Bottom Line:   
The Monitor Audio Gold GX 200 is for sure one of the best values in the price range up to 7000 $ or even more. It's one of the most elegant designs of today's loudspeakers and beautifully veneered. Bass performance is simply one of the best I've ever experienced, both tight and remarkably deep. The medium spectrum ist very open and packed with details. Just neutral at its best. Highs are in the same league, very informative and sparkling - but not aggressive (unless you use very bad recordings). Summed up, you get a precise, very entertaining sound that is both "fast" and natural, offering an almost "live" caracter. If there's a "but", you could name the soundstage, that is more laterally present than very deep. Goes for all kinds of music. For example, a revelation for techno sound, but also ......... classic ! A real allrounder ! The good news is that the successor model (same size), the new Gold 200 is yet more homogeneous, with yet increased precision and improved imaging (= deeper soundstage). Just avoid harsh and forward sounding equipment and cables, then you can't go wrong. Should be neutral or slightly warm stuff and precise in any case. And allow a long running-in time !

Bottom Line:   
During all the tests and research I did for finding my new home Loudspeaker, the Monitor Audio GX200 came across my way.

I had occasion to hear this speaker on some different sets. Naim supernaits, Naim Nait5si, Roksan caspian M2 and a Rotel pre+power amp chain goes trhough him.

I was really disappointed of the performance he gave back then. Clearly, when the GX200 was playing, the sound looses some air around the speaker, some emotions and although details was lost in the process. The result seemed flatter. A quick check with other speakers confirmed that.

This speaker will not show you music as deep as others will allow you, and for the heavy price you have to pay for it in EU, this is a little bit of a disappointment.

I although saw that, in Europe, some salesman of Monitor Audio are posting fake reviews on internet portals. This is just a shame.
