The new Platinum II’s crystal clear tonal precision is concentrated by this beautiful little two-way speaker comprising a single 6.5” RDT II mid-bass driver and MPD tweeter. Easy to place in-room the PL100 II will nevertheless belie its compact dimensions with a wide open soundstage punctuated by breath-taking dynamics and imaging so stable you can almost touch it. A bespoke floor stand (available separately) will position the PL100 II at the perfect listening height.

ARC

ARC

Monitor Audio's Anti-Resonance Tecnnoloy is present in a number of their speaker ranges. Refined for the Platinum II range the technology is essentially a high density polymer with added minerals which is cured by high temperateure to set it. Once set it is an extremely inert material, ideal for optimal dampening. As the material is highly resistant to vibration and extremely rigid it helps prevent the propagation of standing waves and model resonances.

DFC

DFC

A new innovation on the Platinum II series is the Dynamic Coupling Filter. It serves a couple of purposes, firstly it acts as a flexible coupling between the voice coil and the driver and is calibrated specifically to the crossover frequency of the driver to dampen energy which could cause distortion. Further to that the perforations in the DFC alow air to pass though, releasing pressure for a more natural sound.

Finishes

Finishes

The Platinum II range is available in three sumptuous deluxe finishes, real wood ebony or santos rosewood veneer and high gloss piano black lacquer. All models feature a front baffle which is hand-upholstered in the very best quality Inglestone leather for a truely luxury look and feel.

MPD

MPD

The Micro Pleated Diaphragm tweeter may look like a ribbon tweeter from a distance, but the design produces a surface area around thirteen times that of a regular ribbon. Developed following many months of extensive reasearch and development Monitor Audio's exclusive design represents yet another unique feature of Platinum II and produces a delightfully natural sound and even extends up to an incredible 100kHz.

HiVe

HiVe

One of Monitor Audio's patented features, the HiVe II port uses a design with ridges which enables air to pass through the port faster and with less turbulence than a standard bass port. This results in more responsive bass than a tradtional port design and superior transient response.

Grilles

Grilles

The honeycombed RDT II drivers and MPD tweeter look so great it would be a shame to cover them up. But for those who need to the Platinum II are supplied with acoustically transparent individual grilles for each driver, so they sound just as great with grilles on or off.

RDT

RDT

Consistantly refined over the years, Monitor Audio's rigid diaphragm technology is on its second generation. It utilises a nomex core material sandwiched between ceramic coated aluminium and woven carbon fibre for superb strength and ridgidity which is also incredibly light. The honeycomb pattern serves to further stiffen the surface of the cone, minimising distortion. The new Platinum II cones are the lowest distortion drivers Monitor Audio has produced to date.

TLE

TLE

Tapered Line Enclosure. The mid-range driver's in Platinum II loudspeakers feature a separate sealed enclosure which is tapered to prevent the formation of standing waves. This increases isolation from the cabinet and results in more accurate sound reproduction as a result.

Terminals

Terminals

Completly custom terminals milled from solid copper and Rhodium plated for maximum conductivity. Of course the terminals accept standard 4mm banana plugs as well as spades or large gauge bare wire. A set of quality links are included for use if you are not bi-wiring.

Crossover

Crossover

Platinum II use Monitor Audio's "Pureflow" silver-plated OFC cable inside to connect the crossover and drivers and the network itself uses the highest quality audiophile grade components which are hand picked for their fine tolerances for the very best sound.
