While acoustician Bob Hodas has his own room-tuning jihad on coffee tables for sonic purposes, our friends at The Absolute Sound have taken the time to make a coffee table book about the best audiophile speakers of all time. The $129 coffee table book is LP-shaped and takes a leisurely look into the best speaker designs of all time. Wilson, MartinLogan, Bowers & Wilkins, Infinity - you name 'em, they've got 'em. Interviews, rare photos, professional copy and unique insights only begin to list the contents of this book.

I for one am personally pre-ordering this 320-page book, as it is must-read material for a good fall audio session. Consider it the ultimate in liner notes. The first 2500 copies are numbered as first-printing copies.
The Absolute Sound suggests that they might do additional volumes on electronics and other products. Count me in there, too, as this is the type of stuff that you want on display in your music room.
