Price: $1300 per pair
Philip said: It possesses enormous strengths, not least of which is a full, clean sound anchored by powerful, solid bass. The X2T’s midrange-forward sound might not be to everyone’s taste, but I think most listeners will appreciate the increased sense of presence it brings to the music. At $1300/pair, the X2T is well within the reach of those looking to invest in good speakers for the long term.
The gist: Reasonably priced floorstander with typical Paul Barton strengths.
