30. Revel Sub 30 subwoofer with room correction
With dramatically improved styling and clearly audible sonic improvements over the B15, the Sub 30 makes a strong case for being the absolute best AV subwoofer in the world.
29. Request ARQ-Fusion 250 music server
Like an iPod on steroids in your equipment rack, the ReQuest Fusion 250 allows you access to your music in ways that are not possible with a simple CD player.
28. Runco 61-Inch plasma
Superior contrast stats, vivid colors and a powerful video processor make Runco’s case for why it is king of the hill in the big-dollar plasma market.
27. MartinLogan Prodigy speakers
The number two most popular speakers among AR reviewers, the MartinLogan Prodigy can rock harder than past ML speakers, allowing for them to keep up with the dynamic impact in crash-and-burn Hollywood blockbusters, as well as the most delicate string quartets.
26. Classe CA-M400 mono power amps
The winner of the coolest-looking new AV product of the year is the completely redesigned Classe line. These mono block amps are feature-laden and ready to successfully compete with Levinson, Krell and Linn at the absolute highest level.
25. LG 52 Inch Widescreen DLP Rear Projection HDTV Monitor
HDTV that is big, bright and thinner than Paris Hilton yet affordable is the reality with this rear projection DLP set.
24. Linn UNIDISC SC player
In the ultimate source category, the Linn Unidisc has to be considered on the very short list of players that do it all and is engineered to tolerances that are what you would expect from a Rolls Royce aircraft engine.
23. Gallo Due speakers
These little grapefruit-like loudspeakers are perfect to fit into places where speakers just won’t go. Unlike other small, overly marketed speakers that you see late at night on infomercials, Gallos sound smooth and dynamic, while being easy on the pocketbook. They do need a sub for full-range performance.
22. Revel Performa F32 speakers
Ask audiophiles if they had to sell their $20,000 speakers and get a much cheaper pair and they may tell you that they would order Revel F32s.
21. Axiom Audio Epic Grand speakers
Another company ready to bend over backward to sell you a pair of value-oriented, high-performance speakers is Axiom Audio. For those who love the sound of the best Canadian speakers but want big-sounding speakers on a small budget – these demand a click to check out.
