A midsized rear-ported bookshelf, featuring a 5.25” low-frequency transducer and a folded motion high frequency transducer, which MartinLogan claims replicates much of the performance of their high-end elecrostatic speakers. May need to be paired with a subwoofer if sub-60Hz bass is a priority.

Some Klipsch bookshelf speakers are not recommended for nearfield/desktop listening due to their wide-dispersion horn tweeters, but these are an exception. Excellent, accurate sound with ample bass, these can be paired with a matched 10” subwoofer or used alone as powerful desktop speakers or studio monitors.

Please Note: the above comparisons are based on the dimensions of a bounding rectangle that would fit the front face of a speaker. In the case of volume, the comparisons are based on a bounding box that would enclose the speaker entirely. These measurements do not take into account variations in the speaker shape, such as curves, diagonal edges, or cutaways. These measurements cannot be relied upon to measure the internal volume of the speaker.
