Bookshelf Speakers - Taking everything a speaker should do and producing it in such a neat package is no easy task. The Monitor Audio Bronze 100 speakers will make you explore your music collection with a grin on your face.
OUR VERDICT - They are simply and unequivocally sublime - That's it, full stop, no more needs to be said, buy a pair as you will love them. We could stop there and be happy that we have upheld our end of the bargain but Google likes lots of words on a page so I am going to have to carry on. How can such a small and unassuming speaker produce such a great performance ? That's something we ask every time we play them in our demo room and its hard to pinpoint why the Bronze 100 are so likable. They have an uncanny trait of making you sit in your favourite seat and enjoy the music for longer than you intended. Even poor recordings or Bluetooth streamed music sounds acceptable enough to draw you in.
Don't let the size of the Bronze 100 6G fool you, the amount of bass ( Low end extension to you audiophiles ) these little boxes can produce is quite a feat of magic, especially for a single driver. As an example, I am quite fond of Deep House or Chilled House or whatever it is called this week, which usually tends to have quite a deep bass line so one of the first things cued up on Tidal is 'The Night Life' by Miguel Campbell Feat Beccs Lott'. This has a mixture of repetitive, punchy deep bass notes and a silky female vocal that proves to be a great track to get the measure of a speakers credentials. The 100's simply get on with it and punch out the bass line like a night club hero to the point that I can feel my chest thumping from the sheer presence of the Bronze 100, the female vocal is portrayed beautifully with a great sense of raw realism creating the illusion that you are in the recording studio whilst this track was being created. In fact the whole frequency response seems to be beautifully judged without too much emphasis on any single part.
The Bronze 100 are more than happy to entertain in both a Hifi or Surround Sound Setup. If you want to add Dolby Atmos then the Bronze AMS Dolby Atmos speaker can be placed on top to recreate the Atmos experience.
In short the Monitor Audio Bronze 100 do exactly what a speaker should do, they don't take over your living space and they allow you to enjoy whatever music you are listening to with a massive smile on your face. Do we recommend them ? We most definitely do.
The Bronze Series 6G loudspeakers have been carefully designed to offer Monitor Audio’s British personality with an attractive contemporary touch. Featuring a complete upgrade for superior sound and build quality, everything was created with you in mind.
The fresh cabinet designs have clean and simple lines, and are available in a choice of four contemporary finishes (White, Walnut, Urban Grey and Black), with a sleek contrasting baffle and matching magnetic cloth-covered grille for an understated appearance.
One of the most eye-catching features of the Bronze 100 speakers are the acoustically transparent hexagonal dispersion patterns on the tweeter cover. Bronze speakers are a true part of the prestigious Monitor Audio speaker family as the hexagonal design also features on our award-winning Silver and Gold series. This design gives Bronze a premium feel, allowing light to catch the distinctive gold tweeter dome behind the grille.
The Bronze 100 6G speakers are undoubtedly in a different class. Premium gold-plated terminals and Pureflow silver-plated oxygen-free copper internal cabling offer pure and secure cable connectivity. As you would expect with Monitor Audio, the Bronze Series delivers an industry-leading sound. We have used our five decades of design heritage to ensure that our speakers offer an unforgettable performance wherever they are positioned in the home.
The Bronze Series features a new Uniform Dispersion (UD) Waveguide, which combines with our signature C-CAM Gold Dome Tweeter to give even sound dispersion, improved time alignment and wider directivity for lifelike sound.
Improved C-CAM Drivers have been specially engineered using conical diaphragm geometry for increased control and Damped Concentric Mode (DCM) technology for a more accurate time response. The drivers also feature a larger diameter voice coil to allow production of higher sound pressure levels. These design enhancements allow the Bronze Series to deliver a smoother tighter bass.
The Bronze 100’s larger cabinet size ensures the speakers deliver a grander audio presentation than the smaller Bronze 50. Our renowned C-CAM technology in the new 8" driver guarantees a detailed and powerful listening experience. The Bronze 100 rear Hive II port is designed and tuned to facilitate easy positioning without affecting performance.
As with all the loudspeakers in the Bronze Series, the superior build quality and choice of contemporary finishes ensures that the speakers are a stylish addition to any home.
