Introduction to Floor Standing Speaker Reviews

As the name implies, these are speakers which are large enough to be placed on the floor yet still produce more or less ideal sound for a someone in a typical seated posture. They are almost exclusively full range designs often with multiple woofers and the best models will incorporate a mid-range driver. Designs might include ported, acoustic suspension, and other more esoteric variations. Some even include built in powered sub-woofers.

Polk Audio T50 Speakers Review

Polk Audio T50 Speakers Review

When the Secrets Team contacted me about reviewing a pair of new Polk Audio speakers I got excited because I felt like I was going to see an old friend. Back in the 1980’s I sold Polk Audio at the audio store I worked at. I have fond memories of that time. I met Mathew Polk (and Golden Ear maven Sandy Gross who was with Polk at the time) before the famous Polk SDA era. Back then the Polk 5, 7, and 10 models were a super value for audiophiles on a budget. A good, fun bunch of guys worked with Polk back then. Polk was establishing themselves as a no nonsense, give the consumer a great speaker at a great price company. So I was curious to see if the latest Polk speaker would be like a similar value of its famous predecessors.

Paradigm Millenia LP XL and LP 2 Speakers and Seismic 110 Subwoofer Review

With nice styling and remarkable sound quality, the Paradigm Millenia LP speakers are an excellent choice for anyone that lacks the room for big tower speakers but craves better than soundbar fidelity. The Seismic 110 sub rounds out the bottom end with help of Paradigm's Perfect Bass Kit. This incredibly thin speaker system from Paradigm can deliver the sonic goods for both movies and music listening.

Legacy Aeris Floor-standing Speakers Review

Introduced in 2012, the Legacy Aeris speakers have become some of the most acclaimed speakers in recent memory. They are massive 4-way floorstanding speakers with dual powered 12" subwoofers in each tower. They are distinctive for many reasons with the most significant reason being their one of a kind room correction and time alignment capabilities.
