Monitor Audio Bronze BR5
9 October 2009
Excerpt: If you've been reading What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision for a while, you'll be aware of the long-running contest between Monitor Audio's BR5 and KEF's IQ5. You'll also probably be aware that Monitor Audio has lost this particular round, and lost a star in the process. Don't go thinking that means these are bad speakers though.
Pros: Smooth, refined and likeable delivery, deep bass, detailed treble and textured mid-range, great build quality
Cons: Missing some of the dynamic excitement of the very best
Excerpt: The BR5 is a mid-range model from Monitor Audio's new BR (Bronze Reference) line-up, which replaces the earlier Bronze range. In most cases, the changes are model for model. The BR5, however, is a completely new design, similar in principle to other BR series models, but at a new size and price point.
