Found 10th May
Great saving for anyone looking at a new system. In store deal only.

Best prices for buying separately are:
Denon AVRX2300: £349
Monitor Audio Bronze 5 5.1 System: £1486
Total: £1835
Saving: £536 with this bundle!

I've called my local store about this and it is also available in the other 3 colours also (White, Walnut and Rose) despite what it says on the bundle deal.

Both the Denon AVRX2300 and the Monitor Audio Bronze 5 won What Hi-Fi awards in 2016 in their categories, so you really can't go wrong with this deal.

Hi, I notice this is going cold. As I am interested in buying a home cinema receiver and a speaker set up could you guys give a little insight into why this is cold and some examples of better deals with a Denon receiver and the Monitor Bronze 5 series speakers?

Phone Peter tyson see if they can beat Richer sounds price tell pt to send quote in email and get a better price off rs that's what I did and got extra speaker cable and hdmi cables but I did spend 4500 altogether

And a free bluray player and sub cable

"I did spend 4500 altogether"
it is just that moment when feels like everything you mention you got for free was already included in that price.

In general metal tweeters are not good for home cinema setups, in fact the Audyssey calibration that comes with this Denon will automatically apply a roll off filter for high frequencies.
IMO, something with silk dome tweeters like the Q Acoustics 3050 bundle would be better for HT - exceptional-av.co.uk/hom…tml , although the Q Acoustics sub isn't great (works fine for a small room < 12m2) so you could ask the store to swap the sub for something better like a 12" sub and pay the difference which would bring the bundle to about the same price as the MA one.

​Yes because it was more than someone else was offering and also better warranties

To those voting cold, aside from playing two companies off against each other, can you please show me where I can get this set-up for cheaper?

I've scoured the internet and the next best I can find is in OP.

Hi I`ve looked at the q acostics 3050i to go with my denon avr 3300w , do the floorstanders need a lot of spece around them in your opinion, thanks

This is the wrong site for getting heat on things like this. It's a great price for excellent speakers and AV Receiver.

I have the Golds and they sound amazing. Enjoy your purchase

They need a minimum of 200mm from the wall or you could use the included bungs if you don't have the space.

Metal Vs Fabric is a moot point. As with all things, it's how well it's built. I would rather have a better metal tweeter than a worse silk tweeter.

These speakers a highly regarded as a very decent first foray into a proper home cinema setup. What's interesting about this setup are the side/rear speakers that can be bi/di-pole to suit your living room and integrate better with the wife

This should be hot I think. I have these speakers except the sub with the older ax2200w amp and they are great. They have a much rounder sound than the Q acoustics in my opinion, but they also seemed cleaner sounding than the bronze 6 speakers. So I find them ideal for both cinema and music. For reference I have a bk electronics p12-300 sub in the matching black ash. I've not thought for a second that I made the wrong choice and in a 5m square room there are plenty of reserves in the volume stakes on both amp and speakers for any film. Can't comment on the atmos performance yet as the speakers are still waiting to go into the roof.

Is that not a really dear price for the bronzes? The tweeters are nowt on the silvers oO

I'm not sure how to answer that. This price is for a denon amp as well.

..and what are you talking about the silvers? Those have been around for ages and the reviews are universally positive.

I have the Denon 4300 and that would do those speakers more justice.

Also someone above mentioned the Audyssey roll-off. Can get the Audyssey app now that allows you to adjust the Audyssey curve so that you can get a flatter response which I have but not used yet.
This is good for music especially. And especially for SACD and DVD-Audio which can handle up to 100kHz signals. Don't argue we can't hear them, this is not an AV forum.

"Monitor Audio Bronze 5 5.1 System: £1486" that seems rather dear for RRP on Bronzes, given, as I say, that their tweeters are noticabley duller than Silvers...
