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.

These small monitor speakers from NHT deliver clean imaging and accurate sound due to ruggedly braced cabinets, and don't seem to suffer from the inneficiency of many competitors in their class. Their stated 85 Hz low end might be a stretch however, so it is best to set these speakers to ”small” and set up your receiver crossover accordingly.
