Monitor Audio Platinum PL200 Series II


Price: £6300 a pair

The first floor standing loudspeaker in Monitor Audio's flagship Platinum range is the compact PL200 Series II. It’s unlikely you’ll discover a more persuasive speaker than the PL100 II in its price class, but compare the floor-standing PL200 II with its smaller sibling and immediately you’ll notice the effect of four drivers in a larger cabinet. Such is the quality of Platinum II’s engineering that the character of the sound remains powerfully consistent and expressive, but with the addition of a second 6.5” RDT®II driver, the PL200 II’s bass has more weight, while its dedicated 4” RDT II midrange driver brings further definition to vocals and strings. Through the PL200 II, subtle textures are more vividly described and every note rendered with greater authority. It’s a factor of scale. Platinum II’s class-leading accuracy is a given, you simply need to match it with the size of your room.

As with other Platinum speakers, the PL200's innovatively shaped and braced cabinet is finished in a choice of exotic lacquered Santos Rosewood and Ebony natural wood veneers, and in a rich piano black lacquer. The front baffle is upholstered in high quality leather.
