Bottom Line:   
I've been an audiofile for many years owning many bookshelf and tower speakers, but by far i haven't heard tower speakers that faired so well according to price and sound. I am inquiring about the KLH T-1B Tower Speakers. These speakers are remarkably accurate, detailed just like its' brother speaker the KLH M365T. It is very competitive bringing down speakers ranging from $200 to $1,500. My friend sold his bose speakers just to upgrade to KLH speakers. There's other sites that rate these speakers "Five Stars *****", and so do I!

Bottom Line:   
Typically available for as little as $50 each (that is what I paid), I don't think it is possible to find a speaker that will touch the KLH M365T at anywhere near the cost. The sound/cost ratio is truly astounding. These loudspeakers are an excellent buy in all respects, and I recommend them with only a few reservations.

At first blush, you might find the M365T's sound a little thin. But provide source material with a significant amount of bass energy in the lower octaves, and prepare yourself to be impressed. Saint Saens' "Organ Symphony", for example, is quite impressive. An advertised low frequency range dwn to 30Hz sounds like wishful thinking for a $50 speaker sporting a 6.5 inch woofer. But in my listening room (a fairly large and difficult one), the 35Hz response figure is closer to fact than fantasy.

If you really want to impress people and want to shake down the windows, by all means, buy a subwoofer and have at it. But I wouldn't ... the M365T is well balanced, and the lack of tubbiness in the upper bass octaves make these speakers a joy for extended listening sessions. And when there really *is* a lot of low frequency energy, you'll certainly hear it and feel it.

Like the low frequency response, the the high frequency response is, at first, underwhelming. But provide source materal with significant upper harmonics, and close your eyes. What you'll hear is higher frequency material when you *should* hear it, and none when you shouldn't. Instruments sound lifelike ... no more, and no less.

The imaging is an even bigger surprise than the bass response. Soundstaging is steady and accurate, doubtlessly a product of the midrange and lower treble's smooth response and lack of coloration. Play your favorite vocal source material, close your eyes, and you will hear the broad frequency range of the subject coming from one place, and staying there.

The construction quality is quite good as well. The cabinets are thick, structurally sound, well damped, and well finished in a black veneer. Knock around on the cabinet, and you won't hear a lot of hollow resonances. Input is supplied via 5-way gold-plated binding posts.

On the downside, the M365T is not terribly efficient, nor does it handle window-shattering volumes well. The woofer and midrange driver surrounds appear to be made of urethane foam, so expect those to deteriorate within 20 years or so.

But enough quibbling.

If you've got $500 or so to spend on a pair of speakers, by all means, look elsewhere. But if you have only $200 to spend, you should definitely include these speakers in your listening plans. And finally, if all you have is $100, the parade of quality full range floorstanding speakers begins and ends right here. These speakers offer thoroughly enjoyable high fidelity sound, look good, and are made well ... all for as little as $50 each ... and you can't beat that.
