A high-grade DAC delivers up to 24-bit/192 kHz of hi-res, studio-quality music, including support for FLAC, MQA, and many other popular formats.
We love the classic British sound the CXA61 is all about. If you have a music lover who could use a really good integrated amplifier with Bluetooth aptX HD onboard too, you will have them tapping their toes to the music when you give them this. The CXA61 has a very neutral, effortless sound that will pull your music lover deeper into the song.
If you know a music lover who has a large collection of CDs & music files stored on a hard drive, look no further. The Marantz CD6007 has a high-performance AK4490 DAC chip that will support all digital music formats up to 192-kHz/24-bit with two selectable digital filters & a very accurate system clock. So, your music lover will always have the most pristine sound quality for all of the CDs & digital media files in their collection.
If you have a music lover who wants to hear all the details hiding in their music with stunning sound quality & stream it from any source, Cambridge Audio's CXN v2 Network Player is the perfect gift. With Spotify Connect, Apple AirPlay 2, TIDAL & Chromecast built-in there's no shortage of ways to stream music. Plus, the CXN is Roon Tested, so your music lover can connect a NAS & enjoy UPnP audio too. Throw in the digital optical & coaxial inputs, asynchronous USB, aptX Bluetooth & internet radio, and this will bring all of their music into one convenient & extremely easy-to-use device.
This little desktop DAC/amp is powerful! The Peachtree nova300 will handle 300 watts per channel & it includes a built-in high-performance DAC that will playback hi-res music all the way up to 32-Bit/384kHz PCM & 5.2MHz DSD (double-DSD). Connected to a pair of good speakers, this integrated amp delivers a musical sound signature with fantastic dynamic range, jitter elimination, plus low noise characteristics that will satisfy the most demanding listeners. If your music lover needs the power, it's hard not to recommend the Peachtree Nova300 to everyone based on features & price alone.
The Aurora 700 3-way bass reflex speaker with its double bass configuration will present an impressive soundstage despite its slender dimensions. The coolest thing about this speaker is how the high-performance components inside its modern-looking cabinet are combined with a computer-optimized multi-wave front panel that ensures a wide dispersion pattern for a fantastic soundstage. We like how the wood decor creates a look that is very modern, and yet timeless & elegant at the same time.
The L82 Classic is a compact 8-inch 2-way bookshelf loudspeaker with the iconic retro-inspired style of its bigger brother — the L100 Classic. The design of the L82 Classic features a real walnut satinwood veneer cabinet & a striking Quadrex foam grille that is available in black, orange, or blue. Beneath the classic look of the L82's exterior lies modern acoustic components that deliver fantastic sound that is sure to get your music lover's toes tapping.
These bookshelf speakers are really fun to listen to! Klipsch used a 1-inch titanium tweeter mated to Klipsch's proprietary hybrid Tractrix horn, which presents fantastic acoustics. Even though they are relatively small, they will fill a room with a big sound that reaches down quite low for their size. In fact, a pair of RP-600M's will reproduce deep bass that no ordinary bookshelf speaker can, which is only one of the reasons we love them so much.
The retro beautiful Fives will satisfy even the most demanding music lover. Their sound is big and full, yet they remain clear even at low volumes. We love the retro look of the big knobs and the grills that pay homage to Klipsch speakers from decades ago. But they have all the latest tech for any system. Connect them to a turntable, a TV, a computer, or use Bluetooth and fill the room with Klipsch sound.
Your favorite music lover probably spends some time at their home office working in front of their computer. Adding music to the workspace improves creativity and makes time pass much faster. Peachtree makes some of our favorite computer speakers and the M25 is able to fill even a large office with big sound. Connecting them up is very simple with either USB or Bluetooth and they even have a phono input for a turntable, which is unheard of at this price point and quality. We love the sound of these great speakers which come in gloss black and bamboo.
If you have a music lover who craves deep bass, strongly consider Devialet's wireless Phantom II 98dB. Phantoms look as cool as they sound, & they will get people's attention. The dual high excursion woofers are as exhilarating to watch as they are to hear. For those wanting a little extra spatial coverage in a medium-sized room, 2 Phantoms in a stereo pair is a fantastic way to enhance movie watching — especially two-channel music!
