KEF R5 5.2.4 Speaker System
(April/May 2019) Read Review

PSB Alpha T20 Speaker System
(April/May 2019) Read Review

PSB have long been champions of the high-value, audiophile-approved speaker, and the company's update of its Alpha line cements that reputation. The styling of this system based around the T20 tower may be basic, but a neutral balance and close timbral matching between models makes it a standout. $1,800 (as tested), psbspeakers.com

Paradigm Monitor SE 3000F Speaker System
(June/July 2019) Read Review

This entry level package from Paradigm based around its Monitor SE 3000F tower impressed us with its overall performance, and also with how well it measured up to the company's pricier models.

ELAC Navis ARB-51 Powered Speakers
(June/July 2019) Read Review

Active loudspeakers—models with built-in amps—are becoming increasingly popular, and this model from ELAC struck us as a particularly good example of the category owing to its impressive tonal accuracy and dynamic ability, as well as its onboard EQ to separately tweak low, middle, and high frequencies. $2,000, elac.com

Coming from Monoprice, it's also a high-value proposition. $2,900 (as tested), monoprice.com
