    I am contemplating the purchase of a pair of tower speakers to accompany my new home-build media centre.
    A pair of Skytronics caught my eye. The spec seemed OK but no indication of THD or frequency drop-off.
    When I tried to find a review or user comment, I couldn't find a thing.

    If someone could suggest where I might find some, I would be grateful.

    TIA

    Yeah, skytronics looks like a European brand, their home audio line looks like a knock off of B&W speakers:

    Of course, there is nothing in the way of specs for these speakers. They have speakers that suspiciously resemble Paradigm S8s as well. From a couple google searches, it looks like their bread and butter is pro-audio stuff. Here is a picture of a hilariously garish DJ speaker of theirs:

    Here is a video of those speakers in action; you know a speaker is awesome when the drivers have blue LED backlighting:

    Anyway, I definitely would steer clear of their home audio stuff, its basically white van special speakers.

    I also get the impression that these are white van specials. Wouldn't recommend.
