2012 Holiday Headphone Gift Guide from John Grandberg
... from John Grandberg
Horns for the Holidays - Jerry Junkin and Dallas Wind Symphony (Reference Recordings RR-126) ($16.98)|
There must be countless albums full of Christmas music out there, with more coming every year. Unfortunately, much of it is poor in both musical quality and content. Not so with the latest from the Dallas Wind Symphony, courtesy of the aptly-named Reference Recordings. This brilliant album is full of Christmas music that you'll actually enjoy listening to--and it will sound great on your system, too.
Emotiva Pro Airmotiv5 ($399)
Leckerton UHA-6S mkII ($279)|
Talk about a great stocking stuffer--this little unit has it all. The high-quality DAC section has 3 inputs so it works just as well at home as it does on the road. It also has an excellent headphone amp, with high/low gain setting to accommodate a wide range of headphones. Highly recommended.
MOG Streaming Music Service ($4.99/mo computer only, $9.99/mo all platforms)|
With all this talk about measurements and equipment, it's important to remember the thing that we are all working so hard to accurately reproduce--music. Giving the gift of music is almost always appreciated. But what to give? Simple--give them access to practically everything with MOG! MOG gift cards are available exclusively through Target and come in $20 increments--enough for two months of unlimited service.
