KEF XQ40Price: $4500 per pair

Website: www.kef.com

Aron said: From top to bottom, KEF’s XQ flagship is an exceedingly well-built, classically styled tower that sounds as good as it looks. It may not be the last word in neutrality across the entire audioband, and it might require some close attention in being paired with other audio gear, but the best things in life are never easy, and I have yet to hear a speaker in this price range that can match its low-end prowess.

Reviewers' Choice

Read the SoundStage! Xperience review.

The gist: Great-value speaker with innovative KEF technology.

Von Schweikert Audio UniField 1Price: $3995 per pair

Website: www.vonschweikert.com

Philip said: In terms of precision and soundstaging, it is the finest speaker I’ve ever reviewed. It embodies a unique approach to cabinet design, and comes from the workshop of a man who has spent years fine-tuning his craft.

Read the SoundStage! Hi-Fi review.

The gist: Coaxial driver in a great box designed by Albert himself.

201011_focus_fp50Price: $4300 per pair

Website: www.focusaudio.com

Doug said: The Prestige FP50 is not inexpensive, but it will be ideal for a particular type of listener: someone who wants exceptional refinement of build quality and sound in a loudspeaker that will complement a smallish listening room.

Read the SoundStage! Hi-Fi review.

The gist: Almost SOTA sound, but needs a sub.

Compact WZ-5 SEPrice: $4500 per pair

Website: www.grantfidelity.com

Colin said: The Compact WZ-5 SE Collector’s Edition isn’t a totally bad speaker, but it doesn’t perform at anywhere near the level of such peers as the Definitive Technology Mythos ST, PSB Synchrony One ($4500/pair), or even the less-expensive Paradigm Studio 100 ($3599/pair).

Read the SoundStage! Hi-Fi review.

The gist: Just not very good.

201010_ml_motion12Price: $1499.95 per pair

Website: www.martinlogan.com

Ron said: . . . the Motion 12 did the midrange very well indeed. If MartinLogan made a point of focusing on this aspect of music reproduction in the design of the Motion 12, then I can hardly fault that choice. Ultimately, the Motion 12 shines where it matters most.

Read the SoundStage! Access review.

The gist: MartinLogans for everyman.
