There's been a rash of in-wall
speakers coming to market lately, and we're glad to hear installed sonics improving from the whole-home intercom era, but freestanding speakers (in floorstanding, stand-mounted, bookshelf and desktop flavors) are what most of us end up using. The choice of makes and models in the market makes the grocery store's cereal aisle blanch, but our friends at CEPro
have done up a nice slideshow of some of the latest and standout offerings out there. From big to small, high to low, active to passive, ported to sealed and planar to cones, this sampling of speakers shows that there's still lots of creativity being poured into how to convert ones and zeros into waves; grab your wallet and hit that link.
