PARADIGM MONITOR 11: $1,598
This tower costs less than $1,600. The Paradigm Monitor delivers gorgeous bass (-3dB point at 42 Hz). The Monitor is priced for excellent value and has a very satisfying performance with movies and music.

The Definitive Technology, based on a 2011 update, demonstrates a unique proposition among today´s tower offerings. This tower is a bipolar speaker and radiates sound from the front and back baffles of the speaker. The Definitive Technology is sensitive to room placement. You should place it out a bit from the back and you will be rewarded with an amazing deep, 3D sound that only a few speakers can match.
SVS ULTRA TOWER, $2,000
The SVS is popular for its excellent subwoofers. The dynamics of the tower are very strong with a powerful deep bass output. The size is perfect and the build quality is stunning. The tower is nearly 4 feet tall and 16 inches deep.

The PSB is characterized by a deliciously natural midrange and detailed high end. If you are into neutral musicality, you cannot go wrong with this tower.
