Monitor Audio Bronze 50
The latest series in what has been the most acclaimed British speaker brand the last decade. There’s plenty of insight here, from the way the trailing edges of the piano notes fade gracefully into silence to the Bronze 50s’ ability to track subtle pace changes. It’s a spellbinding performance, out of keeping from what we normally hear at this price level. Designed to perform in the smallest of living spaces, the compact and bookshelf-friendly Bronze 50s will deliver the renowned Monitor Audio sound even when placed close to a wall
Engineered like hi-end Speakers
Monitor Audio recognise that the first thing our brain latches on to is the high frequencies - and they brought their expensive ceramic aluminum tweeter to this series. The result is a suave rendition. For the most part there are no rough edges here. This is a carefully-honed pair of speakers that brim with refinement
The Aluminum Ceramic bass driver is light and agile for superb bass control and attack. Find yourself swept along by the energy and a fine sense of drive. Rhythmically, these speakers have a good amount of precision and communicate the momentum of the piece well
The new Bronze Series has undergone a complete redesign, featuring four contemporary finishes (White, Walnut, Urban Grey and Black) with a sleek contrasting baffle and matching magnetic grille. Part of a series that allow combinations to set up the system you want to build. From 2-channel HiFi Stereo system to a multi-channel Dolby Atmos surround system
Reviewer Matthias Fengler took a closer look at the Bronze 50 bookshelf speakers and was so impressed he gave them a Top Product and Recommended Award.
"This Monitor Audio-Combination managed to bring a little smile to my face and to experience already known film titles once again in a brilliant way. Although the Bronze 50 is quite compact, I experienced them as very present and „in action“. Their precise way of dealing with effects and voices provided the right sound backdrop and I liked it from the very first note."
"Precision and detail reproduction are especially important for music playback, and this is what distinguishes the system from Monitor Audio. Musicality is simply in the blood of the bookshelf speakers. Because no matter what genre or music era I was playing, whether the Eagles or Paul Kalkbrenner, the resolution of the Bronze 50 convinces with fine, elaborate details and emotional voice reproduction. Fine guitar riffs by Mr. Slowhand / Eric Clapton are wonderfully extracted and presented to me, violins or other string instruments from classical music pieces are clearly differentiated and always combined in a harmonious stage setting.
