Our take on the Peachtree Audio D5 by Crutchfield's Kristen Schaub
Audiophile performance for your desktop or home theater sound system
Now everyone can be happy: the decorator, the home theater enthusiast, the casual listener, and most of all, the audiophile who never has to trade good looks for sound again. That's because Peachtree Audio's D5 bookshelf speakers dish out highly accurate and surprisingly big sound from gorgeous cabinets that take up very little space. These speakers are ideal for music setups, from a desktop system in your office to a stereo system at home. They're more than dynamic enough for your home theater, too. And as with all Peachtree products, their fit, finish, and fidelity go way beyond what you would expect at this price point.
Quality design inside and out
Each D5 has a 5-1/4" long-throw woofer and vented voice coil, so bass sounds deep, natural, and strong. A silk dome tweeter lays on the musical detail without pushing it in your face. The result is terrific fidelity at an unbelievable value. Plus, the D5s are constructed from thick MDF, so when you lift one you can feel and see the high level of craftsmanship. The beautiful real-wood veneer cabinets are sanded, smoothed, and hand-polished to bring a touch of elegance to your home or 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.
Really impressed with the sound clarity and power. Could not be more pleased.

Why did you buy this?
great match to my nova65 se [ paul Jun 26, 2016 ]
2 questions already asked
I can't say with certainty, but most Peachtree products are designed in the US and built in China. I wouldn't let that stop you from purchasing these speakers. You would have to spend $1000 more to get a pair of speakers of this size to sound better. [ Arthur Dec 17, 2016 ]
The plate on the back says "designed in the United States, made in China." [ steve Dec 16, 2016 ]
Good question. I haven't experimented too much with placement, but mine are on either side of a fireplace, with the backs about a foot from the wall and they sound great. I had them set up at my girlfriend's house for a while and they were a bit closer than that and I didn't notice any diminution of sound quality. [ steve Oct 03, 2015 ]
Mine are on 4' stands and about three feet from the wall, toed in. Room is 25x45. Hsu sub added much more depth to the soundstage. Really wonderful speakers once the sub filled up the low end. I suppose I could get them a bit closer to the wall, just have yet to spend the time getting OCD about it. [ WILLIAM Oct 03, 2015 ]
They're ported in the back so I give them about a foot. Great sounding speakers BTW but they need a sub. [ Diversified Mer Oct 03, 2015 ]
I returned the speakers one wouldn't work. Got the Martin Logan's instead great choice. Different placement not as critical love the ML [ Michael Oct 03, 2015 ]
