Default Vintage Monitor Audio MA200? Limited edition Monitor 2 Gold?

Hi all,

Just picked up what I thought were some Monitor 2 Gold speakers made at the old Cambridge factory near where I work. However on closer inspection I noticed that someone had hand written two zeroes after the 2 on the original box and looking at the rear of the speakers this is borne out as they are stated to be MA 200. What I can say is that they are probably the best small speaker Iíve ever heard. Jazz and vocals sound jaw dropping and bass is surprisingly deep. Aside from a little sun discolouration to the cabinets these are amazing. Just wish I knew more about the specs.

Cheers
Mat

Hi Mat!

I'm not clear on exact model. You say 'small speaker' - are they stand mounts?

A photograph of speaker and label on rear would help.

Hi there,

Thanks for your input. Iíve attached some photos for information. Theyíre tiny, I also picked up some Monitor 3 at the same time and the tweeters and bass drivers look the same.

Cheers
Mat

All references that I've found so far are from foreign sources.

This is all I've got at the moment:

Dimensions: 16.5x17x26.5cm
8ohm
50Hz-20kHz
90dB
3.5kg

Here's a quote I found on 'The Audio Forums' which may explain the lack of information on this particular speaker:

Quote:
"I could not detect them or find any info about them. At the end I contacted guys from Monitor Audio. Even they could not find any concrete info except couple of references with no further information. They concluded that it could be a special edition which previous owner (Mo Iqbal) liked to produce without any documentation."
