However you choose to configure them, they will propel the listener into a truly immersive and high-fidelity experience, allowing both music lovers and film aficionados to experience utter perfection.


Acoustic Innovation

Platinum Series 3G features a host of new technologies and design innovations.

Every model includes the new 3rd generation Micro Pleated Diaphragm (MPD III) high frequency transducer, developed by Monitor Audio’s acoustic engineers when creating the company’s ground-breaking ‘Concept 50’ prototype. The MPD III introduces innovative technology that reduces distortion and flattens the frequency response while the optimized waveguide provides highly controlled directivity, improving both soundstage and sensitivity. This all leads to a larger, clearer, and more consistent sound

The new 3rd generation Rigid Diaphragm Technology (RDT III) cone is employed on all Platinum Series 3G midrange and bass drivers. Super light, yet super strong, the RDT III cone works like a perfect piston, and when coupled to the latest optimized and contoured cone surround and black spider it allows the Platinum Series 3G mid and bass drivers to boast the lowest distortion of any speaker in Monitor Audio’s history. 

New dedicated mid-range drivers have been included on the Platinum 200 3G, Platinum 300 3G and Platinum 250 3G models and feature several significant enhancements that help to create a smoother transition across the frequency range and deliver a more consistent crossover with the MPD III tweeter. Adding Monitor Audio’s innovative Dynamic Coupling Filter (DCF) mechanism helps control cone breakup, while there are also larger more powerful Neodymium magnets, a new motor-system, an underhung edge-wound voice-coil and improved power handling.

Intricately calculated mid-range driver enclosures reduce internal standing waves for much improved overall clarity within the midrange, making vocals and minute details incredibly precise and lifelike.

Upgraded bass drivers feature large-diameter edge-wound underhung voice-coils, therefore creating exceptional power-handling. These new voice-coils allow higher and more linear excursion of the driver, resulting in wider dynamic range with greater control, resulting in impressive levels of tight, impactful bass.

System Design

The all-new cabinets are available in three beautifully rich, contemporary finishes: Piano Ebony, Piano Black, and Pure White Satin. The unique curved front profile reduces diffraction, while also looking elegant, as do the new aluminum driver frames, which beneath the surface boast tension rods that secure the drivers to the cabinet – creating a cabinet that is almost completely inert and vibration free. Precision engineered outrigger feet complete the acoustic system design approach and form a solid platform for floor standing models, while also offering a more elegant aesthetic compared to a cumbersome plinth.

Platinum Series 3G perfects the art of high-fidelity sound, within a system package that exemplifies cutting-edge, acoustic innovation and premium design. The result is spine-tingling levels of performance. Each Platinum Series 3G model truly is an object of desire.
