This week we have been doubly excited at taking delivery of new speakers from both Monitor Audio and Rega!
Monitor Audio's Bronze range has always represented great sound quality and finish at very realistic prices but the new Bronze range has set the bar even higher with all new drive units taking technology and design elements from the more expensive, Silver, Gold and even Platinum ranges.
Bronze 6 in Rosemah finish is currently being run in and already sounding stunning in our dem room. It's an incredible amount of speaker for £700.00, both physically and musical performance. Very punchy fast bass with no overhang and a detailed and sweet top end.
If you are looking for a bit of a bargain we still have one demo pair of oak BX1 available for £159.00. Not quite as good as the new Bronze 1 but at £71.00 less, still a great speaker at a budget price.
We also have one demo pair of black BX5 left priced at £399.00. It's a massive £100 off and £150.00 less than the new Bronze 5.
From Rega we have received our new RX1 stand mounter and RX3 floor stander with RX5 due soon. These new speakers are a big step forward with bass/mid drivers and superbly finished new heavier cabinets with much cleaner looking grilles.
Our demo RX1 in walnut looks superb...
...as does our RX3 in cherry. It's a light enough finish to complement oak or Maple furniture too.
The price points are higher than the previous RS range, reflecting the substantial improvement in drive units, sound and build quality. RX1 is £798, RX3 is £1298 and RX5 is £1698. Black Ash finish is also an option along with Walnut and Cherry.
Those with an eye for a bargain may be interested in a chance to snap up our last demo pair of RS3 in Cherry for £619, a massive saving of £159 on the original price of £778 and less than half the price of Rega's new first floorstander, the RX3! The cabinets are unmarked and we have the boxes.
Whether you want to grab yourself some bargain ex-demo speakers or listen to new models from Rega or Monitor Audio plus any other delights in store, we hope to see you soon.
