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.

Like their bookshelf-sized cousins, the Sony SS-CS5s, these towers from Sony feature a ”super tweeter,” claiming high-end response to 50,000 Hz and superior off-axis response. Some may find the bass response a bit lacking for a tower, but their imaging and soundstage rivals speakers costing hundreds more.

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 cube 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.
