Monitor Audio BX1 is a superb little speaker. Its portrayal of sound serves the music rather than enhancing the sound in a artificial fashion. It does all the 'hifi' basics (bass, treble, dynamics, PRAT and resolution) in a acceptable musical fashion. Not bad for a speaker worth £200.00

I own a pair of Monitor Audio Bx5 as well and all I can say is that the BX1s really rock. I love doing sound comparisons between the two sets and I can say that for such a small speaker they give you a large full sound with great detail and clarity, I think if i had heard the BX1s first I might not have even given the BX5s a listen as they really did it for me. Dont be fooled by their size!

Chuffed with the voluminous sound generated by such small speakers. From everything from bass-heavy songs such as "Supermassive Black Hole" to acoustic numbers like Led Zeppelin's "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You", my BX1s have never failed to prove seriously impressive.
