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.

Like their larger siblings, the Motion 4i’s, the MartinLogan 2i speakers feature the company’s legendary electrostatic tweeter technology, and is often used in surround systems. They can be used as small bookshelf speakers and excel at surround channels as well.
