    What are some of the best brands out there?

    Hey all, I was wondering about home audio, and what some of the arguably best brands out there today are, and I do not mean best value, I mean best no matter the price.

    I'm actually asking about absolutely top of the line, if you know of any.

    Re: What are some of the best brands out there?

    From a non-marketing point of view, no wine & cheese BS, any competent product is
    considered top of the line when it comes to home audio

    But if you want your wine & cheese audio experience for bragging rights then we can
    probably make a huge list, but you can just google to find the esoteric products.

    Re: What are some of the best brands out there?

    From what I hear Harman Kardon makes pretty good stuff. I've heard polk stuff and I liked it alot. There is one company I can't remember the name. It was a german company. By far better sounding than anything I've ever heard. It was kind of a weird name. And was about 3k per speaker.
