Holiday Gift Guide: Luxury A/V

Sometimes state-of-the-art A/V comes at a high price, but is worth the investment.

OK, we’ll admit it. We walk into some demo rooms and our jaw drops … not only because of the A/V performance, but because of the price of some of those loudspeakers, A/V processors, projectors and other pieces that make the experience look and sound so impressive.

High-performance technology is not something everyone can afford. But certainly lots of people can, and will, spend to have great home audio and video experiences.

We wanted to give you a taste of some higher-priced gift ideas – and relatively speaking we didn’t even go all that crazy here. We stayed away from the six-figure area, which we could have easily broached with some sweet items out there like the four-component dCS Vivaldi digital audio stack (about $100K), Wilson Audio Alexandria XLF speakers (about $200K), Meridian 810 Reference Video System (about $225K) and others.

But we wanted to offer up some suggestions in the four- and five-figure range that for most of us would perhaps be deemed “cost-no-object” as well as take into account some of the stylish design, and of course performance, these goodies serve up. To paraphrase Ferris Bueller, if you have the means, we highly recommend picking up one of these gifts — they’re so choice.
