One of the reasons these speakers are so brilliant, is that they are physically large compared to a bookshelf design - please check dimensions and make sure you are definitely happy with a speaker this size before purchasing.
These floorstanders are supplied with adjustable spikes, which hold the speaker absolutely rigid, giving the best sound. The spikes actually cause LESS damage to carpets than castors or rubber feet, because a spike passes through the carpet pile and leaves no mark. Spikes should still be used on wooden floors - if you are worried about floor damage, simply use spike protector discs (which can be purchased cheaply from Amazon) or even a five pence coin, under each spike.

Neat Momentum SX5i speakers (very slight cosmetic seconds)
Fabulous audiophile floorstanders, with iso-baric bass!

Take Neat's hugely popular Momentum 4i speaker, give it a brand new anodised aluminium dome tweeter (developed exclusively for Neat) then rework its crossover - and you've got the amazing new Momentum SX5i ! As a result, the SX5i looks identical to the outgoing 4i, but now boasts an even clearer midrange presentation, with more detail and better spatial positioning. One thing that hasn't changed (arguably because it couldn't be bettered!) is the SX5i's glorious bass performance, which is identical to the legendary output of the 4i, thanks to both speakers sharing exactly the same iso-baric drivers - see below for more details.

In terms of stunning bass reproduction, one of the most famed loudspeakers of all time was the Linn Isobarik of the 1980's. It arguably wasn't particularly accurate in the mid range, but boy could it handle low frequencies! That speaker has long since been discontinued, but the memory of its taut, rhythmic, start-stop bass lives on with audiophiles around the world. The Linn Isobarik got its name from a specific type of loading used on its bass driver - termed iso-baric loading. The principle is explained in detail if you click here, but the most important thing to take on board is that any speaker utilising this type of design seems to produce the sort of  fast, tuneful bass that makes all competitors sound hopelessly uncontrolled and boomy in comparison.

Neat's outstanding Momentum SX5i is one of the best examples of the iso-baric principle in a modern design, utilising two hidden 6.5 inch bass drivers firing out of the bottom of its cabinet. The result is a wonderfully free flowing, tight bass, which is complimented by an incredibly detailed and open mid-range, thanks to Neat's custom made forward firing 'Ultimatum' bass/midrange driver and SXT-A1 inverted anodised aluminium dome tweeter. The dispersion of frequencies between all four drivers is handled by ultra high quality hand made, hard wired cross-overs, featuring close-tolerance, high grade capacitors and chokes, custom made for Neat. The cabinets are heavy grade too, weighing in at 25kg apiece and featuring a range of stunning real wood veneers plus a clever magnetic grille assembly. The SX5i now also has an optional solid slate plinth available (at extra cost) which improves stability as well as sonic performance. Straight from the box, these speakers sparkle, seducing the listener with any type of music. They are easy to drive and work amazingly well in virtually any room configuration. They are quite simply sensational!
