Audiophile Grade In-wall and On-wall Speakers Reviews

Not everyone can have bookshelf or floorstanding audiophile speakers in every room of their home but nearly everyone has a taste for speakers that truly sound fantastic. Today's high end in-wall and on-wall speakers can finally compete with the uber-high-end floorstanding audiophile speakers. Many home theater enthusiasts are using in-wall and on-wall speakers to save space in their rooms, allowing for larger projector screens and Flat HDTVs without having to compromise on audio performance.
