New Side Mounted LCR Speakers advice

Hello - I'm on the hunt for some good quality side mounted TV speakers to pair with my E9 OLED. I had a Pioneer Kuro with the side mounted speakers for a long time, so I got spoiled with real decent TV sound. Was wondering what I should be looking for? My budget for this would be roughly $2500. Leon? Artisan? James? Paradigm? What's really good in this space for this price? Thanks for your help.

Not sure what you mean by "side mounted" I assume you mean speakers on either side of the TV. Are you just looking for the LCR or do you want 5.1 also do you have/want a sub?

Artisan I think has the best one, James has a good one.

Both have different applications.

Both work with you to make a custom fit for your TV which is cool.

Leave it at 8 ohms and call it a day :)

Yes, ones that mount to the tv sides. I don't have a sub yet, maybe/maybe not? This is a living room application, I have a home theater with a projector in the basement that's a more extreme setup. My wife doesn't like a heavy sub sound in her TV morning news watching! HA!

I think they may be discontinued ... also look at Leon speakers

Also look at this speaker adapter ..... and then something like the Atlantic tech speakers

You’d need an integrator/audio specialist.

Does the TV remain in place or do you pull the wall mount out and angle it as I assume you are talking about a wall mounted TV.

If the TV simply stays static you have a lot more choice for tall wall mount speakers that can be placed flush to the side of the TV.
