How do I choose a good speaker?
When looking over a speaker, give it a good knock with your knuckles. It should feel solid and the sound you hear should be solid too, not empty. If you’ve ever searched for a stud in a wall, you already know what to listen for.
How high should HiFi speakers be?
Generally, the ideal height to experience the best sound will be to position your speaker’s tweeter at approximately the same height as your ears – when you are in your normal listening position. For most people, this will be when they are sitting in their favourite armchair.

Should HiFi speakers be angled in?

Should speakers be in front or behind you?
