Introduction to Bookshelf Speaker Reviews
“Bookshelf” is a colloquial phrase used to describe small speakers as might befit placement on a bookshelf, though in any high fidelity implementation they will be placed on dedicated stands. While some may be designed as mid/high frequency models, often called “satellites”, which require a separate sub-woofer, most bookshelf speakers fall into the full-range category. While there are many excellent examples of bookshelf speakers which produce satisfying bass, most benefit from the accompaniment of a subwoofer.
