Written on: 10/04/2020 by Timmyboo55 (1 review written)

Fantastic little speakers! Bought them for a song here in the States. I use them as back speakers in my surround sound setup and they sound great paired with my redline B and O front speakers with Kliptch subwoofer. Wonderful little guys!… Read Full Review

I have owned a pair of ELTAX monitor III for about 5 years now they are paired up to a YAMAHA RX-V630RDS av unit. I give them deth every time i use them and they are still sweet as a nut.

Written on: 25/09/2009

I have now onned three pairs of Eltax Monitor III speakers in various houses and flats and I have found them great in both small and enlarged spaces. The top notes are clear and sharp, the mid range delivers more than ample noise and the bass is very rich but not too wallowy. Ideally, I do agree that they should be on stands but on a set of spikes with seating discs as well, they are far better than pretty much any other speakers in their price range. Happy to recommend them to all but the… Read Full Review

“Eltax Monitor III are great speakers for the price,...”

Written on: 30/07/2009 by IgWannA (5 reviews written)

Eltax Monitor III are great speakers for the price, have had them 6 years and still sound just as good. Very clear sounding but my only complaint is the bass is rather weak. Even when I turn the bass up on my Cambridge Audio A1 amp it only increases low-mids. I guess you really need a subwoofer to get the full effect. But for the price you really can't complain!… Read Full Review

If bass is weak, look to the other components in your system as this is not an Eltax weakness

Written on: 10/05/2008

The Eltax Monitor III sound quality is good - bass notes are clear, yet not too boomy. The top-end is detailed and there is a comfortable mid-range. Well put-together too!
Cheap for 70notes!… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/11/2007 by simon tock (2 reviews written)

Would buy with confidence, invest in good stands or heavy shelf. Good cables make these a truly outstanding speaker right across the spectrum. These are less than 30cm high so they are no bass-heads but still perform strongly in all areas… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/04/2007 by Nibinaear (2 reviews written)

I've owned a set of Eltax Monitor III speakers for many years now (beach) and I've always been happy with them.

If you want some advice on their placement then I recommend buying a set of floor mounted speaker stands as they are absolutely essential for these speakers! I originally put them on the floor, but I then bought a pair of cheap Acoustic speakers from Argos (£30) and filled them with sand. Doing this improved the sound quality by a massive 300%! In the last year I have upgraded to… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/12/2006 by ditzy (1 review written)

Having read the reviews in here I made my journey over to Richer Sounds and purchased my new speakers. What a bargin - what a great buy. I was using Mission 73s and Kef C15 speakers through my Sony amp but I wasn't impressed by the bass response so I thought I'd check these out - I'm so glad I did. The bass response whilst still not holding up against a subbed up system is way way better than with the Missions and Kefs and the treble is refined and crisp, I have been checking them out on all… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/10/2006 by Lester Heady (1 review written)

I needed to buy a pair of budget speakers which offer good value for money, and at the same time give excellent reproduction. Having invested in a pair of Eltax 3 speakers, I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone who cannot afford a king's ransom for excellent sound reproduction. I'm a classical music devotee and good sound quality is essential, and these speakers provide this and more.!

Written on: 17/12/2004 by danbert (1 review written)

With all the talk about the difficulty in getting stands for the Eltax Monitor III Stereo Speakers I have to be honest and say that when I bought these, I thought they would be fine on the floor (don't laugh). They had spikes on the bottom so I thought this would help isolate the vibrations enough to compensate for the low profile.

Boy was I wrong.

Unfeasibly boomy bass, harsh treble and no midrange to speak of. After experimenting with speaker cables, fiddling with tone controls and… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/04/2004 by kennethfong (1 review written)

I just bought a pair of Eltax Monitor III speakers, and they sound superb, great all-round performer. The soundstaging is good, presence is clear, bass hits low, though not as low as the subs go all the way to 20hz, but it's not designed to compete with the subs anyway. For its vocal performance it's top notch, what can I say, a quality speaker at its price, for the price of 70 quid bought from Richer Sounds, these speakers are a value buy!!! I first wanted to go for pair of quads or 780… Read Full Review

Yo, my mate got some of these and either he wired them in wrong or they're knackered coz all you get is bass, I mean it's like there's no treble and it sounds like the sound is coming through 1 channel only.

The speakers are biwired; lowfreq and high freq have there own connectors. 1. You have to connect properly
<br/>2. Are your tweeters still ok ?
<br/>3. Are you sure this is the same speaker you talk about ?

Written on: 25/11/2003 by screechypoo (1 review written)

as i said these Eltax Monitor III speakers sound very good for the price(£60 from richer) and are actually quite flexible, i had the speakers on stands in my bedroom which is to be fair, quite small, about three meteres by three. in my bedroom the bass is ever present, but never over-powering, in fact if you're into vinyl, these speakers are spot on....however, it's not just small rooms, my brother in law swapped me his Mordaunt Short ms 25i's, which were far too bass heavy for my… Read Full Review

With regard to the comments about the lack of availability of suitable stands for eltax monitor 3 loudspeakers. I can say that i was lucky to locate a pair from argos at the end of 2002. Though they're no longer available from argos you may be able to purchase direct from the manufacturer or another retailer. They're badged as 'rax' & made by accoustic solutions & cost then £30 & are well made with an adequately sized top plate. I've filled each of the three pillars per stand with dry sand which greatly improves the perceived sound & of course adds stability.

Written on: 04/08/2003 by hengtian (2 reviews written)

I got Eltax Monitor III speakers to complement my Cambridge Audion C500 pre-Amp and P500 power-Amp. To be honest the sound is simply stunning. The speakers are cheap, good looking and sound quality is good for the price. However, if you really a bass hardcore, i suppose this speaker can't satify you (so far i still haven't heard any bookshelf speakers can give heavy bass). Then you might want to get a subwoofer to boost the bass… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/04/2003 by Joel. (1 review written)

The Eltax Monitor III have a great design, good looking (Ive got the beach effect), good build quality.
I felt if they coped with Jazz best, there was a lot of space and presence.
Classical music was good too, I needed to tone down the bass a little.
Pop music, excellent but more complex electronica music (Orbital) got a bit muddy in the lower-mid.
I would have liked to test it on better equipment.

The price-performance ratio is brilliant. Looks good. Sounds good. Speaker positioning may hold… Read Full Review
