The 10 Best Audiophile Speakers


End of the year roundup articles are a great sources of research for future purchases. Its allows you to quickly weed through the latest hype and view the products that clearly made a lasting impression on the reviewer. At Cnet.com Steve Guttenberg has compiled a what he deems the 10 best audiophile speakers under $3500 a pair. At $1,895 a pair Magnepan's MG 1.6/QR, pictured above, took the top spot. Jerry Del Colliano at hometheaterreview.com also compiled a list of the 10 best audiophile speakers but didn't restrict the price point and focused more on the speakers that he views will have the most money to value ratio for the future generation of audiophiles. His counter list can be found here.

Hey,

Over the years I've evaluated speakers in my personal time based on several subjective criteria and one of them is "Dynamics". I've found EVERY flat panel speaker to be lacking on dynamics over the years. While they have improved and sound great when placed in close proximity, in larger rooms they lack any serious 'punch'. Over the years tonality has improved in flat speakers and the dipole design gives them super imaging, the dynamics are always below standard.
