Key features

New drivers"新型ユニット"

Monitor Audio’s ground-breaking ‘dimpled’ RSTR (Rigid Surface Technology) cone profile isfurther refined with Finite Element Analysis to provide smoother response and reduced break-up. The C-CAMR (Ceramic Coated Aluminium/Magnesium) material further refined with Finite Element Analysis to provide smoother response and reduced break-up. The C-CAMR (Ceramic Coated Aluminium/Magnesium) material employed by the renowned Monitor Audio gold dome tweeter is an innovative alloy originally developed by the aerospace industry for jet engine design. The C-CAMR tweeter devised for GS will remain rigid and operate more like a pure piston up to 43kHz. High frequency performance is propelled to another level.

10 \252,000(\240,000/税別)/pair/標準在庫色(ローズウッド&チェリー)

The GS10 re-writes the book on compact monitor performance, easily eclipsing the dazzling standard set by its predecessor, the GR10. It may be small, but the GS10 showcases the multiple talents that make the Gold Signature series so remarkable. With its advanced, low-resonance drivers, rigid build and contoured cabinet edges, the GS10 re-defines accurate, low-colouration sound in a compact, stylish stand-mount and bookshelf speaker. Using the new, low distortion 6 1/2-inch RSTR2 bassmid driver and gold C-CAMR tweeter developed especially for the GS series, the GS10 is capable of true 3-D imaging and tonal accuracy. To keep the GS10 and GS-LCR looking and performing at their best, a beautifully engineered stand is available, having the same die-cast alloy footprint as a GS20. The solid, stable speaker platform has integral rubber contact points for improved isolation and a discreet cable management system ensures that trailing cables remain out of sight. Slim and elegant, the GS stand will maximise the considerable sonic and aesthetic virtues of these GS designs.

The massively accomplished GR20 was a hard act to
follow, but its successor, the GS20, pulls decisively ahead in all respects, combining gorgeous aesthetics, sublime sonics and superlative build quality. Its two-and-a-half way, three driver configuration is built around a unique dual-cavity cabinet design, in which the 6 1/2-inch RSTR2 bass and bass-mid drivers work into separate enclosures, tuned to different frequencies and impedances. This provides improved power handling and delivers faster, deeper, more dynamic bass and greater transparency through the crucial mid-range. Above that, the gold C-CAMR tweeter ensures a smooth, detailed sound all the way up to 43 kHz, exploiting the full potential of the latest wide-bandwidth digital formats.

LCR \189,000(\180,000/税別)/pc/標準在庫色(ローズ・ウッド)

Amazing as it may seem, a centre speaker may be required to reproduce over 60% of the entire output of a film sound-track. This means that it must deliver the dramatic impact of explosions and sound effects as precisely as it recreates the many tonal subtleties of dialogue. The outstanding dynamic reach and generous power handling of the Gold Signature LCR speaker allow it to master the most dynamic drive conditions with ease and still have something in reserve. Monitor Audio has optimised the design to provide accuracy and control over a wide listening area while preserving the exact tonal signature and balance of the GS Series. This means that the GS-LCR will integrate perfectly with any of the speakers in the Gold Signature range.

Monitor Audio Gold Signature intro brochure

Monitor Audio can take you from the loudest explosion to the softest whisper in a heartbeat. Deliver passion with precision. Connect you directly to music's emotional heart. We believe you should never settle for a contrived image when you can have absolute, true-to-life clarity.Nor should you settle for cutting-edge technical innovation without meticulous craftsmanship. Which is why Monitor Audio is synonymous with material and sonic excellence around the world.

Even so, we've never made a loudspeaker as good as this. After over 30 years’ experience at raising the bar for the world’s most demanding consumers, Monitor Audio introduces Gold Signature, a new flagship range that reaches unprecedented standards of design, innovation, performance, technical excellence, build quality and value in its class.

Key technologies.

Anti-resonance build

The cast aluminium GS drive unit chassis are held rigidly in place by clamp plates made from a low-resonance combination of die-cast aluminium and zinc. All the components provide a high degree of resonance cancellation and damping. We’ve employed the time-honoured quality of traditional tongue-and-groove jointing to provide acabinet construction, which is inherently strong and rigid, enhanced by extensive vertical and radial internal bracing.

Second generation RST drivers

Monitor Audio's groundbreaking 'dimpled' Rigid Surface Technology (RST) cone profile is further refined with computer Finite Element Analysis to provide smoother response and reduced break-up. For the first time in a loudspeaker, RST is applied to the renowned C-CAM gold dome tweeter. High frequency performance is propelled to another level.

New look

Smooth, radiussed edges and selected premium quality wood veneers on all surfaces give the GS range a sumptuous yet strikingly clean and modern appearance (piano black and piano silver gloss finishes are available at extra cost). GS20 and GS60 feature a rigid cast aluminium plinth with a discreet aerofoil profile and easy-to-adjust integral machined metal spikes/feet.

Attention to detail

New die-cast alloy cable terminal panels are located low down on the GS20 and GS60 for easy access and neater cable runs. Ribbed reflex port construction improves on previous design by reducing turbulence and increasing the speed of the airflow through the port, resulting in faster, cleaner bass attack.

 The new gold standard

GS10

With its advanced, low-resonance drivers, rigid build and contouredcabinet edges, GS10 redefines accurate, low-colouration sound in a compact, stylish stand-mount speaker. Using the new, low distortion 6.0-inch RST bass-mid driver and RST profile gold C-CAM tweeter developed specially for the GS series, the GS10 is capable of true 3-D imaging and tonal accuracy to rival the best reference studio monitors.

 

GS20

In its day, the GR20 was hailed as a massively accomplished design at its price point. A hard act to follow, but its successor, the GS20, pulls decisively ahead in performance, value, good looks and sheer desirability. Its two and a half way, three-driver configuration is built around unique dual-cavitycabinet design: 6-inch RST bass and bass-mid drivers work into separate enclosures, tuned to differential frequency points and different impedances to increase power handling and virtually eliminate distortion.

The RST profile gold C-CAM tweeter ensures a smooth, detailed response all the way up to 30 kHz, exploiting the full potential of the latest wide-bandwidth digital formats.

 

GS60

The elegantly proportioned, three-way GS60 currently represents the state of Monitor Audio's art. Its performance really is "as close as it gets" to the master recording.

Developing the discrete cavity technology of the GS20, the four-driver GS60 recreates the deep bass and authentic scale of a performance, bringing lifelike power, dynamics and realism to music and film. Yet its tall, slender appearance is anything but overpowering. Like all models in the Gold Signature range, the flagship GS60 is a monument to thecabinet-maker's art: immaculate real wood or piano gloss finishes are blended with modern industrial design and superb attention to detail.

 

The best A/V speaker systems demand exceptional performance from every component. The strength of Gold Signature's design and engineering makes it easy to assemble a high quality five or seven channel loudspeaker system that’s perfect for any room. Sharing driver, crossover andcabinet technologies, the GS speakers will provide exceptional tonal accuracy, transparency and wide bandwidth response in any combination, transcending the experience of sound through two channels to generate a tangible sense of ‘being there’.

 

GS-FX

The GSFX is a completely new design from Monitor Audio with an advanced triple mode configuration to accommodate a range of surround applications. Its slim-profiled angled baffle design incorporates no fewer than three driver pairs. When used purely as a side or rear speaker, its front-firing array of 6-inch RST bass/mid driver and RST gold C-CAM tweeter (GS-10) come into play, delivering accurate wide bandwidth audio to complement the front-firing GS speakers perfectly. Its innovative multi-function design however, allows it to act as two separate speakers when in bi-pole mode, reproducing side and rear effects through two pairs of 4-inch RST bass/mid and RST gold C-CAM tweeters, positioned on the angled baffles. In dipole mode it uses these driver combinations in opposite phase to provide a wonderfully diffuse yet tonally accurate surround sound effect.

The GS-FX enclosure is finished in a full range of premium wood veneers for a perfect match with any of the speakers In the GS range.

GS-LCR

A beautiful voice

A centre speaker is often required to produce over 60% of the entire sound output and, therefore, must be able to faithfully reproduce explosions and sound effects as well as it does clear, tonally accurate dialogue. The outstanding dynamic reach and generous power handling of the Gold Signature LCR means that it can cope with the most demanding inputs and always have something in reserve.New design ideas have been employed to optimise accuracy, control and dispersion over a wide listening area. And it has the exact tonal signature and balance to integrate “invisibly” with any of the speakers in the Gold Signature range. 

GSW-12

Depth charge

The new GSW-12 ushers in an exciting new era of sub-woofer design from Monitor Audio, redefining standards of performance, versatility and ease of installation in one compact, stunningly potent enclosure.

At the heart of the GSW-12 is a new Class D 1000 watt amplifier that has been designed from scratch using new techniques in Switch-mode power conversion. Coupled with a new, high power 12-inch C-CAM driver, this supersub achieves astonishing low frequency power, speed and extension you can feel as well as hear, the bandwidth reaching all the way down to a ground-shaking 18 Hz. You'll feel the visceral impact of the loudest blockbusters as never before and also appreciate the agility of the slickest jazz combo.

User flexibility is second to none. All of the GSW-12's inputs and outputs can be configured - via the top plate control panel or remote handset - to operate with a direct connection or programmable filter settings, or both. For instance, it can be connected to a stereo hi-fi amplifier using programmed filter/volume settings and to the dedicated LFE output of a dedicated A/V amp where no filtering is required. A balanced input is provided for long cable runs or in situations where a professional grade connection is required.

And, being Monitor Audio, the GSW-12's enclosure incorporates the highest standards of build and finish (lustrous piano black or sumptuous real wood veneers) on the market
