Best bookshelf speakers 2019: budget to premium
Wanting recommendations for high quality bookshelf speakers that will sit on a bookshelf and within inches of the back wall. I realize this is not ideal, and that I may wish to plug rear ports. Will consider new or used. The room is large 17' x 20' 9' ceiling and is open to the kitchen. The TV and 2-channel audio system will play through these speakers. The NHT Classic 3 is also an excellent speaker, and it is sealed; no ports at all.
Big speakers might give you the meatiest sound, but not everyone has the space, budget or inclination for a set of floorstanders. Instead, a small set of speakers can give you a pretty amazing listening experience. They're known as bookshelf or sometimes standmount speakers. And as the name suggests, they're small enough to fit on a bookshelf, on stands, on a desk or a table. But that isn't necessarily where you should put them. Some speakers demand a bit more space in order to perform at their best, so make sure you check the manufacturer's recommendations before buying, while crucially all of these speakers will benefit from a dedicated pair of speaker stands. You should also see how easy these speakers are to partner with other products, as your complete system will determine the final performance.
