Bronze 2 | HiFi Choice awards 5 stars!

"Monitor Audio has had a long time to perfect the Bronze 2 and it’s hard to think of another standmount in the same price bracket that gets quite so much right. As such, it remains the cream of the class and a terrific buy."

Bronze 2 | What Hi-Fi?'s Stereo Speaker Feature

What Hi-Fi? have taken another look at our Bronze series to highlight our Bronze 2, commenting on the capabilities of such a compact bookshelf speaker:

"We're impressed by the Bronze 2's ability to stay composed, even at high volumes, and by the scale of their presentation."

As well as praising the performance of the new Bronze 2s, What Hi-Fi? commended the development from previous generations. New technology has been introduced, whilst retaining the best qualities of the highly-regarded Bronze series that came before:

"An object lesson in how to take a great-sounding speaker and refine it further. Arguably the best Bronzes yet"

A coveted Hi-Fi News ‘Outstanding’ badge joins a What Hi-Fi? Award in confirming the Bronze 2 as a budget superstar!

Usually reserved for the finest megabucks systems, the Hi Fi News ‘Outstanding’ badge is a genuine measure of hi-fi greatness, so we’re absolutely delighted that the latest honouree should come from a Monitor Audio budget range! Having just collected a What Hi-Fi? Award for its supreme performance and value, the amazing Bronze 2 is now confirmed as ‘Outstanding’ by one of the world’s most respected specialist audio magazines. In its February 16 issue Hi-Fi News says “…they have excellent bass power and control for their size, being as adept with kicking rhythms as they are with the weight of orchestral strings and percussion. Add to that a fine, fresh view of the midband and treble, enabling them to bring out the character of voices and lead instruments, and a high treble that's detailed while at the same time sweet and clean-sounding, and you have a speaker fully able to take the listener into the heart of the music…these are honest, attractive and classy little speakers, and they're a great buy.”

Bronze 1 named a "BBC Music Choice" product!

Our Bronze 1 bookshelf speakers have received an overwhelming response from BBC Music Magazine, as well as being selected as a "BBC Music Choice" product!

"All this technology and build excellence is impressive given the sub-£300 price tag which is generally regarded as a budget price for loudspeakers."

"At high levels, where things can get a bit muddled, the Bronze 1s never seem to miss a beat, remaining perfectly timed and in control of the sound."

"...their performance delivers at a level of speakers at least two or three times more, I'd give them six stars if I could."

"Phenomenal speakers" Bronze 6 floorstanders

Monitor Audio's Bronze 6 floorstanding speaker has been awarded the Soundstage Access Reviewer's Choice; with reviewer Hans Wetzel commending the ability of the Bronze 6 whilst being such an affordable speaker:

"The Monitors soundstaged superbly to re-create the explosive nature of the proceedings, with coherent, convincing center fill, precise imaging, and a surprising sense of depth."

"The speaker’s treble response was clean and extended, without glare or brightness -- but here, too, there seemed to be a slight emphasis in the lower treble that produced commendable sparkle and spaciousness."

"This killer loudspeaker is a high-water mark of audio value."

5 star masterclass from the Bronze 5

The new Bronze 5 has put some distance between it and the BX5 with a stunning first-test result in Hi-Fi Choice mag. Following the excellent five-star review for the Bronze 2 in What Hi-Fi? Sound & Vision, David Vivian’s experience clearly reveals the audiophile nature and astonishing value offered by the new Bronze series. Awarding a Hi-Fi Choice recommended badge and a maximum five stars for sound quality, value, ease of drive and overall, he says “…Bronze 5 doesn’t come across like an incremental evolution of the BX5. Instead, it looks and sounds as if it should cost at least £1,000…straight away I’m hooked by the bijou tower’s powers of resolution and capacity to dig deep into a recording. The inner detail it captures can sometimes seem mesmerising…That such compelling clarity, grip, dynamics and enormous musical insight can be experienced from a slim box at a beer budget price is a powerful statement.”

A Best Buy award for our Bronze AV system

Hot on the heels of its What Hi-Fi? Product of the Year award, the Bronze B5AV system has notched another success with a Best Buy Award from Home Cinema Choice magazine. Scoring a full five stars for performance, features and overall, it has reviewer Danny Phillips convinced. He says “For the price tag demanded, this sextet of cabinets proves rather spectacular. It’s rich in power and dynamics but with the overarching sense of refinement that characterises all of the company's output…This lucid, natural approach lets you lose yourself in the story without even realising there are speakers in the room. That's the measure of a great system…This is a tremendous entry-level offering, backing up its rousing, insightful sound with top-drawer design and build quality. It looks and sounds like it should cost a lot more than it does.”

Great speakers. Better than many, even more expensive, speakers i also tested. Musical with extended highs, clean midrange and tight bass. I really enjoy listening to these speakers.

Good value for money at this price-point. They shine at higher volumes and has slightly better bass/midrange clarity/definition than the (more expensive) B&W 684s. These are good entry-level stereo speakers that seems to go well with most entry-level amplifiers.

Fantastic, rich, room filling sound, produces amazing clarity across all music genres, I've had more expensive bigger brand speakers that haven't come anywhere near delivering the sound quality that these can, truly wonderful in all areas.

Used with TEAC reference 500

The Bronze 5 had a tough act to follow – a pair of Epos ES14 stand-mounted speakers, renowned for their open and dynamic delivery. Well, things have evidently moved on in the last 25 years, and far more so than I had suspected.

The Bronze 5 delivers a much higher quality at the top end, with the slight sizzle of the Epos completely gone, and replaced with a smooth and revealing quality that brings believability to cymbals and percussion. I swear I can now tell if a cymbal is hit with an all wooden stick or a nylon tipped one.

The midrange is also more revealing, extracting unheard detail from complex material. The bass end is taught and articulate, with plenty of slam and extension, once positioning in the room is experimented with.

The sound stage has expanded as the drive units have been worn in, giving excellent imagery. As a partner to a Linn LP12, Naim 42.5/110 and Arcam Alpha 7SE CD player, they've slotted in seamlessly. With a not dissimilar voicing to the old Epos speakers, but with oodles more detail, I couldn't be more pleased with how they sound.

Epos, may I introduce you to Ebay?

Amazing speakers for the money, wide and detailed soundstage from well built attractive compact towers. Truly stunning with my Marantz PM6005/CD6005 combo.

Stunning speakers. Have a listen to these speakers, you'll soon understand why they get 5 stars from what hi-fi!. The speakers have given my music a new dynamic edge. Well worth the money.

Good looking speakers that perform well beyond the pricepoint. They need long run in period, but after that the sound is crisp, transparent with lots of three dimensional capacities. They sound like small floorstanders, the bass is solid and fast. They have some strange magical touch when it comes to vocals. Very difficult to find better baby monitors than this, and definitly not at this pricepoint.

Absolutely stunning. Brilliant treble, mid range and bass. Versatile and they love all genres of music. An absolute steal at this price point.

The sound is completely amazing for the price, the bass is tight and the highs are just perfect. At begining, they might sound a bit high and lacking in warmth, but let hours past by and the sound will bluff you, for the price and size, at least, to me. I would have give 5 stars, but I think that the finish could have being better.

Excellent all-around sound quality. Warm, crisp and clear across all genres of music. Front port makes placement more versatile. These bookshelf speakers can truly fill the room with depth and power like you'd expect from towers.

UFB! Sound is amazing. Two small bookshelf speakers for my office are outstanding! Far best in class speakers by far. I just might have to add some more speakers!
