My name is John Zimmer. I'm the owner of Sound Representation, which specializes in the sale of high-end audio equipment. I really learned everything that I know about high-end audio from working at this store that we're sitting in right now, Stereo Exchange. I'm going to teach you what to look for when you want to shop for a stereo. There's no one best pair of speakers that you can buy. A lot of audiophiles have been debating this since the start of hi-fi. One really cool speaker on the market today is called The Music. It's made by a company called Vienna Acoustics. They retail for about $27,500 a pair. The mid-range driver on this speaker actually has a tweeter mounted right in the middle of it. The higher frequencies and the mid frequencies come from the same point in space. Another cool thing about The Music is that it has what's called a super tweeter built into it. This speaker is a truly full range speaker that goes well beyond what our ears can pick up. And then it gives you a really wide open soundstage, and just an incredible sound quality. When you listen to a great speaker system, you shouldn't really be able to tell the difference between live sound and reproduced sound.
