Special Offer
This premium Gloss Black finished speaker package is greatly reduced. Absolutely brand new boxed, only a small number of packs available so get yourself a bona fide home cinema bargain.

Monitor Audio have made quite an impact in the sub £1000 speaker market with their extremely popular and impressive Vector range. Now in a 5.1 surround sound package included 4 x bookshelf V10 speakers, a V20 centre and a powerful VW8 subwoofer.

Even at its full retail price of £699.95, this pack really is deceiving for its price so at this special offer price it's a winner! The same technology used in their award-winning Radius range is at play here, with 4” MMP®II bass drivers complemented by a 1” gold C-CAM® dome tweeter to provide clarity and frequency response extending from 65Hz to well over 30kHz. The cabinets are constructed of a high density moulded polymer, ideal for creating a strong and rigid enclosure and finished with a ‘soft touch’ rubberised black skin, which lends a wonderfully novel and tactile quality to the product. The front baffles are of MDF, which are held in place with a single through-bolt driver fixing/ bracing method and are coated in a gloss black lacquer.

I have these speakers - paid the same price around Nov last year. They are fantastic quality and superb value. If you're in the market for a new speakers I this price range don't hesitate.

Thanks for the post. Stevief33 how did you mount yours? Wall or stands? any recommendations?

Cheers.

I also got these early last year. They really are stonking speakers - they produce results that beat speakers at four times this price.

I bought the proper Monitor wall brackets. They were £30 a pair at the time, but they really do work well.

I've also got these, Had them since January, Awesome set of speakers and you cannot get better for the price, HOT.

I too, bought the monitor audio brackets to go with mine. They look great and are very well made.

Voted hot on this deal as these speakers really are fantastic. Nothing touches them in quality at this price. These were originally £700-£800 when they released. Grab em while you still can people.

Thanks for the comments. Any audiophiles know if this would be a worthwhile upgrade from my Canton CD101s?

Gone for these instead of waiting forever for Richer Sounds to get the Tannoy TFXs back in stock.

Anyone recommend some good value front speaker stands for these?

Apologies fior not getting back earlier - only just caught up with the post. I went for the B-Tech brackets referred to above for my front speakers. Rears are just sitting on strategically placed pieces of furniture! I hope you decide to go for them - you wouldn't be disappointed.

These look good - but have you got the V20 hanging from one of these?

All of the speakers are quite heavy, but the V20 really is quite a weight. You'd need a very strong wall for these to safely hold it wouldn't you? The proper monitor brackets are pretty much the same, but have a much wider weight dispersal on the wall.

Not doubting it, just inquiring as I'm interested.

How do these compare to Wharfedales dx1 hcp?

How do these compare to Wharfedales dx1 hcp?



Can anyone answer this? Which would you go for at £300? The Wharfedale DX-1 or Monitor Audio Vectors?
