Monitor Audio’s story is intertwined with the evolution of their world-famous speaker lines. Driven by top-down innovation and ever more accurate acoustic analysis, each generation has grown in capability, achieving award-winning levels of quality, performance and value with every introduction.
Monitor Audio's restless desire for the most blissful combination of great sound and design at all price points, demands that where possible we share the technology across ranges so that driver designs and analytic tools developed upstream serve to enhance ranges further down. For example, this approach allows the Gold series to benefit from a version of Platinum’s extraordinary C-CAM ribbon tweeter; for Silver to inherit Gold’s ‘dished’ C-CAM driver designs, and similarly for Bronze to absorb the latest refinements in tweeter and driver engineering from the Silver project.
In many ways, Bronze has everything to gain from Monitor Audio’s dynamic forty-year design heritage. Enriched as it is with elements of Platinum, Gold and Silver, the brilliant Bronze series will transcend the expectations of its price class and eclipse even its venerated multi-award winning predecessor Bronze BX.
The Monitor Audio Bronze 2 builds on the strength of its predecessor’s audiophile cred with a neutral tonal balance and high detail resolution combined with high overall efficiency and power handling. These are the perfect ingredients for compelling listening. Armed with a larger 6.5” C-CAM bass driver and front-firing HiVe® port, the turbo-charged Two is capable of effortless dynamic scale and presence, revealing all the dramatic contrast in music and cinema sound. For a speaker of its size, the Two will deliver breath-taking results mounted on a stand and placed up to 8” (20cm) from a wall.
