Being asked to name which consumer product is “Best of” is a daunting responsibility, as decisions must balance subjective values such as quality and aesthetics against absolutes like price and performance specs. In the same fashion that a Bugatti Chiron and Rolls-Royce Phantom may bow to a Porsche 911 and Mercedes-Benz S-Class when practical considerations are taken into account, Wilson Audio’s $850,000 Master Chronosonic loudspeaker might give way to one of their more earthbound models, or another brand altogether. And so, while keeping price tags well under six figures, we editors have consolidated a shortlist of favorites within a number of audio product categories. These are personal favorites and in no way exclude the many other worthy products that populate the consumer electronics marketplace. But we promise each of our picks is truly great, often uncommon, and guaranteed not to embarrass themselves—or their owners—in the context of cost-no-object systems. And after all, we like the challenge of finding products that deliver genuine value in addition to stellar performance.
