The Sony XDR-F1HD tuner. This analog/HD tuner, available online for as little as $80, boasts superb sensitivity and selectivity and a tremendous analog section. Fantastic out of the box—with inexpensive mods it rivals the sound of the best of the classic-era tuners.

The Manger MSMc1 from the professional line. Amazing speakers.

Linn Radikal. Hard to believe that a new power supply could add so much to the LP12.

Wadia 170 iTransport iPod dock. One of best ways to listen to music. Gives you CD-quality sound from your iPod.

Lost my job this year, so I kept myself away from looking at audiophile products.

It's not a product, per se, yet, but it will be soon—optical scanning of vintage records being conducted at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Once the process is fully developed, implemented, and made available to the audiophiles of this world, your vinyl collection can be preserved forever.

Ayre KX-R. Now, if I could just afford one!

Linn Majik DS. Digital music done right. Sounds good and works like a charm!

Philips SHP 8900 headphones. Bargain-priced and really good sound, an easy reccomendation to all non-audiophile friends.

Picked up a pair of Hsu Reaserch HB-1s. Fantastic little speakers that have rekindled my passion for vinyl. Got them on Hsu's website for $109 each, $40 less than normal. They basically paid the tax and the shipping. I know that some audiophiles are laughing their asses off at $300/pair speakers, but these are the best-rated "bang-for-the-buck" that I found out there. They are as good as advertised and more.

iPod Shuffle: Lossless audio, small, and portable and enough storage for a work-day's worth of music!

VPI Classic Turntable, I hope—'cuz I bought one!

B&W CM5—excellent monitor speaker.

Oppo's Blu-ray player. Comparing its performance to my Lexicon MC12 makes me cry. On CDs and DVDs, letting the Oppo do the D/A converstion beats the Lex hands down.

Conrad Johnson Classic SE, I love it!

Gotta be the Naim HDX. Looks (and sounds) like the future to me.

Wadia 170 iTransport. Made the iPod a high-quality music source.

MFW-15. It fills my 5496 cubic foot room quite nicely by itself, but paired with my DIY 15" sub, I get a foundation-rattling experience that only California could beat

Peachtree Audio Nova. Lovin' it daily!
