Default Re: Need advice on speakers for my floating wood floor

Take a look at Paradigm speakers. They have some great budget audiophile speakers. If you shop smart you can get a system for $1000. Take a look at the Atom as main speakers & they make a center channel, rears & a sub to match.

Floor standing speakers almost always sound better in any environment. But a better question is, what sounds better, a pair of $400 floor standing speakers or a $400 pair of book shelf speakers? Well, usually the bookshelf speakers will sound better. They are smaller and use less materials so now them $$ are put into better quality parts. Big cheap speakers sound boomy & unbalanced, where small, quality speakers have less bass and don't play as loud, but they have a much more balanced & over all quality is better.
