Monitor Audio Introduces Hyphn Loudspeakers

Features the M-Array, which is a single high-frequency transducer surrounded by six 2-inch midrange drivers.

The production version of the Concept 50 prototype released in 2022, Hyphn is the sum of the Monitor Audio team’s collective experience and expertise. With its radical design, technical innovations, power, and performance, it delivers a dramatically enhanced listening experience with a visually striking presence.

At the heart of Hyphn is the M-Array. This unique configuration, developed in-house by Monitor’s Audio engineers, comprises a single high-frequency transducer surrounded by six 2-inch midrange drivers. The result is exceptional soundstage clarity, allowing the listener to precisely pinpoint individual instruments and vocals.

The high-frequency transducer adopts the new third-generation Micro Pleated Diaphragm III (MPD III) to deliver a larger, clearer and more consistent sound. Developed in-house by Monitor Audio’s acoustic engineers for the Concept 50 prototype, the same technology also appears on the Platinum Series 3G floorstanding loudspeaker.

The six 2-inch midrange drivers feature Monitor Audio’s Rigid Diaphragm Technology III (RDT III) cones, introduced in 2022 for enhanced clarity.

The M-Array is located squarely between Hyphn’s twin pillars, each of which houses a pair of 8-inch bass drivers, facing inwards, in a force-cancelling configuration, resulting in almost no vibration force from the drivers, either within themselves or being passed into the cabinet. Large diameter underhung voice-coils reduce harmonic distortion for clean, tight, high-impact bass performance.

Hyphn has been engineered to deliver enhanced bass control, response, and dynamics, plus exceptional detail through the treble and upper midrange. Crossovers are specifically designed to ensure precise, controlled performance across the full frequency spectrum. It’s also the most powerful loudspeaker Monitor Audio has ever produced.

Why ‘That’ Shape

Hyphn takes its name from the architectural term “hyphen” — a link connecting two separate structures. Each loudspeaker consists of two pillars, with the “hyphen” between them housing the M-Array.

The cabinet is constructed in thermoformed, precision-milled mineral and acrylic stone to create a totally rigid structure. The cabinet features built-in formed port tubes, strengthened ribs and bracing, and an internal and external wall thickness from .5-inch up to 1-inch for bracing around the force-cancelling bass drivers, making the cabinet almost vibration free. This minimizes physical distortion and resonance, ensuring optimum sound clarity and accuracy from the drive units.

Hyphn is presented in three finishes — Pure Satin White, Matte Black, and Matte Heritage Green. The MSRP is $90,000/pair, and it is available now with a product lead time of approximately 3 months from time of order.
