Best bookshelf speakers 2021: budget to premium

Best bookshelf speakers Buying Guide: The best bookshelf speakers you can buy in 2021.

Big speakers might give you the meatiest sound, but not everyone has the space, budget or inclination for a set of floorstanders. Thankfully, a small set of speakers can give you a pretty amazing listening experience.

They’re known as bookshelf (or sometimes standmount) speakers. And as the name suggests, they’re small enough to fit on a bookshelf, on stands, on a desk or a table.

But a bookshelf isn’t necessarily where you should put them. Some speakers demand a bit more space in order to perform at their best, so make sure you check the manufacturer’s recommendations before buying – all of these speakers will benefit from a dedicated pair of speaker stands.
