Looking for a robust desktop audio solution that doesn't consume massive amounts of space? Logitech's Z Cinéma Advanced Surround is one of the most feature rich sound systems currently available for desktops. Although it has only two speakers, it utilizes SRS TruSurround HD to believably simulate a much larger surround environment. What's more, those speakers own up with a tri-amplification design and digital crossover EQ. Conveniently, no sound card is required, as the system connects via USB and all components are built-in. It also includes a fully featured remote control that's optimized for media center, so if you're looking for an audio solution for your HTPC and need a remote, you, as they say, could kill two birds with one stone — one $300 stone.
If you happen to have a Pagani parked in your driveway, you might have the dough it will take to pick up this Pagani Hi-Fi Stereo System ($TBD). Made from aluminum and carbon fiber, the system's main control unit is designed after the radios found in Pagani cars, and the four-pipe bass port recalls the Zonda's exhaust system. Other features include two turntables (one for 33s and one for 45s), twin 350 watt tower speakers, a CD player, and a dedicated amplifier. [via]
