Wharfedale Diamond 9.1's have the best bass of any bookshelf I've ever heard. It's ridiculous how good and tight the low end is on those speakers considering they use a 5.25 inch midbass driver. I...

How many speakers are you looking for? Just 2 I assume?

If you're limited to $1K, that sort of narrows it down. If you're looking at bookshelves, I would look at the Salk CAOW1's or MBOW1's....

For the money, you really can't beat:

Monitor Audio RS6's. They've got a very small footprint and great extension at both ends of the frequency. For the size and for around $1000 for the pair,...

I have a pair of Diamond 9.1's and they're an absolute steal for $240 a pair shipped. VERY capable speaker. If the 9.0's are anything like them, $100 a pair is a phenomenal deal.

I'm a proud owner of a pair of RS6's in black. I've loved these towers from Day 1 and I've had nothing but good things to say about them all around. But I think I may have stumbled upon the perfect...

I recommend Wharfedale Diamond 9.1's or 9.2's. I have a pair of 9.1's and they're phenomenal from top to bottom, IMO. They're the biggest-sounding little speaker I've ever heard. They've got a...

Hey mizzer. Definitely bad things going on in that setup. But no matter how bad it is, I would NOT go the sound bar route. IMO, the best 3.1 (or 3.0) setup beats the crap out of even the most...

Yes, size-wise, the electrons in your copper wires really don't care whether there's 14 or 12 awg of "track". Either is plenty for them to run on.

Sennheiser PMX-100's. Nice and open, "neckband" style (behind the head), and sound 90% as good as my Sennheiser HD555's at half the price (that is to say, phenomenal). Might not be that good for...

Have you looked into inexpensive receivers? In the end, it might be worth your trouble to get one. If your DVD player/receiver goes on the fritz, you'll be out of sound completely. And you can play...

Monitor Audio RS6's are about $1K a pair. Mine aren't going to put my sub out of business or anything but they kick pretty hard for such small towers. I get usable response down into the mid-40Hz...

Sanity? There's none of that here. And the reason we have none is because of salesmen like this.

Is there a way to put it behind the screen? I think that would be ideal.
