Optimised to deliver a clear and dynamic reproduction, even at high listening levels the Monitor Audio Bronze One is a fantastic compact speaker. Featuring an impressive low end response for a speaker of their size the Bronze One are the ideal choice for hi-fi sound when space is at a premium. Although small in size the Bronze One is able to produce a big sound - utilising Monitor Audios proprietary 5 1/2" C-CAM bass driver and gold dome tweeter with a frequency response right up to 30kHz. The Bronze Ones are quite happy placed on shelf or stand but can also be wall mounted with the optional Monitor Audio speaker mount, adding extra placement flexibility.

The new Bronze range has drawn on technologies found in Silver and Gold ranges to produce a design which significantly lowers distortion and offers exceptional value for money. The bass drivers use a new "dished" cone which results in not only a cleaner look for the Bronze range but also serves to retain incredible detail when combined with other changes such as the thermally coupled voice coil which aids optical operation at all volume levels. Theres also a newly developed tweeter which redirects airflow to a rear loading chamber to prevent compressed air behind the dome and thus reducing resonance and distortion.

Further improving performance is Monitor Audios "bolt-through" driver mounting system which has been adopted on almost all ranges. Alongside the audible improvements provided by the system which reduces unwanted resonances from the driver as well as further bracing the cabinet structure it also results in a very aesthetically pleasing result, with the front baffle featuring no driver bolts whatsoever. On top of this invisible magnetic grille fixings and a beautiful trim around the drivers and front ports all combine to give the Bronze a certain streamlined elegance and premium look.

Whether you e looking for stereo hi-fi speakers or a home theatre, the Bronze range offers a flexible selection from the demure Bronze One to the bold Bronze 6 theres a size to suit all needs and all models offer a uniform, tonally consistent sound-field. The Bronze range is also available in a choice of four fine looking finishes to suit all tastes, with a classic Black Oak, traditional Walnut and Rosemah and an adventurous Ash White.
