The Good : The Emotiva Airmotiv T1 is a large, affordable three-way speaker featuring high-end appointments including a folded ribbon tweeter. The T1's sound quality offers close to the holy trinity of sound quality: full punchy bass, expressive midrange and airy highs. The bass response is deep enough to forgo the need for a separate sub in smaller rooms.
The Bad : Bulky appearance, utilitarian black finish.
The Bottom Line : The Emotiva Airmotiv T1's dynamic sound will appeal to audiophiles on a budget who are hankering for a big-speaker sound for music and home-theater systems.
