90. Sony PlayStation 2
PlayStation 2 shows its long-term relevancy for yet another holiday season with great game titles and lower prices.
89. Morel Octwin 5.2M speakers
One of the most unique speakers you will ever see and hear - and you will definitely be glad you heard it.
88. Microsoft Xbox
Bill Gates’ video game system adds even more technical sophistication to the world of video gaming. Online gaming and a growing list of strong titles makes Xbox hard to resist for the home theater enthusiast.
87. Equi-Tech Model Q AC power conditioner
The AC power product used by the pros in the studio can reduce your noise threshold like no other product. Review coming soon.
86. Lexicon RT10 universal player
There are an increasing number of inexpensive “universal” DVD-Audio/SACD players on the market, but if your system is more high-end, you will enjoy the performance advantages of this Lexicon.
85. MartinLogan Descent subwoofer
MartinLogans are famous loudspeakers, but they have never been known for their ultra-low bass. That is, until now. This sub is based on technology derived from MartinLogan’s $70,000 E2 Statement speakers and fits nicely even in non-ML speaker systems.
84. ASC Tube Traps
Less expensive than RPG treatments, ASC acoustical treatments are a bit more in your face, but one or two pairs can quickly solve evil acoustic problems in your room. Think we’re kidding – try removing them from your room and then do some critical listening.
83. RPG room treatments
There comes a point in all high-end audio systems when your room is more a factor in the success of your sound than your gear. RPG’s room treatment products (absorption, diffusion, etc.) allow you to make the most of the room and gear you have.
82. Meyer Sound EQs
The tool of the serious room tuner, this EQ gives audio gurus like Bob Hodas the chance to polish the little details of your system to a fine glow. Don’t believe the anti-EQ hype. A professional tuning of your room with a good EQ gets you the most from your system in your room.
81. Anthem Pre 2 stereo preamp
For people with expensive taste in high-end audio gear who can’t buck up for the big-dollar gear, this Anthem preamp is a winner.
