Stereophile magazine has just published its "2010 Buyer's Guide," a tell-all "book" for audiophiles on the prowl for new gear.

Sure, you can get a lot of this information on the Internet, but it's nice to have it all neatly arranged between two covers of a magazine. Inside you'll find listings for 4,000 audio products. So if you're in the market for a hi-fi,the "2010 Buyer's Guide" will save you a lot of time.

You'll find listings of turntables, phono cartridges; CD, SACD and DVD-Audio players; preamplifiers, power and integrated amps; speakers and subwoofers; and headphones.

And don't get the wrong idea, the "2010 Buyer's Guide" may be published by Stereophile magazine, but the components aren't limited to high-priced gear. I found lots of affordable components in there.

Looking for hi-fi that's less than $1,000? How about an Onkyo DX-C390 CD player ($219), Denon DRA-297 stereo receiver ($299), and a pair of Monitor Audio Bronze BR2 speakers ($450 a pair). They're all in there, and each one is accompanied by a set of useful specifications.

High-end goodies are well represented too. Read all about the Wilson Audio Alexandria X-2 MkII speakers that weigh 1,210 pounds per pair ($158,000) and the stunning SME Model 30 turntable that runs $50,000!
