These speakers from Audyssey purport to be “inspired by the sights and sounds of New York’s Lower East Side neighborhood,” though I don’t see a lot of the LES in them myself. Not enough sandwiches, for one thing.
But they’re more than a New York shout-out: they claim these speakers are powerful, well-balanced, and more than sufficient for your music and movies. No subwoofer required. Only one way to find out! $200 for you, my friend, shipping later this year.
