Floorstanding Speakers - Flagship speaker, Flagship performance. The Bronze 500 from Monitor Audio is the king of the range. Featuring all new 8 inch drive units its designed to please in both Hifi and Home Cinema setups.
OUR VERDICT - The wait is over, the highly anticipated new Monitor Audio Bronze 6G range has arrived. Rather than take the existing Bronze range and tweak things Monitor Audio have gone all in and built a new speaker from the ground up. We believe this is mainly due to the success and performance of the Monitor range, the performance was that good that the difference between the outgoing Bronze range and the Monitor range was minimal.
A whole new look has been implemented meaning that the fashion conscious amongst us will see the new Bronze range as part of the furniture rather than just a speaker. Increased cabinet sizing as well as improved drivers means that the new Bronze range is able to recreate more of the dynamic range in a Hifi or Home Cinema system, this will allow you to experience extra depth and warmth as well as maintaining control at higher listening levels.
Using their heritage and experienced gained from models higher up the range has allowed Monitor Audio to produce something rather special at this price point, in fact we believe that the whole Bronze 6G range is going to shake things up with other manufacturers as Monitor Audio have produced a speaker that does what every speaker should, allow you to enjoy the music. Do we recommend them ? We most definitely do.
The Bronze Series 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 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 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 pinnacle of the Bronze series, the Bronze 500s have a larger cabinet housing a Monitor Audio 25 mm C-CAM Gold Dome tweeter featuring a Uniform Dispersion (UD) Waveguide, plus two new 8" drivers to power a bigger performance.
On their sturdy steel outrigger feet, the Bronze 500s stand at just under one metre tall and exude a graceful presence, which complements their beautifully detailed audio reproduction.
With their powerful, natural and intricate performance, the Bronze 500s will thrill both music and movie lovers. The speakers look particularly stylish in our new Urban Grey finish, which perfectly complements the décor of a modern room.
