Floorstanding and Audiophile Loudspeaker Reviews

While the rest of the home theater world may be cashing in on the LED HDTV craze, you still need a pair of floorstanding loudspeakers if you're trying to achieve a true, full-range sound in your home theater. For the audiophile in you there's nothing better than pair of reference grade floorstanding loudspeakers from the likes of Bowers & Wilkins, Revel, Wilson Audio, Paradigm and more. Tight on space? Today's modern floorstanding loudspeaker isn't the boxy black coffin from days of old-many have become streamlined pieces of art featuring finishes that rival some of the world's most exotic cars.
