Our take on the Acoustic Research PS2062


Why choose bookshelf speakers?

Bookshelf speakers may be small in size, but they can deliver surprisingly big sound. Some ultra-compact models even fit on a desktop. Most are right at home in tight spaces like shelves, so they're usually good choices for your home theater's rear channels. For the best performance, try placing bookshelf speakers on solid speaker stands to help the sound really "open up." If you want full bass impact, add a powered subwoofer and enjoy punchy sound that's as deeply satisfying as that of floor-standing speakers.

Treat yourself to the trademark sound of Acoustic Research, at a surprisingly affordable price! This bookshelf speaker from AR's Performance Series brings music and movie soundtracks to life with accurate sonic detail. It features a 1" silk dome tweeter for clear highs, and a 6-1/2" long-throw woofer for precise mids and powerful bass. Video-shielded cabinets mean you can place these gems next to your TV without causing magnetic picture distortion. This versatile pair works great as your home theater's main speakers, surround speakers, or both!

Recommended center channel speaker: AR's PSC25.

Acoustic Research PS2062

Written By Cindy, Kentucky on Friday, February 04, 2005
I am a huge movie buff, but I am a music freak above all other. I like good sound for my movies but I have to have superb sound for my music.
Over the years I have had the opportunity to own and listen to many different speakers. Many men would disagree with me but I really adore silk tweeters. Their reproduction offers a very accurate, sweet, smooth sound.
I have never found a better sounding speaker than a finely tuned set that offers nice tight accurate bass and crystal clear highs because of their silk tweeters. These AR speakers do it for me.
When I put in my favorite concert DVD in and close my eyes I am suddenly blasted back to the pit. I don't even want to look at the TV. I just want to lay back and absorb that sound.
