Bang & Olufsen’s BeoCenter 2 music system doesn’t just blur the boundaries between home theater components — it blows the sub­woofers off them. Using this little beauty, owners can name and program up to 200 CDs, experience integrated DVD playback, and enjoy both digital music and AM/FM radio broadcasts. The fusion of audio and video never sounded sweeter. $4,100. www.bang-olufsen.com
