About the Product
The Bronze 1's are able to play much louder and deeper than their compact size would suggest from close-to-wall positions in smaller room environments. Perfect for stand or shelf, or wall-mounted using our Universal Wall Bracket (UWB), the Ones will deliver great sound where space is at a premium.
Monitor Audio's Bronze 2 bookshelf speaker builds on the strength of its predecessor the Bronze BX2's audiophile credibility with a neutral tonal balance and high detail resolution combined with high overall efficiency and power handling. These are the perfect ingredients for compelling listening.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Monitor Audio Bronze 1 Walnut
  • Very good midrange and high end performance but lacks bass a little but then these are bookshelf sized speakers.
  • I am surprised with sound, material, size and weight in this speaker. This is all at the highest level. Highly recommend.
  • This sound is great for such a small speaker size.
  • This is a compact speaker that does not take up much space in a small room.
  • For such a small speaker, it has a heavy weight that will cause inconvenience when carrying it.

What customers say about "Audio"
Monitor Audio Bronze 1 Walnut
  • The best bookshelf speaker on the market at this price. I use them as PC desktop speakers through a X7 Soundblaster amp/soundcard and what a rich, detailed sound.
  • These speakers are the best for flat and even response and the size is perfect, and they are way loud!
  • Very musical sound. Better for music than for home theater. Lower low frequency roll off than expected.
  • High-frequencies were harsh and overly-pronounced, upper bass was boomy and inarticulate, and mid-range frequencies seemed stubbornly recessed.
  • They have NO bass response. Treble is tinny and overwhelming. The cabinets are MDF covered in contact paper.

What customers say about "Features"
Monitor Audio Bronze 1 Walnut
  • Happy with the clean, crisp sound, with good heavy base.
  • They sound fantastic. For their size they put out a fair amount of bass but it’s not a boomy bass.
  • Well made, good sound, recommended. They look good, too.
  • Wonderful sound quality from bookshelf speakers - hadn’t appreciated such quality could be obtained from speakers of this size!
  • They have an open and clear sound stage in the mid range. The treble is crisp and detailed without being harsh and the bass goes low, really low.
