German website Hi-Fi Journal gives Bronze 50 and W10 their Top Product and Recommended Awards
Reviewer Matthias Fengler took a closer look at our Bronze 50 bookshelf speakers and our Bronze W10 subwoofer, and was so impressed he gave them a Top Product and Recommended Award.
"This Monitor Audio-Combination managed to bring a little smile to my face and to experience already known film titles once again in a brilliant way. Although the Bronze 50 is quite compact, I experienced them as very present and „in action“. Their precise way of dealing with effects and voices provided the right sound backdrop and I liked it from the very first note."
"Precision and detail reproduction are especially important for music playback, and this is what distinguishes the 2.1 system from Monitor Audio. Musicality is simply in the blood of the bookshelf speakers. Because no matter what genre or music era I was playing, whether the Eagles or Paul Kalkbrenner, the resolution of the Bronze 50 convinces with fine, elaborate details and emotional voice reproduction and the subwoofer underlines this with the appropriate seriousness. Fine guitar riffs by Mr. Slowhand / Eric Clapton are wonderfully extracted and presented to me, violins or other string instruments from classical music pieces are clearly differentiated and always combined in a harmonious stage setting. With electronic music like by Paul Kalkbrenner you can really experience the subwoofer. Here the W10 underlines the transparent and detailed high-midrange with an impressive and perceptible depth."
In conclusion, Fengler wrote:
"The package convinces in the test with its high-quality workmanship and modern design, its well-balanced and spatial sound image and the tight bass with control and pressure."
