Klipsch LightSpeaker

Klipsch LightSpeaker

If you have a thirst for audio in an area of your home where your partner might not be so thrilled having visible speakers, investigate the Klipsch LightSpeaker ($600). Designed to go into 5- and 6-inch recessed lighting fixtures, the LightSpeaker also offers 20 watts of power per full-range speaker, an integrated LED bulb good for 40,000 hours of use, and a wireless remote and transmitter for controlling the system. Perhaps the best part, though, is the ultra-simple 10-step installation process that you can do yourself.

  • McIntosh MXA60 Integrated Audio System

    The McIntosh 60th Anniversary MXA60 Integrated Audio System ($7,500), the company's first-ever standalone setup, gives you audiophile-quality sound in a beautifully compact design. And while its price tag might seem high, you've got to recognize that this thing was designed and built by the same team responsible for the $250,000 McIntosh Reference System. The tabletop system features a high-performance 75-watt-per-channel amplifier, a CD/SACD/MP3 player, vacuum tube preamplifier, an AM/FM/RBDS Tuner, and 2-way bass reflex custom loudspeakers. All that is housed in metal casing with anodized aluminum accents and backlit glass faceplates with Peak Reading Wattmeters.

  • Sony Altus

    Wiring your entire home for sound can be a huge pain — especially if you're working on a historic or otherwise pre-existing residence — which is why we're intrigued by the Sony Altus ($50-$700) system. Utilizing 2.4GHz wireless technology, the Altus system can push audio from the source of your choice, be it a stereo, TV, or iPod, to a maximum of eight separate speakers around your house, letting you "Party in the USA" no matter where you are. If that sounds a bit rich for your blood, there's always the Rocketfish system, which also uses a 2.4GHz wireless audio standard but runs from $60-$200. [Thanks, Todd]
