Klipsch Quintet

The latest iteration of Klipsch’s classic compact speaker system is still designed to disappear into a room, with four satellites that stand just 7.5 inches tall, and a center channel that’s 11.5 inches long. This means left and right channels that fit alongside the TV, a center speaker that goes over or under the display, and rear channels that can tuck into bookcases or perch, relatively unseen, in the corners of the room. The Quintet isn’t for bass fiends (it lacks a subwoofer), but the speakers it does have are pint-size powerhouses. [$550; klipsch.com]
