'The fact of the matter is that the Bronze BX2s are just a tremendous all-round proposition with no major weaknesses. The benchmark at this price has been well and truly raised.'

Super Sonic Value: "Monitor Audio's Affordable, Awesome Speaker Package"

“...the longer I listened, the more impressed I became by their unforced musicality and easy, natural dynamics.”

“The Monitor Audio aced it, with whistling that was even and bright without ever leaning toward the shrill on any one note (an excellent indication of smoothness in the top octaves of tweeter response), and with intact baritone breathiness that never tilted over the rasp of fizz.”

“In terms of vocal honesty and of midrange texture and detail, the Bronze BX2s sounded far, far more expensive than $500-ish per pair.”

“And the treble demands were met effortlessly: Horn attacks and drum transients sounded uniformly excellent.”

“The Monitor Audio supporting cast, comprising the BX Center and BXFX surrounds, provided solidly, unspectacularly competent reproduction - with the latter characterization meant in the best way.”

“The center-channel unit made an unusually close match with the BX2s and, when auditioned on-axis (from the center seating location), created a truly seamless “front stage.”

“The Monitor Audio array turned out to have plenty of reserves for louder fare like Godzilla - and the little BXW10 proved itself a gamer, willingly laying down a surprisingly solid basis for footballs, crashing buildings, and other assorted mayhem.”

“(Monitor Audio) should be proud to have produced a very well-balanced, highly musical, and attractive layout that delivers honest value and then some."

Bronze BX2 - Best Stereo Speaker!

"We've long been fans of Monitor Audio's BX2s. They've always been such well-rounded products, as though the people behind them have spent months ironing out any weaknesses, and then months more honing things further."

"No rival we've reviewed feels so solid or is finished to such a high standard."

"These Monitor Audios sound terrific. They have the kind of mature sonic balance that favours long-term satisfaction over the short-term ability to impress at a dealer demo."

"Give them a good long listen and you'll find they deliver an impressive amount of detail. We've yet to come across a rival that can replay Debussy's Clair De Lune with such Finesse. The speaker's dynamic subtlety is pleasing, as is the bass authority."

"Move onto the music of REM and these speakers excel, delivering 'Losing My Religion' with impact and drive."

Awarded five stars in a bookshelf speaker round-up, The Mail on Sunday concluded;

"These speakers from Essex-based Monitor Audio are the best you can buy under £400. Their sonic drive is matched by classy fit and finish. Sophisticated enough to be paired with an amp costing twice as much."
