Monitor Audio has announced the launch of the Platinum Series 3G a lineup that falls within Monitor Audio’s 50th Anniversary year. Tagged as an “object of desire” series, Monitor states ‘the series builds on Monitor Audio’s stated vision of bringing the listener closer to sonic and visual perfection, cementing Platinum Series 3G as true objects of desire; a visceral experience for the ears as well as the eyes, the range deepens the connection between listening and making audio human.”
Platinum Series 3G offers a choice of four premium models designed to satisfy both two-channel or multi-channel home theatre system configurations:
Platinum 300 3G – $22,000 pr
Platinum 200 3G – $17,500 pr
Platinum 100 3G – $8,500 pr
Platinum 250 3G – $7,500 ea
“Our flagship range encapsulates our desire to deliver accessible excellence. Superior, innovative acoustic technologies, smart engineering and obsessive attention to detail ensures the Platinum Series 3G is capable of the most accurate, clear, and lifelike sound, from a design that will stay significant for a lifetime.”
The series consists of the Platinum 100 3G stand mount, Platinum 200 3G mid-sized floor stander, and the formidable, flagship floor stander, the Platinum 300 3G. Each speaker works independently in a high-performance two-channel system, or, with the addition of the Platinum 250 3G centre-channel as part of a home theatre system.
Each model in the Platinum Series 3G features the new 3rd generation Micro Pleated Diaphragm (MPD III) high frequency transducer. Developed by Monitor Audio’s acoustic engineers when creating the company’s ‘Concept 50’ prototype. This tweeter was unveiled earlier this year for the company’s 50th anniversary celebrations.
“The MPD III introduces technology that reduces distortion and flattens the frequency response, while the optimised waveguide provides highly controlled directivity, improving both soundstage and sensitivity. This all leads to a larger, clearer, and more consistent sound, allowing the Platinum Series 3G to create the ultimate immersive experience: Music and film are delivered with incredible precision and clarity, introducing the listener to levels of accuracy and detail that they won’t have noticed before” states Monitor Audio/
Summary of key features:
3RD generation MPD III high-frequency transducers reduce distortion, flatten frequency response and lead to wider, cleaner more consistent and lifelike sound.
RDT III cone produces piston-like control even with the most extreme performances, providing a more precise, lifelike tonal balance and lower distortion.
Newly optimised mid-range drivers ensure a completely smooth frequency transition with the tweeter – ideal for AV/Theatre applications.
Carefully engineered crossovers ensure the most exact and controlled sound performance across full frequency spectrum.
Advanced cabinet design ensures total acoustic eco-system that works in harmony to deliver comprehensive and accurate delivery of lifelike sound.
Four models are available in three luxury finishes: Piano Black, Piano Ebony and Pure Satin White.
