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.

Designs might include ported, acoustic suspension, and other more esoteric variations. Some even include built in powered sub-woofers.
Floor Standing Speakers
Tonally neutral with excellent clarity, lifelike timbral qualities, and impressive bass performance, the Q Acoustics 5040 floor-standing loudspeakers accurately present music and audio content as it is.
The Legacy Focus XD Loudspeakers are the company’s attempt at state-of-the-art sound for less than state-of-the-art money. Let’s find out if they succeeded.

MartinLogan has recently re-invented their Motion Series speakers. The Motion XT F100 Tower Speaker is not just an update, but a from-the-ground-up redesign that sounds amazing and looks stylish.
For over three decades, Definitive Technology has been building speakers with great success. The two specific aspects of their speakers that are the most recognizable are the bipolar designs and built-in powered subwoofers.

It is not often that I get a request to review an ensemble system from a distributor, but I was given the assignment of reviewing a high-end Italian integrated amplifier (solid state analog) with a high-end British floor standing speaker. Would the results be high-end?
The Klipsch RP-8000F II Floor-Standing speakers have new, larger Tractrix® Horn tweeters and newly updated woofers. I found them to be well-made, dynamic, and detailed sounding with surprising musicality at their modest price point.

The ELAC Concentro S 507 floor-standing loudspeakers wowed me with their incredible bass response and in-room bass extension.

Vaughn Loudspeakers is an Indiana-based speaker company that has been building custom loudspeakers since 1999. James Vaughn Jordan, the company’s owner, and founder is especially proud of his aptly named Line Array Major Speakers. It’s an unusual design, and I’m looking forward to putting a pair through their paces.
The Klipsch Forte IV Loudspeaker’s heritage might make you think that it’s simply a party speaker designed specifically for playing loud. While that may be partially correct, it doesn’t tell the whole story of what these fantastic speakers have to offer.
