40. Krell HTS 7.1 (AV preamp)
Sexy-looking, with features and sound to go along with it, the Krell HTS 7.1 allows for a no-compromise audio guy to make the move to home theater without selling out on his audiophile roots.


39. Runco 61-Inch Plasma (HDTV)
At 61 inches and including a badass video processor, this Runco set-up begs the question of why you would want a projector. There might not be a better picture on a plasma anywhere in the world, and at 61 inches, it is a big picture.


38. Morel Nova (speaker)
With a very unique physical design from a company known for their fantastic drivers, the Morel Nova is a speaker that caught the attention of our reviewers.


37. Meridian 598 (CD DVD player)
If it weren’t for the Meridian 800, the 598 would be ranked higher. It does the same digital connection for DVD-Audio into Meridian preamps and can toast all but the best CD players on the market in a head to head comparison. If you only have one source component in a high-end system, the 598 might be it.


36. Sunfire Ultimate Receiver (Receiver)
What more mainstream receivers lack is seven channels of beefy Bob Carver power and the ease of use of the Sunfire Theater Grand III AV preamp all in one chassis.


35. Richard Gray's Power Company 12 (AC power)
RGPC’s AC technology is very simple (and patented) and it works like a champ to provide your video and audio gear with a reserve of rock-solid power and the best surge protection we have seen to date. Some AR reviewers use both an Exact EP15a and multiple RGPCs.


34. Exact Power EP15a (AC power)
Patented sub-cycle waveform correction, precision voltage regulation, and up to 1500 watts on-demand in one cool box. The EP15A delivers lab standard power in the home so your AV gear can perform to its maximum potential.


33. Lexicon MC12 (AV preamp)
At $10,000, the MC12 is an expensive AV preamp by anyone’s measure, but its studio-inspired sound and rock-solid stability wins over fans quickly.


32. Meridian 861 (AV preamp)
Priced close to $20,000, the Meridian 861 is one of the (if not THE) finest AV preamps money can buy. Unique features include digital room correction and a special digital connection for DVD-Audio and DVD-Video soundtracks.


31. NAD T571 (CD-DVD Changer)
Custom installers agree with Augie that this DLP is the king of the hill right now. With DVI inputs, it allows you to hotrod your DVD picture or connect your Faroudja NRS digitally.
