What AV Goodies the HTR Writers Have On Their Wish Lists

The Audreal P-20 Solid-State Class A Amplifier

"I would put on my holiday wish list the Audreal P-20 solid-state Class A amplifier, which retails for $1,800. It is beautifully built and looks sexy with its pair of blue lighted watts/dB meters on the front. Sonically, the P-20 competes with amps that cost up to $5,000. Finally, it has six dB of headroom and has easily driven any speaker I have in the house with great finesse."

Steven Stone picks:
Bryaston-225.jpgThe Bryston BHA-1 Headphone Amplifier

"Of all the headphone amplifiers I've heard and seen, the Bryston BHA-1 is the most flexible, with its two gain settings and ability to accept single-ended and balanced [both mini and standard] headphone connections. It can also serve as an analog preamp. Along with superb flexibility, the BHA-1 also sounds excellent with a wide variety of headphones, from high-sensitivity in-ears to the Audeze LCD-2s and 600-ohm Beyer-dynamic DT-990s."

Panny-ZT-225.jpgAlexander Lezcano picks:
The Panasonic TC-P65ZT60 Plasma HDTV

"I would most like to receive Panasonic's TC-P65ZT60, because the company will no longer be making plasmas come year's end. I love plasma picture quality, and the ZT60 is the best of the best."

Brian Kahn picks:
The Marantz NA-11S1 Network Audio Player and DAC

Marantz-Media-225.jpg

"Marantz's $3,499 NA-11S1 is like the Swiss army knife of digital products. It hits a great sweet spot in its list of features, from its DAC capabilities to its network audio streaming to its built-in AirPlay to its access to Pandora, Spotify, Sirius/XM, and Internet radio. It's not a perfect product - I wish it offered AIFF support and the ability to stream DSD files over the network - but it's fully featured and boasts very good sound quality. It would make a great addition to my AV setup, and my full review is coming soon."
