angstrom_suonoPrice: $2194

Website: www.angstromloudspeakers.com

Vince said: With its home-theater speaker system of on-wall Suono models, Angstrom Loudspeakers has produced one of the best, and best-thought-out, lifestyle speaker systems I’ve had the pleasure of hearing.

Read the Home Theater & Sound review.

The gist: OK, we’ve said it: On-wall can be high end.

aperion_5t_db_300wPrice: $2829

Website: www.aperionaudio.com

He said: These are marvelous products. If your speaker-system budget limit is around $3k, then I’d short-list them. Turns out the loonies at Aperion aren’t so loony after all.

The gist: In this case, Internet-direct means high quality and great service.

atlantic_system1400_300w

Price: $1750

Website: www.atlantictechnology.com

Rob said: For someone looking for a complete 5.1-channel speaker system to enhance his or her audio listening experience without going broke, I recommend Atlantic Technology’s System 1400. A larger center-channel speaker with clearer dialogue and lower bass response would be nice, but otherwise, the System 1400 / SB 224 has a lot going for it.

Read the Home Theater & Sound review.

The gist: Good overall, but needs a better center-channel speaker. Deal breaker?

av123_elt525_300h

Price: $1246

Website: www.av123.com

Randall said: Paying careful attention to build and finish quality, AV123 has delivered a properly engineered speaker system that is also a great value well within the budgets of many. For only $1246, the ELT525 system can bring into your home the excitement of movie-theater sound. In short, this system could be the one and only speaker purchase the shopper on a budget ever makes.

The gist: Lotta speaker system, not a lotta money.

deftech_sts_300h

Price: $4355

Website: www.definitivetech.com

Roger said: The Mythos STS speakers comprise a compact system with striking looks and astonishing performance at a reasonable price. To my mind, there is currently nothing else on the market quite like the Mythos STS SuperTowers, or this surround system based on them.

The gist: Freakin’ killer! ’Nuff said.

deftech_procinema1000_300w

Price: $1724

Website: www.definitivetech.com

Vince said: Definitive Technology’s ProCinema 1000 system is a killer combination of looks and performance. Despite its sleek, high-tech-looking cabinets, it gives up little in performance to larger, conventional bookshelf speakers.

Read the Home Theater & Sound review.

The gist: Good-looking, high-tech sound that will fit most any environment.

Price: $4274paradigm_monitor11_300w

Website: www.paradigm.com

Vince said: With each subsequent speaker iteration that I’ve heard, Paradigm has outdone itself, and the Monitor 11 v.6 is no exception: it’s an outstanding speaker in all performance respects, including dialogue intelligibility, surround envelopment, and dynamics.

The gist: The Canadian powerhouse delivers yet again.

yambeka_300h

Price: $299

Website: www.yambekaaudio.com

Kevin said: With the exception of very large rooms, I can’t think of any other home-theater speaker system, at any price, that anyone could need. These terrific speakers are the first bona-fide audio deal of the millennium. Hands down.

The gist: $299 for all this? They must be kidding . . .
