Equipment used in the Worlds Best Home Theater Systems?

The Best Home theater systems all have one thing in common.

There will always be another home theater that is better still.

Quality is credited and seen from the eyes or ears of the beholder. I have been in some truly incredible Home theater systems.
Goldmund mimesis 32 best multichannel picture But for me to imply that this or that is the 'best' is ridiculous.

The term Best implies better than all others. Based on what? My personal ideas of what is 'best' may be very different from your idea of 'best'.

This site is dedicated to high quality Audio and Video. This site may not be the 'best' but I will use the term anyway because I like it.

So don't be offended when you see 'best' labels like 'best speaker wire' all over the place. I like the word, it gets attention.

No human on the planet has the perfect home theater system. Most of us just want to think that - ours is better than everyone Else's.

I have highlighted a few pieces of audio equipment that are used in some of the world's best home theater systems. This is not a be all and end all list by any stretch.

I have personally used or heard every piece of this gear. Most importantly, we are not trying to sell you anything.

A Note about Magazine Reviews:

Magazine reviews should be taken with a grain of salt.

If a poor review is published about a speaker manufacturer product the magazine will not sell too many ads to that manufacturer.

Guess what the publisher is going to tell the reviewer when they get an angry letter from the manufacturer? Do the math! Poor reviews can kill a company. The publishers and reviewers know this.

All products cannot be great or even good. Even if they are -the bar will be raised; then more quality and value will be expected on the very next review. Mediocre products would then be seen as awful and great products as only good.

By the way, one full page color ad in a stereo magazine start at around $7500 USD. That is $7500 USD for one month or issue –not for the entire year.

Multiply by 12 to get your expense for just one magazine. I know this because I called to enquire about them in early 2005. I am sure that those costs are higher now.

Most major high end companies run multiple ads in multiple magazines throughout the world. Some companies have ads every single month of the year.

Who pays for this advertising budget? Think about it! How much of that value gets past on to the purchasing customer? Zero!

Customer Testimonials:

"Peter, I just wanted to drop you a quick note and say how impressed I am with these speakers. They are EXACTLY what I was looking for..very very small with big sound.

My wife loves them as well. They look great, and you hardly notice them at all sitting on the shelf. They integrate perfectly as surrounds. I have them crossed over at 150 as you recommended...simply fantastic. I only have about 15 hours on them so far, so I know they will only get better. You really have something here. Kelly ~ Montana USA

"I found these speakers by accident and after reading all the available info and after several emails back and forth with the company owner I decided I had nothing to lose, so I ordered a set of 5 mini cube speakers.

Peter was very helpful and patient and always responded to my emails within hours.

I have had the speakers set up for a couple of days and they sound great; they are everything described on the web site.

The sound from these small speakers truly is awesome.

I replaced a set of very high quality but also very large speakers and have not been disappointed... and the wife loves not having four large speakers in the living room.

The sound from these speakers really does fill the entire house, I was concerned about the small size of the speakers due to the fact I like to listen to music and movies at volumes most would consider loud.

These speakers are more than capable of playing at volume levels louder than I ever need while also maintaining very high quality sound. ~by; William (Corinth,TX)

"I ordered these speakers in the hope of bringing some life to my entertainment system... I didn’t think it would bring room filling sound to my entire house. These speakers not only fill my den with crystal clear sound, but radiate great sound throughout the house. Thanks for such a great product!" Celia ~Malasia IP#

"these speakers breathed new life back into my music, I had no idea such small surround sound speakers could perform so well." John from US IP#

"how you got so much performance out of these speakers I have no idea -Great product!" Andrew from Denmark IP#

"nice speakers, nice finish, blended in with my room well and the wife is happy too. Great sound presentation! Now I just wish you guys made a subwoofer." Kyle from US IP#

"These surround sound speakers are amazing! After running them in for a couple days, I decided to play some tunes, and they never once sounded distorted or strained...

While I know they should be paired with a good sub-woofer bass system, I think they sound good enough that I can wait until I have the money to buy a really nice sub." Fred US IP#

"Wow, what a great set of speakers. I really understand what you mean by a large sound-stage." Sandy from US IP#

"Recently I came to realize that my HDTV was better than my sound system... So, I decided to piece together a better sound system. Running across your site (and these speakers) was the best thing that has happened to my home theater.

My current system is; an older receiver, a home theater PC with a blue-ray player drive, and one pair of your Mini-Cubes. (for now; I plan to buy 3 more speakers soon)" Kevin US IP#

"Purchasing a new set of surround sound speakers was a must for me. My old system looked awful and sounded even worse. The quality and look of your Mini-Cube speaker were a perfect fit.

Once I reviewed the ratings and tests I knew they would be perfect. I will be sure to look for more information and products from you. I can't believe the performance of these surround sound speakers for the modest price. I would recommend these speakers to anyone!" Mike US IP#

"The overall quality and dynamic capacity of these speakers really took me by surprise. Their imaging is distinct, tonality is crystal clear, and oh yeah... they pump out some serious volume!

I feel like I have stolen speakers that I can't afford. People that spend more are Suckers!!" Micah US #Ohio
