High-End Amplification Breathes Life into Music
To realize our aim of reproducing authentic Hi-Fi sound in one compact component, we include Three-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry—the same technology used in our range-topping Reference Series Hi-Fi amplifiers. The design uses minimal negative feedback to preserve the energy and vitality of the original performance while unique three-stage topology, discrete output transistors, and a solid metal heat sink cut distortion to negligible levels. The result?
All-New 32-bit D/A Conversion with VLSC™ Technology
Smoothly decoding Hi-Res PCM and Double DSD (as well as other digital sources) is the flagship AK4490 VERITA 768 kHz/32-bit stereo D/A converter. As well as reducing audio degradation, the device boasts outstanding THD+N performance and an impressively wide dynamic range. The DAC works in harmony with Onkyo’s VLSC (Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry), a system that reduces high-frequency pulse noise generated by the clocking signal. Together, these D/A conversion technologies produce brilliantly clear and detailed sound from any digital source.
Discrete Headphone Amplifier with DIDRC
The CR-N765 doubles as a dedicated DAC/amp for headphone listening. Discrete Class A/B headphone amp circuitry delivers 150 + 150 mW of power—enough to drive any headphones rated between 16 and 600 Ω. The amplifier also benefits from proprietary DIDRC (Dynamic Intermodulation Distortion Reduction Circuitry) originally developed for our Reference two-channel components. This technology reduces high-frequency pulse noise to enhance clarity. With onboard 32-bit D/A conversion, you can simply move the symphony inside your head any time you want without compromising the power and emotion of your listening experience.
Built for Maximum Fidelity
Housed inside a thick 1.2 mm anti-vibration metal chassis are top-quality audio components. A custom power transformer links to the symmetrical L/R channels via short signal pathways to reduce errors in stereo playback. Two large 4,700 µF capacitors (sourced from our top-of-the-line P-3000R pre-amplifier) keep a deep reserve of power on hand for stellar dynamic performance, and there’s also a dedicated transformer for standby mode. Processing and amplification blocks are separated to minimize noise, and your speakers are treated to gold-plated banana-plug-compatible terminals. From top to toe, this receiver is built for high-fidelity sound.
Connect iPod/iPhone and USB Flash Drives
The front-panel USB input enables a direct-digital connection to iPod, iPod touch, and iPhone, meaning the CR-N765 performs digital-to-analog conversion for vastly improved sound quality. The connection also supports playback of compressed, lossless, and Hi-Res file formats (including DSD) stored on USB flash drives.
Optional aptX® Bluetooth Streaming
With the addition of our UBT-1 Bluetooth dongle (sold separately) you can stream almost any digital audio source to the CR-N765 via compatible devices. Bluetooth 3.0 and aptX technology enhances the quality of wireless audio by compensating for audio information lost in the compression process. This mini-system also supports the UWF-1 Wireless LAN adapter if a wired connection isn’t convenient.
Phase-Matching Bass Enhancement
PM Bass optimizes low frequencies while preserving mid-range clarity. It counters phase shifting (which generally occurs in the all-important mid-range zone occupied by vocals) by synchronizing frequency timing. The result is deep, well-defined bass that won’t blur vocals or strings.
Monitor Audio Bronze 1 Speakers
New Bronze: Purity and Precision for the Price of an Ordinary Speaker
Monitor Audio’s story is intertwined with the evolution of our world-famous speaker lines. Driven by top-down innovation and ever more accurate acoustic analysis, each generation has grown in capability, achieving award-winning levels of quality, performance and value with every introduction. Our restless desire for the most blissful combination of great sound and design at all price points, demands that where possible we share the tech across ranges so that driver designs and analytic tools developed upstream serve to enhance ranges further down. For example this allows the New Gold series to benefit from a version of Platinum’s extraordinary C-CAM® ribbon tweeter; for Silver to inherit Gold’s ‘dished’ C-CAM driver designs, and similarly for New Bronze to absorb the latest refinements in tweeter and driver engineering from the Silver project. In many ways New Bronze has everything to gain from Monitor Audio’s dynamic forty-year design heritage. Enriched as it is with elements of Platinum, Gold and Silver, the brilliant New Bronze series will transcend the expectations of its price class and eclipse even its venerated multi-award winning predecessor Bronze BX.
New Generation, Different Class
Our latest champion moves up a gear from BX and rival budget speakers because New Bronze is simply in a class of its own. The features speak for themselves. For the first time we’re using spectacular steel-grey C-CAM driver cones for a seamless blend with finishes, available in a choice of Black Oak, Walnut, Rosemah and a new White Ash. Invisible driver fixings and floating magnetic grilles add to the impression of streamlined sophistication, lending new Bronze the look and feel of a premium range. It sounds like one as well. Drawing on our flagship technologies we’ve over-engineered the acoustic design to deliver lower distortion and a wider response from seven beautifully matched, deceptively slender models. Combined for natural full-range music and home cinema sound, New Bronze will transform the quality of your home entertainment at a price that won’t break the bank.
New Bronze One
We’ve optimised and tuned the diminutive Bronze One to be the most accurate of any Bronze generation mini, imbuing the design with true ‘monitor’ status. The 5½” C-CAM bass driver has been created to out-perform a larger conventional driver and results in a cleaner, more dynamic delivery, even at high power levels. The Bronze Ones are able to play much louder and deeper than their compact size would suggest from close-to-wall positions in smaller room environments. Perfect for stand or shelf, or wall-mounted using our Monitor Audio Speaker Mount (MASM), the Bronze Ones will deliver great sound where space is at a premium.
- New C-CAM gold dome tweeter
- New 5½” bass driver with ‘dished’ C-CAM cone profile
- HiVe II port technology
- Single bolt-through driver systems for increased cabinet rigidity and driver/baffle de-coupling
- High quality crossovers with premium grade Polypropylene film capacitors used throughout
- Rigid 18mm MDF cabinet construction employing radial and cross-bracing techniques for high rigidity and low cabinet coloration
- Invisible magnetic grille fixing
- Premium quality vinyl veneer finishes in Black Oak, Walnut, Rosemah and a new White Ash
- ¼”x20 TPI thread for wall mount bracket options (optional Universal wall mount bracket – UWB).
New Bronze Drivers
All new C-CAM driver configurations give New Bronze the tonal accuracy and consistency of a class leader. Harnessing driver technology developed for our acclaimed mid-market Silver models, New Bronze explodes the myth that high power handling with low distortion belongs exclusively to the expensive world of audiophile design. The proprietary bass and mid drivers responsible for Bronze’s open, expressive and naturally rhythmic quality utilise a new type of ‘dished’ C-CAM cone, which employs the entire cone surface to radiate sound. Unbroken by the centre pole-piece aperture of conventional driver designs, the cone is inherently more rigid and efficient while being less prone to break-up under high drive conditions, resulting in exceptional detail resolution and life-like tonality. Ingeniously, the driver’s voice coil is thermally coupled to the back of the cone, which draws heat away from the coil for better power handling and optimal operation at all volume levels. Above the drivers, a new 25mm C-CAM Gold Dome tweeter extends each system’s frequency response to an ultra-sonic 30kHz, allowing the full reproduction of harmonic frequencies vital to the accurate reproduction of, say, the decay of a piano string or the crash of a hi-hat. Within the New Bronze tweeter, an innovative venting system allows air to flow outside the tweeter’s magnet assembly into a rear loading chamber, preventing air from being compressed at the back of the dome for lower distortion, reduced mechanical resonance, and improved damping. Structural improvements in dome geometry and drive mechanism have boosted accuracy and extension at the top end of the tweeter’s range as well, generating the extraordinary high frequency quality that helps to define the sound of new Bronze.
New Bronze System Features
Enhancing system performance is our ‘bolt-through’ driver mounting design, first devised for our Radius Series models but now adopted by all our speaker ranges. The drivers are individually mounted on a through-bolt which fixes at the back of the cabinet and tensions the driver at the front. Cleverly this triple-action feature braces the cabinet structure for lower box colouration while removing the need for conventional front fixings, reducing unwanted driver/cabinet resonance and simultaneously boosting aesthetics. The reflex loading found on all New Bronze models (excluding Centre, FX and W10) is of the HiVe®II variety, borrowed from the Gold range, which uses rifled port grooves to speed the air in and out of the cabinet for cleaner, more powerful bass and a superior transient response. Best possible signal integrity through the crossover is supplied by polypropylene film capacitors, air core and laminated steel core inductors. With slightly higher overall impedance than their BX predecessors, the New Bronze line-up offers superior system-building flexibility with a wider choice of partnering equipment.
