AVRev.com's Top 100 Awards are back for 2005 with the absolute best gear money can buy for home theater and beyond. While there are many big ticket products to represent the absolute cutting edge of AV technology - value plays a huge role in our editor's decision as to what products make the list and how they are ranked. Make no mistake - to get on the list at all is one heck of a feat considering how many products are released each year.

Enjoy reading reviews of each component as well as seeing how much of your system is on the Top 100.

And the #1 AV product of 2005 is....

#1. Sonos Digital Music Server

The idea of a music server isn't a new one but the idea of merging the ease of use of an iPod with wireless technology with digital amps and now you are really talking.

The Sonos Music server for the money is THE way to fly for music enthsuiasts who want to have from one to 32 zones of audio without punching holes on the walls. Each additional zone can add sotrage for your collection of music which you can buy directly through the system, upload to the system from your PC or external hard drives. You can even stream Internet Radio.
