MASS from Monitor Audio is the little speaker package with the huge sound. The five small but weighty satellite speakers create an audio experience thats dynamically thrilling, yet delivers on clarity. This 5.0 system is ideal for partnering with the subwoofer of your choice.

The MASS System includes four substantial MASS 10 satellite speakers and the MASS Centre Speaker, which its atop a rubber base to isolate itself from sound-decrading vibrations.  Also available separately are the MASS Wall brackets to mount any of the satellite speakers, or even the thoughtfully-designed pre-wired floorstands which the MASS speakers can be fixed to for an alternative option.

  • Tick Ultra-compact 5.1 channel home cinema speaker system
  • Tick Similar and stylishly curved MASS 10 Satellite and Centre speaker for excellent imaging
  • Tick All C-CAM drivers
  • Tick Highly damped enclosures, cross-braced with tie-bolt driver fixings.
  • Tick HiVe reflex ports
  • Tick Discreet cable termination
  • Tick Wall and stand mount ready (dedicated stands available separately)
  • Tick Black cloth finish with contrasting solid aluminium end caps

"Solidly made and feel weighty in the hand. For such petite speakers, we were blown away by the big and confident output of sound. And they’re certainly capable of filling a decent-sized room as well; our testing rooms were engulfed in seamless, controlled soaring dynamics. For the money, it delivers heaps of atmosphere and detail – you’ll be endlessly entertained."

HiVe II Port Technology

HiVe II Port Technology

A new type of port technology which uses a straight rifled design to accelerate air flow and reduce turbulence. HiVe II technology has the ability to move air in and out much quicker than a conventional port, the result is fast powerful bass coupled with superior transient response.

Gold Dome C-CAM

Gold Dome C-CAM

The gold dome tweeter is formed from a ceramic-coated aluminium/magnesium alloy, gold anodised to a specific thickness for ideal stiffness and damping characteristics. Its new profile and surround geometry have been developed using advanced modelling tools, to provide the optimum qualities for accurate sound reproduction. The new design moves the first order of breakup to beyond 35kHz, producing a linear response way beyond audibility, which matches the wide frequency bandwidth available from HD music and cinema sound formats. The gold dome is thinner, lighter, more rigid and therefore more efficient than domes made from other materials which are prone to distortion in the audio band.

C-CAM Drivers

C-CAM Drivers

Ceramic-Coated Aluminium/Magnesium is a material originally developed by the aerospace industry for jet engine components. Its properties are ideal for loudspeaker cones being extremely rigid, yet light enough to yield high overall efficiency. In manufacture, aluminium/magnesium alloy undergoes a three-stage stress-relieving process to remove surface deformation and molecular weakness. Once formed, the alloy cone is subjected to a high temperature anodic coating process in which a layer of pure ceramic alumina is depleted onto its surfaces to a depth of 50 microns, producing a completely rigid sandwich of alloy and heat-dissipating ceramic material. Conventional cones are liable to flex or twist in operation, producing a significant level of audible distortion. C-CAM cones have a much higher resistance to bending stress and therefore exhibit much greater fidelity over their entire operating range. C-CAM tweeters and woofers share an audible consistency producing a smooth transition of frequencies and a sense of realism and cohesion in the soundstage.
