Floorstanders tend to deliver greater scale, authority and more bass than bookshelf speakers thanks to their large cabinets but you still need to choose wisely and make sure you pick the best floorstanding speakers for your budget and room size.

We've got great options if you're looking for your first pair. Every pair of floorstanding speakers recommended below has been thoroughly tested by What Hi-Fi?'s expert reviewers in our dedicated listening rooms, so you can trust our buying advice.

Perhaps you're building a hi-fi system from scratch, or sizing up from a bookshelf pair to a bigger model. Or, if you simply want to splash the cash on serious high-end speakers, we're here to help.
