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 2

August 2015

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.
