Meticulously articulate without compromising warmth
2 September 2014
Summary: ---for music: Startling clarity! The treble is free, airy and precise, without being harsh or metallic/grating. Mid-range is well-articulated, and vocals are present with you in your living room, to the point of making your mind visualize the singer at a microphone in front of you. You listen to words, rather than just experience a general good feel from the music.
Summary: Extremely fine fidelity for such small speakers. Everything from the soundtrack to "Superman" to a Beethoven symphony to delicate vocals comes thru crystal clear. Worth the price. I use these for tv speakers as well.
Summary: Wow! I could not be happier with these speakers. I had some large vintage Sansui speakers before I got these, and was never fully satisfied with the sound. I bought these and hooked them up, and the treble, mid-range, and bass were more detailed and powerful from the Bronze BX-2s than from the Sansui speakers. I am especially blown away by the quality of the bass that comes from these speakers. It's tight and punchy but not boomy at all.
Great speakers so far after a month with no problems

Summary: Great speakers so far after a month with no problems. Look better than pictures would lead you to believe. Can easily be put anywhere because of the front port. Take well to my yamaha R-S500 reciever. I normally try to keep them untuned, but they tune well if you want to do that. A subwoofer however would help these alot untuned.
Summary: After listening to B&W 685's ($649), Dynaudio DM 2/6 ($800), Wharfedale Diamond 10.1 ($349) I thought that these speakers were the best value for the money at $489. I like that they are front ported so that you can actually put them on a bookshelf and not have muffled sound. The Dynausio's were the best sounding speaker, but are rear ported and when I put them on the bookshelf the case was muddy. Freestanding they were outstanding!
Summary: Totally impressed , now that they are finally broken in . The tweeter went thru many change's during the break in period (my least favorite part ) . The reproduction of the female voice is outstanding , some of the best and detailed I hav heard at any price point . Not my main speaker's but a huge compliment to my existing system , needed to emphasize more mid's and high's . They blend in perfectly and the synergy is a nice match .
Summary: I have them at an acceptable level of wear in (18 hours of continuous mid volume use). In some ways they remind me of the theatre speakers from Electro-Voice and Klipsch because you can hear every detail in the music. For some people this could be a bit much, even irritating, but in the end if you have good recordings they sound very good and if they are bad masters you get every defect.
Summary: These Speakers sounds bigger than the size they have. I compared them with my Monitor Audio Silver 8i that i have as front speakers(BX 2 as back speakers),The BX2 sounds as open and warm as the 8i, the bass is deep for a small speaker not as deep as the 8i. If you also use them as back speakers let them run in on your frontspeaker position for the best result.
Summary: I bought a pair of these speakers to make the most of my Denon RCD-M39DAB mini hi-fi system, on the specific recommendation of Richer Sounds in Oxford, where the staff are seriously knowledgeable about h-fi. I'm delighted that I acted on their advice. These reasonably compact speakers punch above their weight in all regards. The bass response is warm and full, without being boomy or dull.
