Rated 5 out of 5 Excellent Sound!
I was origionally looking to upgrade my existing Wharfedales to a newer model, but on listening to them, they lacked something? I listened to a few others until the guy at Richer Sounds then brought the Monitor Audio BX2 Blk into the room for me to listen to and wow what a difference. The sound quality Is unbelievable! Good deep solid bass and nice crisp treble.
I couldn't wait to get them home and set them up with my Teac amp & Marantz CD player and I was not disappointed.
They improve in sound each time I play them. These speakers are quality and sound and look more expensive than they are! 100% pleased with them.

Rated 5 out of 5áby AlexR1 Simply superb sound
I bought the Monitor Audio BX2s to pair with a Cambridge Audio Azur 350A amplifier and to replace my ancient (but still sounding good) Mission 761s from the Eighties!
I was originally looking at Cambridge Audio, Q Acoustics and Wharfedale speakers all around the ú150-ú200 mark but Guido in The Maidstone branch (who was superbly knowledgeable and helpful) noted my music and sound preferences and suggested the Monitor Audios; what a brilliant recommendation!
The speakers will probably get even better once run-in but I think they already sound superbly detailed with a tight, punchy and extended bass and seem to suit my Cambridge amp well.
Thanks once again to Guido at Maidtone for such excellent service.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Jetley Excellent for the money !
Just picked up these for my budget 2nd system , didnt expect too much from these little bookshelf speakers , but all i can say is WOW ! I own the bigger floorstanding BX5's so i thought i would try these and im glad i did , one thing i was worried about was placement and lack of bass response , again these excelled in my expectations , good clean crisp treble , and the detail from my modest low end setup is just amazing , cant comment on the volume levels as im running them in still , but they sound good at modest volume levels . So to sum up a happy customer so far , would definitely recommend .

Rated 5 out of 5áby clamjouster100 A worthwhile upgrade
Bought these to replace some Wharfedale Diamond 9.1's I'd been using in my kitchen set up which to my ear just weren't cutting the mustard. Really glad I did as the sound quality jump has been significant. It's not really a fair comparison but the level of detail these put out is on another level the the highly regarded Wharfedales.
In other rooms I have significantly more expensive speakers than these but in terms of finish and build quality these compare very favorably.
Bottom line is they look and sound better than their price tag suggests.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Swearingdad Good sound. Solid construction.
Brought these to pair with a Marantz McR610. Super solid construction, look good, easy to attach speaker cable (Cambridge Symphony 400). Sounds good especially for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5áby eddie705 Golden stand mounts.
Straight out of the box and these speakers look far more expensive than they actually are very well designed and built. On first using them though, I thought they might be faulty. They sounded horrible, far too bright and really ear piercing. Obviously speakers need a little time to run in, anyway it soon became apparent that the tweeter was causing all this harshness. Being a metal dome tweeter. Anyway persistence paid off and after 3 days both drivers started to relax and gel nicely. It's been almost 3 weeks now and all I can say is wow! These speakers sound Superb. Really clear treble and ample bass response.very coherent at low volume as well.Great speakers at an unbelievable low Price.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Michalis86 Sound great and look great
There are cheaper speakers out there, but I paid a bit more for these just for looks. I've had to turn the bass down a bit as these are quite powerful. The finish is great, the ports on the back top quality (with bi-wire capability), and the magnetic speaker grills are very clever ( no more taping mine on!).
Power is matched nicely with a Harmon Kardon AVR171

Rated 5 out of 5áby JJJJ Nice sound.
Great sounding speakers. My first 'decent' speakers, all the others I have had were really cheap, so these sound amazing! Went on whathifi reviews, and seems to be paying off.
