Bronze Reference 5.1 Speaker System Review

"Dark as they are, the BR6s do have a bold appearance that says vigour and verve."

"The BRW-10, with its 10-inch woofer and 150 watt amplifier, produced bass that was quick and clean, and never painful."

"...there is a lot to enjoy about the Monitor Audio Bronze Reference speakers. From sonic performance to visual appeal, these speakers have just the right stuff."

British Reserve

'The Bronze BR5's are a floorstanding design that is relatively unobtrusive...the cabinets are wooden and very well braced...the result is a sound that isn't tiring and doesn't detract from the music...they have a refined sound...I turned up the volume and the sound changed from a comforting background murmur to an alive, engaging one. The BR5's have good timing...for a small speaker they have a good extended bottom range and good deep notes...the BR5's are accurate and the result is a speaker that doesn't dominate a room...The BR5's demonstrate that good quality hi-fi needn't be expensive.'

Monitor Audio Bronze BR5

'I know over the years speaker performance has been on the up, while prices have gone the other way, but I wasn't expecting the BR5s to be as accomplished as they are. I honestly can not think of another floorstander with these specs and price tag that'll offer as much music and enjoyment than these Monitor Audios.'

'a well rounded loudspeaker adept at handling complex classical music with a degree of polish, fine detail and even a hint of sparkle...tonally, the BR5 is as near neutral as you would wish...good control and strong dynamics, and it works well across a spectrum of music genres...its about offering value for money and overall it offers a winning deal!'

Big new Bronzes going for gold

'One sure sign of a good product is when we carry on listening to it well after the reviewing is done and dusted...so it speaks volumes for Monitor Audio's new Bronze BR5s that we were still playing them well past the point when most rivals would have been boxed-up ready for their return home...unmatchable musical sound...get things right and these speakers time superbly. This is a quality hard to find in similarly priced floormount speakers...strong dynamics, plenty of agility and an even tonal balance...these are the most convincing budget floorstanders we've heard'

Monitor Audio polishes Bronze

"Nothing else at this price exudes luxury to the same extent as the BR2's...They're refined so they won't make a meal of aggressive recordings...detail resolution is excellent...when using more capable kit, the BR2's aren't the limiting factors most rivals would be...in every respect, these speakers are little gems you'll be thrilled!"

Monitor Audio BR2

"It's said that absence makes the heart grow fonder, and in the case of the Monitor Audio Bronze BR2 speakers, we wholeheartedly agree...turn on and tune in, and the sense of scale and detail is instantly striking...even in our largest listening room, these speakers do a grand job of sending sound to every corner...we're greeted with deeper, rounder bass tones than we've heard anywhere else in this test...at the other end of the scale there's a real freshness and immediacy...the Monitor Audio Bronze Br2s really are exceptional all-rounders...they are a must-listen if you're looking to buy a pair of speakers in this price category."

Bronzes won't accept silver medal (BR2 AV system)

'This is a great package. For well below a grand, you get a fairly compact, beautifully made, lovely sounding 5.1 surround set-up...refined yet entertaining presentation...we tried a range of material...on each occasion these Monitor Audios let the soundtracks do their thing without hindrance or colouration. The same is true for music, as you would expect from the award winning fronts...this excellent package does everything we could ever reasonably ask for in a sub-£1000 package.'

There's a new kid in town

"Solid build, sonic performance and decent aesthetics make the BR2's a 'must audition'...the detail resolution, too, is superb for the money, so adding them to more capable kit won't see them out of their depth, unlike many rivals...if you're into your music and can't justify thousands of pounds on high-end speakers, these won't disappoint!..for unashamedly good speakers, there's no point in looking any further!"

Group test winner

"What you have here is a grown-up speaker with a budget price tag... the beauty of the BR2's is that they're so good...to find something markedly better, you'll probably have to spend twice as much... the dynamics on offer - at this price - exceptional...it really is incredibly hard to fault these speakers."

A New £400 Champion

'KEF's iQ5's have won our top speaker Award for the last two years. For them to be beaten isn't surprising: new products come along, and sometimes they're better - it's not an issue. The shocking thing for us is just how comprehensively the Monitor Audios manage to better the KEF's in most areas...as soon as you start listening, there's no doubting as to which is the superior performer...the finest budget floorstanders from Monitor Audio, well - dare we say it - ever...great value and a pleasure with all genres of music.'
