Compact WZ-5 SEPrice: $4500 per pair


Colin said: The Compact WZ-5 SE Collector’s Edition isn’t a totally bad speaker, but it doesn’t perform at anywhere near the level of such peers as the Definitive Technology Mythos ST, PSB Synchrony One ($4500/pair), or even the less-expensive Paradigm Studio 100 ($3599/pair).

Read the SoundStage! Hi-Fi review.

The gist: Just not very good.
