Any interest in tower speakers?
more_vert
I've been watching the Audiophile community for a while, and have purchased a couple pairs of nice headphones, but I rarely see actual speakers come up, and when they do they're almost always small powered desktop or bookshelf speakers.
Is there any interest in some full towers here? Perhaps something along the lines of the SVS Ultras, Q Acoustics Concept 40 or 500s, Elac UF5 or Adante AF61, Infinity R263, B&W 702 S2, Ascend Acoustics Sierra Towers w/RAAL, or some other nice high quality tower speakers?

Yes. JBL Studio 590's, 580's or even 530's. Impressive

Yes, interest in towers (and headphones). Currently playing ALR Entry 4 towers from the 1990's, (British sound German engineering) not very popular but oh boy, they rock. I use Naim Uniti 2 with which I recently tried new speakers but found nothing up to this level. Tried the Focal 948, B&W 603 and Q A Concept 500 , the latter were near to the ALR but not as visceral.

I really like the ELAC UniFi F5 towers that I have. Very linear and clear. But I am selling them because I don’t really have room for them as I have moved further up line with my main speakers. So they are for sale.

I just bought a new AVR (Yamaha A3080) and I agree with this. Even if it wasn't tower speakers, Atmos/Presensce speakers or satellites sell well I think. Same with accessories: swivel mounts, banana/spade plugs, cables, sound deadening material, speaker/sub stands, measuring equipment, etc. Even more receivers would be nice since they go on sale all the time some good deals could be had here. Same with more powered options for 2nd/3rd room setups. As much as I would like to see some nice towers, it's doubtful due to size and weight.

I got a pair of tower speakers, really good for filling the house with decent amount of music! The kids love dancing to them when we're just wanting to play some happy tunes!
I have them hooked up to a cheap Chinese amp and use my phone as the source. Does the job and produces decent sound!

Very interested in speakers, too. If a quality pair of tower speakers at a reasonable discount showed up on Massdrop, I would almost definitely buy. Same goes for an integrated amp.
I know that not everyone is in the states but with the wide availability of quality direct to consumer options I don't see tower speakers being all that successful on here. The few times I've seen the Pioneer Elite Andrew Jones line on here it doesn't seem to do all that well. Now if I could get some Revel F208's, ELAC Adante or other similarly priced pairs with a warranty and a discount count me in.
