    You really got me thinking Polk. Time to upgrade from my Paradigm Studio V5.

  2. Christopher Oloo on December 15, 2022 at 12:44 am

    Good review, but i wish subwoofers will have a slot next year.

  3. Long P on December 15, 2022 at 12:44 am

    I was this πŸ‘Œ close to upgrading my tsi400s to Polk r500s. Do you know if the r500s are good?

  4. david watson on December 15, 2022 at 12:47 am

    What are your thoughts on the Park Audio Puffin ??

  5. Boer369 on December 15, 2022 at 12:48 am

    Got some old b&w cm1 cm2 towers bi wired with audiolab pre and power amps just for music need to upgrade any ideas guys

  6. T on December 15, 2022 at 12:48 am

  7. Leonardo Caldas on December 15, 2022 at 12:53 am

    Thank you guys. Suggestion if I may, can you add a review of preamp/processor?

  8. Gilbert on December 15, 2022 at 12:53 am

    Lii Audio S10 didn’t make the grade?

  9. Garry Campbell on December 15, 2022 at 12:53 am

    Interesting that the LG tv has been nominated by you both for product of the year but gave the tv category to the Sony (I appreciate that you both explained why the Sony one due to the out of the box usage) πŸ€”

  10. G MIII on December 15, 2022 at 12:54 am

    love my 40n

  11. Anders Ljungberg on December 15, 2022 at 12:57 am

    Perhaps you should have the category Home theater package of the year or Speaker package of the year for home theater or both. There are different types of packages on the market

  12. John Barsby on December 15, 2022 at 12:58 am

    Great video guys. I’m just curious where you now place a system like the Sony hta9 with the sw5 sub? Would this system call for a new category?

  13. Timothy Freeseha on December 15, 2022 at 12:59 am

    I have never seen such a diversity of products arrive at the audio universe with such clever design signatures. This is where my curiosity begins – always, and then I delve deeper. I think your considerations for a best of designation were sound. And , of course, we are the winners when we find our best choice.

  14. Armando Gracia on December 15, 2022 at 12:59 am

    Awesome vid, thanks, bc I get the Q990b and it’s very impressive, the soundstage πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

  15. Don Tharp on December 15, 2022 at 1:04 am

    I was suprised the sony hta9 didnt even get a mention. Was it because it doesnt fit neatly in a single catigory?

  16. Syazwan Suhaimi on December 15, 2022 at 1:10 am

    PLEASE MAKE A BEST VALUE FOR HIFI AND HOME THEATHRE!

  17. Carlos Beltran on December 15, 2022 at 1:10 am

    I you should stay out of TV Reviews!!! Your thing is "audio".

  18. bombayteddy on December 15, 2022 at 1:11 am

    No turntable?

  19. Anders Ljungberg on December 15, 2022 at 1:11 am

    Have you ever tried snell speakers or Boston acoustic speakers? Bang Olufsen stereo or speakers can also be interesting

  21. kid 1960 on December 15, 2022 at 1:14 am

    The only category I think you could add is a best bang-for-the-buck product of the year.

  22. Diavel S on December 15, 2022 at 1:15 am

    Thanks for this great video! Makes me want to sell my LS50 meta for the Polk R700. Would you recommend/advise such a change or is the difference too minor according to you? They would be connected to a Denon AVR X3700H. Thanks in advance for your precious thoughts and keep up the good work!

  23. Rob Montoya on December 15, 2022 at 1:16 am

    Hi, would you recommend the Q Acoustics Concept 50 over the Polk R700 for listening to dialogue in movies? Most of the speaker’s I have listened too I end up turning to the person next to me and I ask them "what did they say". HELP…

  24. Brian Brockhoff on December 15, 2022 at 1:16 am

    Another great year from you guys! Love it! 😎🀘 Maybe a dedicated category for streamers. Just a thought. Keep up the great work!😎🀘❀️

  25. Anders Ljungberg on December 15, 2022 at 1:16 am

    When they asked for The best speaker So the question might not apply to a speaker made in a specific year ?

  26. Philly B on December 15, 2022 at 1:18 am

    You are 100% right 99.9% of people will not pay for calibration. This is why I returned the LGC2 and purchased the Sony A80K cannot compare of box picture quality. Sony set to custom expert 1 and done, or Cinema or even I Max done. A few settings like motion and reality creation and you are done. Colors pop, skin tones look great, the XR processor gives the image depth instead of flat like the LGC2, and specular highlights like lamps on in a room or a car driving at night with the headlight on just look real and lamps in the room all have different intensity. The C2 could not do this, having said that the C2 is a great TV also, just different even its white balance is warmer and more pastel which makes the picture brownish, but if you own a C2 use filmmaker mode, turn off all the auto-dimming settings, motion set Cinema and your good to go. But the Sony looks better for movies, HDR and Dolby. C2 overall picture can look brighter but it cannot do the specular highlights as well for details.

  27. Pawel Zaorski on December 15, 2022 at 1:18 am

    Hi Andrew, I have to tell you that you have a great job and I think I envy you a little πŸ™‚ Thank you and Kristy for all these comparisons, information and recommendations. I have a question, what power cables do you use when you test individual devices? Are they standard or custom? My question stems from the fact that while looking for an amplifier to power the front speakers in my Denon AVR-X3700H while testing various amplifiers such as Naim Uniti Atom, Audiolab 6000A Play and recently the Marantz 40N that you suggested. I was recommended to try the IsoTek Evo3 Premier power cable. I am in absolute shock how it has improved the sound quality of my Denon in my opinion! I bought it right away because for 150 euros I have a class better! So the question is how are you testing?

  28. DANG 2217 on December 15, 2022 at 1:19 am

    Thanks from Sydney , great review. I need an active stereo set for my TV with hdmi , due to my small retirement apartment but i can dream of having any of this gear reviewed.

  29. Video Watcher on December 15, 2022 at 1:19 am

    I’m curious! Would you guys have 805’s or R700’s as your ONLY speakers?

  30. Matteo Sartor on December 15, 2022 at 1:19 am

    Surely you have a different kind of "budget" in mind unlike the most of us plebs πŸ˜‚ to me the arendal monitors 1961 (which I own) are the most I allowed myself to spend and can spend on audio πŸ˜…

  31. Jon Mason on December 15, 2022 at 1:20 am

    Polk R700 as overall? SHOCKING! Polk has certainly reached heights here to fore never achieved. The air is thin up there!! Great end of the year guys! Kristi, for this entry, you should have been on camera. No Excuses! The reviews are no longer Andrew solos. Your input has made a huge difference. We long haulers of Andrew’s reviews ( like me from the very beginning) know and have seen how you’ve brightened everything including Andrew. Thank you so much so let’s get you on camera for 2023. I like the picks for 2022. Blessings to you bothπŸ™

  32. Pete McFeet on December 15, 2022 at 1:20 am

    I sure wish there would have been some benchmarking with some Harbeth products. I am thinking of building a new system around new Harbeths C7ES-3XD upgrade. But I don’t know how you feel your award winners would stack up against them. Your B&W’s are a lot more money in the unlimited category for about the same sized speaker. I sure hope you get some Harbeths this year. Enjoy both of your presentation and professionalism. Cheers.

  33. Benson Jacob on December 15, 2022 at 1:20 am

    I THINK SOUNDBAR OF YEAR IS WRONG- I DIDNT TRY JBL OR KLIPSHE
    SAMSUNG-990-AWESOME BUT BASS CABINET IS LACKING/AWESOME REARS/ BUT THAT BASS CABINET DOESNT DO MUCH
    BOSE 900-WINS IN MY OPINION- LOUD SOUNDBAR/ BASS CABINET IS BANGING ,REARS DOESNT DO MUCH TILL I HID THEM BEHIND MY COUCH DURING THE ADAPT IQ HELPED/- BEST SOUNDING SYSTEM-I HEARD MUSIC NOTES I DIDNT HEAR ON THE SAMSUNG

  34. c. nash on December 15, 2022 at 1:23 am

    Music has a wide frequency band. Majority of the movies have this band. Below 80hz is not mentioned at all.

  35. DRE on December 15, 2022 at 1:23 am

    I want t know what system each of you would put together either stereo and cinema, speakers amplifier DAC TV projector etc, personally for Andrew and Kristi. Doesn’t matter what price category the components come from.

  36. Willie McLean on December 15, 2022 at 1:25 am

    Great show guys, I’m not sure what this means , but I trust you guys.

  37. Jason Ziemann on December 15, 2022 at 1:25 am

    Every time I see those Cornwells, I just fall in love with them. Absolutely beautiful.

  38. Tim Baker on December 15, 2022 at 1:26 am

    Marvelous. It would be fun to hear a comparison between this years and last years winners? early merry Christmas x

  39. bimmerboy011 on December 15, 2022 at 1:27 am

    Hi Andrew, would you consider reviewing the Vincent Audio SV 237 mk2 hybrid integrated amp please? 150 watts per channel, burr brown dac, bluetooth 5.0 ? Could be a real winner πŸ˜†

  40. Richard BYINGTON on December 15, 2022 at 1:28 am

    What are you basing your option on?
    What price range?
    My experience with Marantz customer service has been terrible
    Does that factor in CS

  41. djdnz on December 15, 2022 at 1:29 am

    Was waiting for you to review the Sennheiser Ambeo Plus to see where it stacks up

  42. Vladimir Argirov on December 15, 2022 at 1:30 am

    I love to see reviews on cheap 50-100$ Chinese amplifiers , cables! I think will be interesting.

  43. Sky on December 15, 2022 at 1:32 am

    what avengers movie is that playing on the Sony X95K tv?

  44. Fencek on December 15, 2022 at 1:33 am

    Great job guys. Andrew, any chance you can tell me what you did to fix the Samsung Q990B connection to the Sony TV?

  45. CCC on December 15, 2022 at 1:36 am

    OMG…Great choices! CCC Austin, TX (PS K+A Time to come back home!)

  46. Roman Walter on December 15, 2022 at 1:39 am

    2022 Dac winner: RME ADI-2 Speakers: McIntosh LS340 with upgraded capacitors, Preamp: McIntosh C2500 series. TV: Sampo 12” b/w πŸ˜‚

  47. Sean Hicks on December 15, 2022 at 1:39 am

    Love that the Polk R700’s are winning so much fanfare. Feels like Polk is getting back to their roots of making products that get you 95% of the way there at a price point more people can afford. I’m sure there are better speakers out there, but the value of these cannot be ignored.

  48. Cihangir Guzel on December 15, 2022 at 1:39 am

    very funny and positive video πŸ‘

  49. id.ray86 on December 15, 2022 at 1:40 am

    Really hoping you are going to get to review KEFS new in-ceiling speaker the Ci250RRM-THX ….. looks insanely amazing with a 10 in LF driver, bass down to 28Hz. Together with the new 4 in Uni-Q driver array with meta and a maximum SPL of 111db
