2. Monitor Audio Monitor 300 Floorstanders
The Monitor 300s are a budget offering from the house of Monitor Audio. These floor standers are decent looking and honestly from a few feet away they look far more expensive than they actually are. These come with 3 165mm drivers of which two are dedicated bass and one handles both mid and bass. The tweeter is 25mm metal composite tweeter.
These loudspeakers pack some punch although they are definitely built to a price. They sing loud and clear mostly. Overall sound is well balanced. Handling of bass is phenomenal, playing all notes of bass with utmost authority and good levels of precision. Because tuning is flat they don’t have any exaggerated bass bumps.

Good volume capability.
Excellent sound presentation.

3. Emotiva Airmotiv T2+ Floorstander Speakers
The mighty Airmotiv T2+ are top of the line speakers from Emotiva and the do feel like it. Solid construction, extremely well dampened, decent looks, lots of mass. Even though lack extravagant finish of some of the competition they make up for that is the robust construction and build quality.
Much like every other product in their line up these loudspeakers are excellent performers. They are the perfect performance speaker in every sense of the word. Authoritative bass will literally make a sub-woofer redundant. Additionally crisp and airy highs from the AMT Airmotiv tweeter will always make you want to listen to them more. Mid range which is just right keeps all dialogues and vocals always clear and presented with right tonality. The instrument separation and stereo imaging is bang on the target. The 4 ohms impedance makes the it imperative that these are paired with a capable amplifier . Overall they are an excellent performers.
Excellent build quality.
Smooth & fast treble.
Transparent sound presentation.
Simple industrial looks.
Are power hungry.
Expensive since they have had a hold of market.
4. Focal Chorus 726V Floorstanding Speakers
Chorus 726V is the eldest sibling in the Focal Chorus 700 series of loudspeakers. These are very well built and somewhat compact floorstanding speakers. Thick cabinet walls and robust internal bracing help with resonances. These are 3 way speakers with one inverted-dome tweeter with an aluminum/magnesium alloy diaphragm, two 165mm woofers and one 165mm midrange driver with a different dust cap style.
Sonically the 726Vs sound impressive as soon as you start listening to them, they are really upfront and dynamic. The mid bass is really strong and although it doesn’t go really low, it does the job really well in fact too well, it never got muddy. At loud volumes the sound is a bit coarse. On the other hand the sound stage they develop is wide and spacious and these are lively speakers. Together with good looks, finish and all round musical capability they are a good buy.
Fast and agile presentation.
Little bright treble.
Slightly high upper bass performance.
5. Dali Spektor 6 Floorstander Speakers
Spektor 6 is a budget offering from Dali, infact it is their most low cost offering in floorstading speaker category. As a result, its a light weight build however the engineering inside shows the attention to detail. The exterior is plain, boxy and minimalist. The look low cost but not cheap. They don’t look bad but comparing to Dalis so of other offering it sure does feel low cost.
Place the Spektors in a decent sized room with breathing space and these start to show the they sound very well. The sound stage is wide and with plenty of detail. The Spektor 6s sound laid back and are warm speakers. On the other hand midrange and vocals are excellent. Subsequently the laid back tone makes them a very easy speaker to listen to. The treble is a bit lacking but it not too bad. The dispersion on these is very wide and this means you get the same sweet warmth of sound in a larger area in the listening environment. Bass is just apt and right there. However they don’t put out chest slamming bass. To sum up the Dalis are a good buy.
Natural sounding speakers.
Relaxed treble, means no fatigue.
Need a decent sized room and space at rear to perform best.
Lacks detailed sound.
6. Yamaha Ns-F160 Speakers Floorstander Speakers
Yamaha NS-F160 are a very good example of how a good speaker can be made which not only sounds good but infact is every bit as premium as can be. The speakers are well designed and have a sense of authority to them. The front grill covers the drivers while the big round port is exposed at the bottom, hinting at the power ‘eh! Moreover the side panels have rounded edge which accentuate the looks while aiding and preventing corner chips. These Yamaha towers are absolute beauty and are hard to fault, especially at the price point.
The audio performance of these speakers is average at best. While there is a bit of everything the overall musicality suffers. For instance the bass is not only boomy but also suffers from lack of depth. Similarly the highs and treble are strong, albeit a bit too strong at times. The midrange is good and is the saving grace in these speakers. The vocals, instruments sound phenomenal and impressive for the price. In any case if you add a dedicated subwoofer and put a crossover of 60 or 70 hz, not only does the boominess disappear but infact the floor standers sound much clearer and musical. It would seem that these speakers are power hungry (87 dB, sensitivity) and fare not so good in bass department. And as soon as that duty is delegated the speakers really make an impressive presentation, more so thanks to their fantastic imaging.
Elegant, durable build.
Faultless midrange setup.
Imaging is excellent.
Bass performance is lackluster.
Power hungry speakers.
7. Q Acoustics 3050 Floorstander Speakers
Q Acoustics 3050 floorstanders have got a clean look to them, are will built with decent weight. The cabinet is rather sturdy and damped. The curved corners and outrigger feet give it good overall ‘from space’ look.
The 3050s are a minimalist 2 way design and even the crossover has minimum component. The overall sound is impressive from these towers and they present good delicate sounds with utmost finesse. The bass is good with lots of wholesomeness to it, compressing ever so slightly at very high sound levels. The tweeter is equally good and presents all the instruments and musical notes with utmost clarity. In conclusion these loudspeakers perform well in their price bracket and are easy to power thanks to their relatively high sensitivity.
High sensitivity means they sing with low power.
Great vocals and dialogues.
Decent overall sound.
Bass is okay but can get muddy at high volumes.
A little coarse treble sometimes.
