You see yourself as discerning, wanting to hear clear vocals and undistorted dynamics through the audio bandwidth. You want compact speakers that suit a minimalist interior, yet sound larger than they look. Your music is streamed from an iPad or mobile device, and you look beyond a soundbar and insist on decent sound from your TV.

The speakers are Monitor Audio Silver 50. Speakers are important. Monitor Audio builds these high-quality compact speakers from components higher up in their range to offer very exacting sound quality.
