Doug said: The Prestige FP50 is not inexpensive, but it will be ideal for a particular type of listener: someone who wants exceptional refinement of build quality and sound in a loudspeaker that will complement a smallish listening room.

Read the SoundStage! Hi-Fi review.

The gist: Almost SOTA sound, but needs a sub.
