If you need a reminder that humans are awesome, listen to some music. And I don't mean warbling out of your phone's or tablet's tiny speaker -- I mean listen to some music. Out of a big honkin' speaker. The way nature intended.

Let's call it the Awesome Audio Contest! It's your chance to win one of the following:

Good stuff, no? Good stuff, yes! The Fluance speakers earned top marks from CNET's David Carnoy, and the briefcase turntable is just flat-out cool.
