During the course of creating this show, I set a mental “cap” that no piece of equipment would cost more than $3000.  With few exceptions, I’ve stuck to that directive.  Today however, we push right up to the edge of that limit with three different units:  The $2999 Peachtree Nova 500, the $2499 Vincent Audio 247mkII, and the roughly (It’s discontinued now) $2500 Parasound Halo.  

Now…the truth is, we’d be happy to have ANY of these units on our shelf.  Have a listen to see which one we picked as the best of the three!
