Heated!

Incredible speakers for the money, can find used on the bay at this price! Very balanced presentation, and the size of the cabinet means you get decent bass as well. Probably the best speakers money can buy for <£300.

Heated.
Bought a pair of these last year (used but in mint-condition) for about this price. Cracking deal for a new pair. I’m still impressed by the sound from these speakers, more bass than you’d ever expect from a compact bookshelf design. Heat!
What would be a good budget amp for these
Monitor audio and Seinheiser are my go to brands for audio. I have a pair of bronze's that I got with my first ever tax rebate in 2004, still going strong. Heat!
Just 45 quid for monitor audio bronze1 , denon dab38 mini hifi and sony mindisc recorder, from charity shop, about three weeks ago
Great speakers; have had them for a couple of months now. Absolute steal at this price.
Got them for about a year with Marantz mcr 611
Cracking set
Hot. Great price. Paid around £240 for mine a few yrs ago.
Really good speakers had them, upgraded to the Wharfedale floor stands 500 quid down to 199 at Richer sounds, better depth sound stage and base.
The denon dm series (pickup a good second hand one on eBay for 70 quid) or a new dm40 for 150, they go well with the monitors, very good match, the denon modest rated watt pump up enough loud and strong for most rooms and drives speakers hard and it’s a lovely looking classy machine in silver metal or even black

This or the q3020i, jamo 803, klipsch r51m. Anyone listen to them side by side before and an opinion that they would like to share.

Same price at Peter Tyson https://petertyson.co.uk/monitor-audio-bronze-2


Also includes 5m of QED cable.
I'm looking to move away from my sound bar, would these be suitable if I bought four of them for a 5.1 setup? If so what center speaker should I get? Sorry for the noob questions.

They would so great as 5.1, though might be a bit overkill for the rears. You could probably get away with something smaller if you preferred.

Personally I've always been quite a fan of Yamaha equipment finding it very nice musically. This amp of thiers comes in at a very good price has Bluetooth too (handy for streaming from a phone etc)...

I'd agree that unless you've got quite a big room and like things rather loud you might find the Bronze 2 a bit overkill at the back. Personally I'd likely go for something a little smaller and perhaps put the money saved (though at this price the money saved isn't going to be that much) towards as good a sub as possible

Thanks for the replies, I just saw that Centre speaker too. I've spent the best part of the last 3 days trying to get my head around all of this as I am totally new to it all.

Do the rear speakers have to be the same make? Originally I was looking to get these for the four speakers richersounds.com/wha…opy

Room wise its for a bedroom which is 3.5 x 3.5 meters. I don't want to spent too much If I don't need to.

A 5.1 system is probably overkill for a bedroom.

Do you really want a surround experience or just better sound?

It was a toss up between these and Dali Zensor 1s but ended up getting the Dalis. These did sound great though when I had a demo in Richer Sounds.

I have connected to a Denon DM41 which is then connected to my TV. I use for movies, XBOX and music and sound great.

Nope, but ideally you'd want the centre and left and right channels matching. Sub, and rears are less important. 5.1 in a bedroom may be overkill... Especially if you won't be watching that much 5.1 encoded content...

Personal opinion here, but every home cinema system I've purchased over the last 12+ years has had an microphone to conduct acoustic setup to ensure all the levels etc are right for your room. I think so long as your fronts are a matching pair, your rears match each other (but not necessarily the fronts) then it won't really matter a jot that they are all different. Most of the stuff that comes out the back speakers is ambient effects and I've heard a pretty good surround sound setup that used small cube satellites as rears, so size isn't that critical for them unless you want it all ear splitting loud.
And additional consideration, if you think you might use multi-channel stereo (I play my music in stereo through the rears and fronts) then you might consider a beefier pair of rears.

Agreed. Match fronts and center. Rears less important but I'd go for some that can handle a good frequency range, mainly low-end. You don't want tinny rears imo.
One thing I disagree with here is multichannel stereo for music. I don't like that

It's not one for the purists nor my preference but find I'm able to project noise around the room better without having the main speakers on the party wall at very high volume.
Got these connected - great sounding speakers, my only gripe is that the walnut is a lot darker than it looks in the pictures.
