Audiophiles rejoice — this is the best sounding dedicated iPod speaker system in the world. Unfortunately, it's also the most expensive. The Klipsch iFi ($400) features an iPod docking station, two Klipsch Reference Series RSX-3 satellites, and an 8-inch subwoofer with a built-in amplifier that offers 200 watts of peak system power. The iFi also comes with a small radio frequency remote that can send signals through walls. It's compatible with all iPods with bottom dock connectors, but older iPods and other portable audio players can be played through their mini jack.
This home theater system from Samsung offers everything you could ask for in a reasonably priced package — 5.1 surround sound, a 5-disc changer, HDMI output, an 8-inch Subwoofer and overall stunning looks. But Samsung's HT-P50 ($450) offers one added feature that puts it at the top of our list — USB direct plug & play. Instead of burning a CD or DVD of your downloaded music, movies and photos, all you have to do is plug in a portable USB device (such as an MP3 player, digital camera or flash drive) and start enjoying your media with real sound through the HT-P50. The system offers 1000 watts of power and supports a wide range of playback options — DivX, DVD-Audio/Video, MP3, WMA, JPEG, DVD+R/RW, DVD-R/RW and CD-R/RW.
Don't let the playful color fool you. The Pro-Ject Debut III Turntable offers great features while looking like a work of art at the same time. It's built with an Ortofon OM-5E moving magnet phono cartridge for excellent sound, a chrome-plated stainless steel axle in a brass bearing housing, aluminum tone arm, and a silicone-damped arm lift. The Debut III is also available in black, silver and white for a less flashy look.
