The Top 10 greatest audiophile speakers

The very best sounding speakers for less than $3,500 per pair. The brands may be unfamiliar, but each speaker a stand out winner.

It's not that they're bad, just unexceptional. Here's a Top 10 list and photo gallery of the very best-sounding speakers I've heard for less than $3,500 per pair. The brands may be unfamiliar, but each speaker is a stand-out winner. I will at some point do a Top 10 without price constraints. For now I want to highlight more affordable speakers that you can buy new.
