.5″ deep, the Silver S2 is a two-way reflex loaded speaker with a 1″ dome tweeter and a 7″ C-CAM aluminum-magnesium alloy woofer. Frequency response is a respectable 40Hz to 30KHz with a nominal impedance of 8 ohm and a sensitivity of 91dB. In the small to medium size room and mounted on a sturdy speaker stand, these speakers speak volumes that one would easy associate with larger monitor speakers. Highs were smooth and nicely rolled off with the mids richly textured, balanced and clearly appointed. Bass isn’t thunderous but had a full bodied presence that would fill most small and medium sized rooms adequately. In the mid level $2,000 system, the Silver S2 will suit admirably.
Cosmetically, the speakers look good. Minor scuff marks here and there but nothing major. The top shelf may need a bit of waxing to “moist” the dried surface but otherwise, the speakers look good overall. We don’t have the original packaging but can securely pack them for safe shipping.
