The MunroSonic EGG100 is the brand new EGG Monitoring System, a natural development of the revolutionary, curved, infinite baffle design concept of it's big brother, the Egg150, housed in a smaller chassis with a four-inch (100mm) driver.
This new system has been designed for greatest accuracy in near-field conditions, taking into account the fact that it will be used on consoles or flat surfaces. The frequency response is continuously adjustable to allow for the bass loading that can add up to 6dB to the sound level. The bass port is angled and placed as low as possible to take advantage of this effect without phase error.
Near-field monitors should, by definition, remain unaffected by room size and acoustic conditions but this is rarely the case. Typically, small, rectangular cabinets and a horizontal focus plane create diffraction and reflections that interfere with both frequency and phase, both of which adversely affect stereo imaging and mix accuracy. The EGG100 has a variable tilt base that allows perfect adjustment of the upward angle of the listening axis, so avoiding interfering reflections from the mixing console or desk surface.
This has enabled MunroSonic to make a supremely efficient speaker system - the phase coherent bass energy results in up to 6dB low frequency headroom - which means they pack a lot of punch for such small speakers. You’ll be amazed! The system comes complete with a separate control unit and amplifier which features passive analog crossovers, LF and HF trim pot EQ for location set-up, and a superb Class-A headphone amplifier, which alone is worth the cost of the control unit.
The EGG100, as with all MunroSonic products, is designed and manufactured in the UK by Munro Acoustics and Sonic Distribution and BS EN ISO 9001:2000 certified. The result is an exceptionally well-built, elegant and sonically purist piece of wholly British engineering.
- Unique monocoque shell construction (rigid and resonant neutral)
- Near zero diffraction interference (smooth frequency response)
- No internal standing waves (greatly reduced smearing)
- Perfect bass port integration (superb transient response)
- Free standing control unit and integrated amplification with 3m matched speaker cables
- Volume Level control and LED headroom indicator
- Class-A headphone amplifier
- Custom-designed speaker holder for adjustable vertical alignment (allows for perfect sweet spot in both vertical and horizontal planes)
- Precision trim pots for bass (LF) and High Frequency (HF) calibration

HiFi Choice - November 2015
“What happens from about 70Hz is truly extraordinary..."
“...you’re unlikely to hear better focus, speed and timing...”
“Sublime rendering of timbral texture & colour & a stunningly low noise floor that allows notes & ambient reverberation to decay into inky blackness seem impossibly ‘high-end’ given the modest price of the system.”
"...the EGGs are a dream to listen to for long periods..."
Sound On Sound - Sept 2015
“Well balanced, non-fatiguing sound.”
“Excellent bass extension for such a small driver.”
“High-quality British engineering.”
“The EGG100s deliver a high level of accuracy at adequate levels for nearfield listening.”
"...the EGG100s hold their own against anything else in the same price range.”
“The can play louder than you’d probably ever need them to in a nearfield setup, and they stay clean up to surprisingly high volumes, given the small drivers.”
“The bass extension is impressive, with greater ‘tightness’ and control than you might expect from a small speaker.”
“...the mids and highs come across as detailed yet smooth...”
MusicRadar - July 2015
"Stunning visually and sonically."
"...sets the bar for compact nearfields."
“Lovely stereo imaging."
"Low frequencies are clear and punchy and low frequency extension is good for their size."
"[The EGG100] package oozes quality in so many ways."
"These are some of best compact nearfields we've tried. 4.5/5"
AskAudioMag.com - June 2015
“Striking Design. Excellent Build Quality. Amazing Reproduction.”
“…a very serious monitoring system…”
“A beautifully balanced system capable of crystal clear sound reproduction, tight but powerful bass and excellent stereo imaging.”
“...the Egg100s were able to cope well with a variety of styles of music, picking out the nuances of jazz but also with a weighty and focused bass end that gave plenty of heft to dubstep and techno.”
“The fact that they are relatively compact doesn’t hinder the sound, but is helpful when desk space is at a premium.”
MusicTech Magazine - August 2015
"Excellent soundstage and transient response"
"The bottom-end seemed to be just right"
"...with plenty of spatial detail, finding a space for each [musical] element [in our mix] was quite simple."
"For anyone working in a small room, the EGG100 system is a great option..."
"With more and more of our time spent in small spaces, systems such as the EGG100 are a necessity..."
"...it's a good idea to invest in a great system such as this."
DJ Mag - Sept 2015
"The EGG100s are built to deliver a perfect audio dispersion in a confined space, allowing for a more accurate mix environment."
"...a rather handy headphone amplifier, which is a brilliant addition in its own right."
"The sound-field is amazing. The accuracy will transform your mixes."
"the accuracy and performance of these small monitors was truly unbelievable."
"...the EGG100 is a monitoring system that needs to be seriously looked at. "
KR Home Studio (FR) - July 2015
"The manufacturing is of impeccable quality...the speakers are peerless."
"The absence of parallel surfaces in the EGGs eliminates standing waves, and thus improves the intelligibility of bass and mid frequencies."
"These speakers have many technical strengths in the form of optimisations for precise and transparent sound reproduction."
"Andy Munro has created a headphone amplifier with much musicality."
"The manufacturer treated every detail that one notices, both for the quality of the components and the choice of connectivity."
George Walker Petit (Producer, Engineer, Composer & Musician) - August 2015
“...the MunroSonic EGG100 near-field studio monitors are just knocking me out. As my ‘main alternate’ speakers, they are making my work easier, and my product better.”
“[Andy Munro] is a wizard, with extensive experience and an impeccable reputation, plain and simple.”
“I was immediately struck by the fantastic stereo image – the sound stage, the depth of field and, good heavens, the focus and clarity of the EGGs.“
“Even the packaging screams: Quality.”
“I went for the Red ones, another smart move as they make me smile when I see them in the morning.”
