Our take on the Peachtree Audio DS5.5

by Kristen Schaub
Peachtree Audio

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.

Peachtree Audio's DS5.5 speakers are perfect for anyone who spends a lot of time at the computer. The warmth and musicality they bring to your MP3s puts all those harsh-sounding, plastic computer speakers to shame. Each DS5.5 has a 5" long-throw woofer that reaches deeper into the bass than you'd expect from a speaker this compact. A silk dome tweeter lays on the musical detail without pushing it in your face. Beautiful real-wood veneer cabinets bring a touch of elegance to your work environment.

To really show off your digital music, pair these speakers with one of Peachtree's acclaimed integrated amps, and enjoy audiophile sound direct from your computer.
