Balanced Mode Radiator Drivers

The video opposite shows how our Balanced Mode Radiator (BMR) technology combines the movement of two speaker types to vastly improve the sound you hear. Pistonic speakers move in a backwards and forwards motion, flat panel speakers use 'bending wave' principles, but our BMR drivers combine the best of both.

By replacing the traditional tweeter with a BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) driver, the Aero 2 offers a radical difference in audio quality compared to its rivals. Using the BMR shifts the crossover point between tweeter and woofer away from the usual 3kHz, right at the middle of the human ear's most sensitive hearing range, to a less problematic 250Hz. The result is a more natural, immersive and coherent sound.

Wide sound dispersion

The BMR driver construction also delivers a more room-filling sound. This makes them ideal for modern homes and room layouts where speakers might not end up placed optimally for traditional stereo audio. You can place the Aero 2 where you want and still get great stereo and surround effects.

Increased bass performance

As well as offering a more coherent sound at the top end, moving to a 250Hz crossover between BMR and traditional drivers and subwoofers offers advantages at the bottom end too. Aero cone drivers and subwoofers are specifically designed to complement the BMR drivers - producing cinematic, immersive sound with sumptuous and accurate bass.

Premium construction

Aero cabinets are designed not only to look classic, discreet and stylish, but also are constructed using CAD techniques and critical bracing to minimise distortion and maximise audio quality.

“The BMR drivers in this ground-breaking speaker mean it can still make a big noise – listen to Adele belting it out over some brass and you'll get goosebumps.”

"The Aero 2 is a bold piece of engineering by Cambridge Audio. Its BMR unit provides an expansive soundstage that is unrivalled at the price."

United Kingdom November 2013
Hi-Fi Choice

"Just in case you hadn't noticed then, I love the new Cambridge Audio Aero 2s; they're an exotic little loudspeaker that's simply not built in quite the same way as its rivals - and for good reason. The result is an extremely open and seamless sound."

United Kingdom August 2013
Hi-Fi News

"It displays a far more couth, civilised and polished performance than its price would suggest... With so few flaws and so much to love, this little loudspeaker just gets on with the job of making music in an enjoyable yet inoffensive way."

United Kingdom May 2014
BBC Music Magazine

"a fine, detailed pair of speakers that will do justice to more or less any music you care to play on them"

United Kingdom November 2013
Home Cinema Choice

"The BMR drivers help deliver a big, cohesive 5.1 soundstage that fills a room better than most packages at this price, while its considerable muscle will leave you invigorated and entertained."
