Best Tower speakers below 1000 dollars
Please mention 5 choices for best audiophile quality Tower speaker for Rock and jazz below 1000 bucks range from your personal listening experience.
I appreciate it.
Monitor Audio RS6. They are actually $1100, but can be had for less than $1000 online. They are also about to get much cheaper since a replacement line is soon to be released...
Well in addition to the Monitor Audio mentioned above, these are some popular brands I have had in my home that I can vouch for (they are very different sounding, though):
- NHT Classic Four (new), if you don't mind the fingerprint-magnet-effect
- Quad 22L (used)
- Totem Arro (new), Staff (used)
- Dynaudio Audience Series (used)
- Polk Audio LSi15 (used)
- Focal-JM Lab Chorus series (used)
- Klipsch RF series
On the more exotic side, I have been very impressed with these brands:
- Odyssey Audio
- Talon Audio
- MB Quart
Sorry, pal, but if it talks like spam and walks like spam, it is spam.

The BR5's at least, work best with a sub. Bass is a little weak for my tastes with most music types.
Display: Samsung PN50B550 Plasma TV
Electronics: Onkyo TX-SR606 AVR, Marantz CD5001 CD player, Sony BDP-S550 bluray
Speakers: Monitor Audio BR5 towers and BRLCR centre, Dayton Audio in-wall surrounds
Sub: Outlaw Audio LFM-1 Compact
Wiring: Belden and Canare speaker cables, Monoprice and Monster interconnects
Control: Wired Home IR distribution system, Logitech Harmony 550 remote
I'm also in the market for new speakers and gave the T45s a real good listen a few nights ago and liked what I heard. Very nice speakers for the price.

A pair of Dynaudio 52s with the right amp will out perform a lot of so called Tower speakers.
B&W DM-603, JBL L-100s on a nice set of stands,JBL 18-TI also on a nice set of stands. The smaller speakers like the jbl 18-ti or a nice set of paradigms on stands will outperform the big tower speakers, and are more versatile for placement. just my .02 cents worth
