The Audiophiliac auditions an affordable tower speaker from a legendary British company.
Can't fit tower speakers in your abode? The Wharfedale Jade 3 monitor speaker will blow your socks off!
There are lots of decent affordable speakers on the market, but few great ones. The Wharfedale Diamond ($350 per pair) is definitely in the latter group.
We pick the best budget-priced hi-fi and home theater speakers, and even the cheapest one is a bona fide audiophile contender!
Today's hi-fi buyers rarely get to compare one speaker with another to see which sounds the best. That happens every day at In Living Stereo in NYC!
Ask yourself: how big a system do you need, how much do you want to spend, and what are your priorities?
You can pick up a great-sounding vintage hi-fi at a yard sale or on eBay, and put together an awesome-sounding system for a few hundred bucks.
Deos' in-ear headphones look fairly average, but sound pretty nice.
Audiophile tube amplifiers can sell for as much as a nice car, but the Jolida JD301RC goes for less than an iPad 2.
Most cheap speakers sound like cheap speakers. Not this time: the Dayton B652 goes for $25 a pair and sounds surprisingly good.
