Monitor Audio Bronze 6G Range Launched
Monitor Audio's Bronze 6G loudspeakers have officially launched today.
Following their debut at this year's Bristol Hi-Fi Show, Monitor Audio has today officially launched its sixth generation Bronze loudspeaker family.
The rear-ported speaker range starts at £260 for a pair of Bronze 50 speakers and, what is exciting is that, rather than a few quality-boosting tweaks, Monitor Audio has totally redesigned and re-specced the Bronze line. So, not only has the Bronze loudspeakers received a complete upgrade in both sound and build quality, but even the cabinet sizes have changed.
The 6th Gen Bronze Series features a new Uniform Dispersion Waveguide to partner with Monitor Audio’s signature C-CAM Gold Dome Tweeter. We are told that this results in even sound dispersion, improved time alignment and wider directivity. Not only does the acoustically transparent hexagonal dispersion patterns on the tweeter covers lend the Bronze range some premium cachet, but it also allows the light to glint off those distinctive gold tweeter domes.
The new Bronze range also sees Monitor Audio adding Dolby Atmos modules for the first time. The new Atmos topper is fitted with an upward-firing 4-inch driver, and the units are designed to match the Bronze 50 standmounter and Bronze 200 floorstander cabinet tops. On the subject of cabinets, the units are constructed from braced 15mm MDF. They are available in Black (black vinyl and satin dark grey front baffle), White (white vinyl and satin light grey front baffle), Walnut (walnut wood vinyl and satin dark grey front baffle), and Urban Grey (grey wood vinyl and satin light grey front baffle).
All but the two floorstanders, the Bronze 200 and 500, are 2-way designs whereas those are 2.5-way and feature a pair of HiVe II ports. All the speakers (except the woofer, naturally) have a claimed upper in-room frequency range of 30 kHz. The low-end varies depending on cabinet size from 40 Hz for the 50, to 32 Hz for the 500.
Gold-plated terminals and Pureflow silver-plated oxygen-free copper internal cabling offer secure cable connectivity. The crossovers utilise premium grade, bespoke polyester film and electrolytic capacitors, air-core and low-loss laminated steel-core inductors for maximum signal transfer and reduced distortion, according to Monitor Audio.
