The new Monitor Audio Bronze 5’s have just arrived in the store and although they have yet to be run in, the immediate impression is that these will be significantly better than the BX5’s they replace.

Playing Gotye through the Rega Brio R and Apollo R and it’s obvious that the bass is more extended as well as being more controlled than the BX5’s – which is no mean feat. The mid-range is also sounding more open and transparent – it will be interesting to see how much further they improve with some hours on them. 

If you’re hanging out for the new Bronze 1’s and Bronze 2’s then you will have to cool your boots for a few more weeks; keep an eye on our twitter feed – we’ll announce their arrival the moment they hit the store. 

If you can’t wait we still have stock of the wonderful BX2’s…
