Select two speakers:
Sony SSCS3 vs. Aperion Audio Intimus 5B
Sony SSCS3 3-Way Tower Speakers
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.
Aperion Audio Intimus 5B Bookshelf Speakers
Originally sold through Internet-direct retailer Aperion Audio, these speakers are now discontinued, but are an excellent deal if you can find them used. Known for their smooth reproduction and transparent soundstage.

Notice: the above comparisons are based on the dimensions of a bounding rectangle that would fit the front face of a speaker, or in the case of volume, the measurements are based on a bounding cube that would fit the entire speaker. The measurements will not factor in individual differences such as curves or other variations in the speaker shape. Do not use these measurements as an estimate of the internal speaker volume.
