Price: $595 per pair


Diego said: If you’re looking for an attractive, well-built speaker in this price category that sounds great not only with well-recorded music but with all recording qualities, and you sometimes like to crank it up and let your inner rock star out of his or her cage, check out a pair of Monitor Audio Bronze 100s for their terrific sound.

Read the SoundStage! Access review.

The gist: Bigger sound than you’d expect at the price.
