The term bookshelf is really a reference to the loudspeaker’s physical size, which offers some convenient placement options over a floorstanding speaker, not to mention a less obtrusive presence. But don’t let the term bookshelf create the wrong impression. Discerning listeners will find our bookshelf models are more than capable of creating well-defined soundstages, with superb imaging and clarity. The budget-minded or the space-constrained can turn to our bookshelves and not worry that they’re compromising on performance. Polk bookshelf loudspeakers offer a serious performance option.
