Studio 89

Studio 89

The compact, high-performance Studio 89 is inspired by the creativity and individuality of the 1980s. This sense of adventure is brought up to date with the latest Monitor Audio technology, including an MPD III high-frequency transducer and twin 4 ¼” RDT III C-CAM bass-mid drivers.


Studio 89 takes inspiration from the culturally explosive 1980s and Monitor Audio’s iconic Studio Series, 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.

Studio 89 is a compact bookshelf model that houses many of the advanced acoustic technologies found in both Platinum Series 3G and Monitor Audio’s statement speaker, Hyphn. Powerful twin 4 ¼” RDT III C-CAM bass-mid drivers provide punchy, articulate and controlled bass that seamlessly blends with the MPD III high-frequency transducer. The sonic package delivers exceptionally lifelike HF clarity and taught MF/LF bass precision for a truly high-fidelity presentation.

Studio 89’s cabinet is finished in a deep high-gloss black paint with gold-coloured drive units. This is a reference to the iconic Studio 15, which was the only model within the original Studio Series available in this stylish combination.

Studio 89 delivers a breathtakingly big sound, from a beautifully finished compact box.
