OUR VERDICT - Back in the days before anyone had ever heard of ‘designer’ products and hi-fi came with wardrobe-like enclosures and racks of chunky boxes, Monitor Audio invented the Radius Series of stylish and versatile speaker systems. So radical was the idea that it changed expectations of home entertainment forever. Now, energised by their latest driver technologies, the next generation of Radius has arrived, complete with new models, greater versatility and higher, wider, deeper sound.
When most people think of hifi or home cinema they worry that this means they will have to have big dominant speakers that go against the Feng Shui of the chosen room. Thanks to the engineering prowess of the Monitor Audio designers you can have discrete room filling sound thanks to the Radius range.
The Radius 90 is a multi tasking speaker that can turn its hand to Hifi, Home Cinema, Multi-Room audio and desktop audio. Whatever you want to use the Radius 90 for it is sure to please. - Thoroughly Recommended.
For ultra-discreet sound all around the home, or partnered with the Radius 380 sub for explosive stereo, the original hi-fi mini monitor continues to evolve, incorporating a 4" C-CAM bass driver and 1" C-CAM tweeter.
Radius features bass drivers with concave cone profiles, introduced by our top-of-the-range Platinum speakers and applied subsequently to Gold GX. Extensive research and FEA modelling have allowed us to perfect the relationship between the radiating diaphragm and its motor design, introducing larger motor sizes and voice coils for increased excursion, higher power capability and reduced distortion.
C-CAM Gold Dome tweeter - optimised to deliver the finest and widest performance within the compact Radius cabinets. It benefits from a more efficient rear-venting design, releasing air trapped and compressed at the back of the tweeter dome, and guiding it around the drive assembly to a rear-loading chamber.
HiVe II port design - Straight from Platinum’s design blueprint, the HiVe reflex port makes its Radius debut. It’s shaped to have the same effect on airflow as a gun-barrel on a bullet. Rifled grooves inside the port help to accelerate the flow and reduce turbulence, so air moves in and out of the port more efficiently, for a faster more dynamic bass response.
Single through-bolt driver fixing provides mechanical de-coupling and enhanced mid-band clarity and resolution. The through-bolts also act as rigid cross bracing to give a very solid non-resonant cabinet.
Single point ¼” x 20TPI wall fixing. Use the optional Monitor Audio speaker mount or any standard wall bracket. Optional floor-stand with internal (pre-wired) cable management system.

Small speakers, great sound
Small, smart speakers which produce great sound. I replaced my large speakers and bought these as I have moved and haven’t the space. I think they sound very good in my 12’ x12’ room for both pop and classical music. Would recommend. - RS
