Monitor Audio Studio 89 Speakers

Conceived in the 1980s. Reimagined for today.

The iconic Studio Series. A legendary speaker range born when music television, and video tape ruled. An era of bold styles, vibrant colours, early computer gaming and breathtakingly rapid technological innovation fuelled an un-rivalled explosion of popular culture and laid the foundation for today’s digital era.

Simplicity personified.

Small, compact and visually unique, the all-new Studio 89 is an uncompromising little speaker. It packs an awful lot of acoustic technology into its compact dimensions, and while it is one hundred percent a Monitor Audio speaker, born of a Transparent Design Philosophy, it is as unique in the range as the statement Hyphn.

Studio 89 is designed to be different. Listen Again.

Born of a decade fuelled by cultural change-makers.

Studio 89 takes inspiration from this culturally explosive decade but is a thoroughly modern loudspeaker. Inspired by individual expression and the culture that shapes it, Studio 89 is the loudspeaker for the new change-makers.

MTM Driver Array.

The MTM (Mid-Tweeter-Mid) Driver Array offers advantages of vertical symmetry. Also, increased bass-mid driver cone surface and voice coils mean improved dynamic capability and better in-room floor and ceiling interaction. Working like a point source, the sound dispersion is large, spacious and enveloping.


Studio 89’s bass-mid driver cones are made up of three ultra-thin layers to ensure rigidity and strength. A C-CAM outer skin, ‘ceramic-coated aluminium magnesium’, sits over a Nomex honeycomb central core with the underside skin made up of a woven carbon fibre. The result: super lightweight and very, very strong.

Transparent Design Philosophy.

The all-new Studio 89 is built upon an R&D philosophy of maintaining a balance between design and technology. One is never allowed to overpower the other and both play a vital role in delivering on the promise of musical neutrality and acoustic transparency. The physical speakers are designed to sit comfortably within their environment. They are a beautiful statement, but one where perfectly balanced design neutrality means they will blend in for a lifetime of use.

Cabinet design.

Compact in size and extremely narrow, Studio 89’s design optimises acoustics and helps present a much larger soundstage into the listening area. The cabinet is also carefully internally braced to ensure structural rigidity.

New crossover design.

The crossovers have undergone hours of listening and part selection, using only the best bespoke polypropylene and polyester capacitors, air-core and low-loss laminated steel-core inductors to provide maximum signal transfer and reduced distortion for optimum sound delivery.

The MPD III (micro-pleated diaphragm) high-frequency transducer delivers precise, lifelike high frequencies with ease. Its super-fast-reacting accordion-like pleats produce a smooth, wide and fast response.

Articulate, powerful and controlled bass.

Studio 89 is compact for good reason. Monitor Audio know space is at a premium within the home, while large room-filling sound is a must. Advances in metal driver cone technology and powerful motor systems mean that the two things aren’t mutually exclusive.
