Polk Audio I-Sonic

Polk Audio I-Sonic

If you're a fan of analog radio, then Polk Audio's new I-Sonic ($600, available in September) should be on your Christmas list this year. The compact system offers HD Radio technology for static-free reception — AM sounds as good as FM, and FM sounds like a CD. The I-Sonic also Plays DVDs, CDs, Picture CDs, Video CDs and MP3 CDs, and is XM Satellite Radio ready. It has an auxiliary input for your iPod, a dual-alarm clock radio, and 30 radio presets. And since it's Polk, rest assured the compact system will offer rich, room-filling sound and tight bass.

  • Klipsch iFi Speakers

    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.

  • Samsung HT-P50 USB Host Home Theater System

    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.
