aperion_4t_300hPrice: $650 per pair


He said: The 4T asks little in terms of space, watts, or money, but play through them your favorite but imperfectly recorded LPs or CDs and they’ll make the most of the good that’s there while downplaying the bad. In a world of cynical hi-fi gear, the Aperion 4T is a true optimist.


Read the GoodSound! review.

The gist: Mini-floorstander with monster sound, direct to your door.

aperion_6t_300hPrice: $1390 per pair


He said: I had to keep reminding myself that these wonderful-sounding speakers are affordable by almost anyone’s standard, not just an audiophile’s. And these speakers always brought me closer to the music played through them.

Read the SoundStage! review.

The gist: Aperion’s flagships are only $1390 a pair and sound terrific. Refreshing. 

eggleston_dianne_300hPrice: $2500 per pair


He said: If you’re tired of the razor-like highs prominent in many of the home-theater-slotted speakers that cost between $2000 and 3000/pair, or you’re weary of speakers that seem designed more for extreme sound-pressure levels than for reproducing a recording’s finer details, or you don’t want a thin-sounding bookshelf model that’s unlistenable without a subwoofer, then the Dianne might be the speaker for you.


Read the Ultra Audio review.

The gist: Audiophile with $2500 to spend, meet Dianne.

dynaudio_x12_220hPrice: $1200 per pair


He said: But it’s the Dynaudio Excite X12’s considerable strengths that make it special, even unique -- I don’t know of another small speaker that plays quite like this one.


Read the GoodSound! review.

The gist: The Danes make another great little speaker. 

focus_fs8Price: $2990 per pair


He said: Focus Audio’s Signature FS8 is a killer speaker by almost every measure: It looks fantastic, it sounds wonderful, and its price is something many can afford.


Read the GoodSound! review.

The gist: Not exactly cheap, but hits all the right buttons.
