Holiday Gift Guide 2012: Audio Equipment

Once upon a time, there was one way to listen to music: live. These days we're expecting our audio to be wireless, portable, customizable—and sound even better than the original recording. Below, solutions that are analog, digital, and somewhere in between.

For Minimalists Seeking Maximal Sound
Bowers & Wilkins A7

This powerful wireless music system uses Apple AirPlay to stream audio from iOS devices and hard drives running iTunes. Four stereo drivers, a 6-inch woofer, and five class D amplifiers pump out impressive, detailed sound, while the design remains sleek and minimalist. A free set-up app lets you easily connect, choose, and manage your A7 wirelessly.
