This package includes the Onkyo A9010 and Monitor Audio Bronze 2 Black

Onkyo A9010

Tuned for the best sound quality at its price, the Onkyo A9010 is first-rate performer.


Sound quality over bells and whistles

The Onkyo A-9010 puts sound quality above features. This means that while you won't find digital inputs and multiple outputs you do get decent quality components fitted. The UK tuned circuitry uses Onkyo's famous WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology) for a precise and dynamic sound. Discrete amplification, using quality components, also ensures low distortion and unrestrained power.

Ready for your record deck
With sales of vinyl on a roll, the Onkyo A9010 hasn't forgotten about your turntable. The built-in MM phono stage is compatible with the majority of turntable cartridges and compliments the sound of the rest of the amp - rich and smooth yet also detailed.

Quality headphone output
By using a dedicated headphone amplifier, the Onkyo delivers; even when your speakers are mute. With substantially more power than a typical portable player, the A9010 gets the best from your headphones - making them sound punchier and more revealing.

Solid construction for a better sound
The Onkyo's rigid chassis and casing not only looks good but also isolates the audio signal from vibrations. Gold-plated speaker terminals accept chunky cable and are internally connected via thick speaker plates rather than speaker relays, for reduced resistance.

System remote
The comprehensive yet logically laid out remote supplied with the A9010 operates a complete Onkyo Hi-Fi system. Navigating between amp, CD and tuner is easy with this intuitive handset.

For an amp that truly connects with the music, the Onkyo A-9010 is a passionate performer.

Monitor Audio Bronze 2 Black

As one of the best-sounding speakers in its class, the Monitor Audio Bronze 2 reigns supreme in its class.


The best Bronze so far

It's fair to say that the previous, multi-award-winning, ranges of Monitor Audio Bronze speakers have usually topped their class. Thanks to new drive units and the same attention to cabinet and crossover design, the latest Bronze range is the best yet. Take a listen and we're sure you'll agree.

Sound quality
The latest Bronze range comes with new C-CAM gold dome tweeters. These give the ideal balance between detail and smoothness. Upper frequencies stay clear and uncongested - even at high volume levels where inferior designs begin to distort. Despite being a stand-mount speaker, the Bronze 2 packs a dynamic punch. The new C-CAM woofer is larger than the one fitted to the Bronze 1 and it's a difference you can hear - especially with bass-rich music. Match it up to a good quality amp and you can expect an effortless sound with the talent to make all types of music sound 'real'.

The ideal speaker for
The Bronze 2 is very much the all-rounder of the Bronze range and perfect for use in stereo systems in small to medium sized rooms. Use them with a subwoofer and they also make very impressive speakers for home cinema in larger rooms. These are the first speakers in the Bronze range to offer bi-wiring, making them the perfect match for higher-end hi-fi systems and AV receivers that offer the option of bi-amping.

Stylish design, available in a choice of finishes
Using high quality MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard) cabinets with extensive bracing, the Bronzes are not just solidly built, they offer very low cabinet colouration for low distortion, too. The beauty within is wrapped in a choice of premium quality vinyl veneers. Choose between black, white or walnut for the best match with your decor.

Powerful-sounding but still domestic friendly, the Monitor Audio Bronze 2 remain amongst the best all-rounders in their class.

Speaker Enclosure Type
Type of speaker enclosure. Infinite baffle cabinets are sealed and so are often less fussy about placement. Usually they do require a little more power to drive, though. Bass reflex speakers are usually more efficient than infinite baffle designs but may require more care in terms of placement. Rear port designs, in particular, usually need at least 15-30cm (6 - 12 inches) between them and the wall behind, for a balanced bass response.
Bass reflex - front port
ONKYO A9010 & Monitor Audio BRONZE 2 Black is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely outstanding! You will not find a better hifi system for this price anywhere. The clarity of sound from this system is unbelievable, it handles everything you can throw at it effortlessly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You won't find a better Hi-Fi package at this price Superb sound, it's crystal clear and powerful across all music genres. Add a turntable and your old LPs if you still have them and relive your youth, you'll be in heaven.The professional reviewers weren't wrong when they gave this five stars and I see no reason to disagree with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Package First of all, let's look at the maths. On their own the Bronze 2s are £279, and you're getting this for £379 which means a highly-respected amplifier (if you read What Hi-Fi and/or Hi-Fi Choice) is yours for just £100 extra. It's an absolute steal. I auditioned the amp with the Wharfedale 220s first of all and these speakers won out by a nose. Many thanks to Ash at the Manchester Prestwich branch for his patience whilst I made my mind up...and for allowing the use of the demo room when I hadn't booked it in advance. The amp looks really basic but is well-deserving of its reputation as a decent budget offering and the speakers are equally as good: they haven't bedded-in yet but they are already a step above the much smaller Mordant-Short M10s that I had beforehand. This package is worth every penny...and if your branch has the walnut finish for the speakers, get those; they look nicer! :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mind. Blown. I had been contemplating a new setup for a while now, since purchasing a debut carbon record deck, I felt that I needed a system which will allow it to shine. After looking at a number of different options, I decided to go for the Onkyo A9010 coupled with the Bronze 2's, and I have been blown away with quality, clarity warmth and punch. This is a definite game changer at this kind of price. Thanks Norwich team for all the help.
