Not everyone has the luxury of a bigger living space to place the floor-standing speakers. Thankfully, there’s a better alternative in the form of bookshelf speakers, ideal for medium and smaller spaces. As the name suggests, these types of speakers are compact enough to be placed on a bookshelf or your desk. You can also invest in the speaker stands to put on top of them. Below are the 8 recommended bookshelf speakers from brands like Bowers & Wilkins, Klipsch and Q Acoustics in alphabetical order.

1) B&W 607 S3

Small but mighty, the Bowers & Wilkins (B&W) 607 S3 speaker boasts an elegant design that’s easy on the eye. They offer four colour options: Black, White, Red Cherry and Oak finishes. The latter is particularly a standout — classy oak on both sides with a minimalist white front panel. The B&W 607 S3 offers detailed sound quality, thanks to the Titanium Dome tweeter no matter if you are listening to jazz music or vocal-heavy songs.
