Speakers: Main Speakers: Nearfield Acoustics PipeDreams


"All told, the PipeDreams are the best loudspeakers I've heard. Thanks to their superb dynamic range ... not just talking about a little difference in soundstage depth or width; we're talking an entirely different gestalt ... understand that you won't...

The Pipedreams represent a sonic improvement so profound, it's like the step from black & white to color TV. Even with a $20,000+ price tag on the smallest models, I truly believe they represent a tremendous value. While I cannot afford them, I...

Superb detail, dynamics, and soundstage

These are the best I have ever heard at any price.

I have not purchased these speakers yet, but will in 6-8 months. They are the finest speakers I have ever heard. I listened to the Pipedream 15's (6' tall with two subs), which retail for approx. $29K. These are truly holographic in their...

Resolution,unsurpassed dynamics,musicality(after long break in). Soundstaging and recreation of spatial cues .Ability to tune bass to room

Compared to other "cost no object" speakers, I feel these are overrated. I compared them to the 70k JMlab Utopia Grand and found the Grand to blow them away in terms of spatial resolution and soundstaging. The soundstage of the Pipes seems contrived...

Plays very loudly without any distortion, resolution is incredible, the lowest bass I have ever heard... bass that thumps you in the chest

Images are not as distinct as many speakers, including speakers that cost thousands left, not as fast a elctrostatics. Dark sounding, Soundstage is sort of confused
