Why do people always think they need floorstanders when they are on extremely tight budgets? Why not bookshelf/monitors in this range?In my opinion you are going to get a better speaker with a tight budget over a floor stander.
But that's me.. when your budget rises then I guess it's a better argument as room size, music vs HT blah blah blah...
Heck, I use mointors and a great sub and I am thrilled. And my budget was not confined and I had options. The monitors still won out over many many tower contenders (with REL sub).
For $500 or less I would buy these but once again you have to do what you think is best.
Are these the best in the Focal line, no of course not but I certainly would entertain them for under $500. And Focal is totally respected speaker mfg.
Though shall not fear bookshelf/monitor
and this is just my thoughts and opinion. You want towers and think that is best for you then by all means go that direction.
