Pioneer VSX-831 AV Receiver

Here no eye remains dry – and no streaming option inaccessible

With its six HDMI ports, the VSX-831 also has sufficient connection reserves for ambitious home theatres. Certainly not all playback devices will match the new UltraHD standard but might provide “only” normal FULL HD. For ease of use and the optimal use of suitable displays, the VSX-831 is therefore equipped with a quality video scaler which can convert full HD to 4K and also output the redesigned GUI user interface in this resolution. Sure, HD sound formats such as dts ES or Dolby TrueHD are also supported – the VSX-831 uses their potential through its new 32bit/384kHz DAC better still than previous models in this class.

Digital music delicacies are not only served over HDMI or S/PDIF, but also quite state of the art via network – either by cable or by built-in Dual Band Wi-Fi, and in DLNA streaming in full Studio Master resolution (DSD up to 5.6MHz, PCM up to 192/24). Even in the streaming services, quality defines all the signals. In addition to the popular Spotify Connect, the VSX-831 now also supports Deezer and Tidal, who offer subscriptions at full CD resolution.

On the other hand, whoever prefers to stream directly from their smart phone to the system can simply choose the option that works best at that point, with the compliments of AirPlay, Google Cast and not least the built-in Bluetooth receiver. Designed for maximum openness, nothing stands in the way of the VSX-831 providing listening pleasure.

Monitor Audio Bronze 2 (5.1)

Monitor Audio Bronze 2 AV Package (5.1)

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.

Design for Sound

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.

The New Bronze Range
