Reader nominations for the best headphones, speakers, and receivers

Everybody has their favorites; it's time to speak up and nominate your favorite audio products.

Audiophiliac readers have strong opinions about the gear I write about every day; now it's your turn to spread the word about your favorite audio products. Nominate your picks for best speakers, in as many categories as you want: iPod speakers, sound bars, desktop, bookshelf, tower, high-end, subwoofers, home theater, etc.

I'm also seeking nominations for headphones of all types: universal-fit in-ears, custom-molded in-ears, DJ, Bluetooth, full-size on- and over-the-ear headphones, studio headphones, noise-canceling headphones. How about receivers? Stereo and home theater receivers, or integrated amplifiers, as well as turntables, CD players, iPods, and other types of music players; they're all open for nominations.

I've have separate categories for current and vintage gear. We'll break out the nominations into separate prices ranges of under $100, under $1,000, and over $1,000.

Place all nominations in the Comments section, and I'll tally and run them in a poll to let the readers vote on the best of the best in a month or so.
