StereoWise: L.Speaker - Bookshelf - Monitor - no Standard


Sound is bound by laws of physics


A small kitten can meow quite loudly, but will always lose out to the roar of an adult lion. Loudspeaker builders nevertheless succeed in creating a good to particularly good sound in a compact loudspeaker. New technologies and developments in material make it very interesting, Keep in mind that if you want to install a monitor or bookshelf speaker, you will always need a standard. With a large number of speakers you can easily buy a separate stand that suits your choice of speaker. However, there are a number of models where you actually have no other choice to opt fot the matching manufacturer designed stand. On this page i try to do a representation of the speakers without a stand so that the choice to compare becomes even easier. Keep in mind: that these are target prices and can deviate at the time of the purchase perhaps due to offers on exchange rate changes of pound and dollars. ( all the prices are for a pair of loudspeakers ).
