Brooks Berdan Ltd.

Best High-End Stereo Store, August 2007

Optimal Enchantment and Weinhart Design sell state-of-the-art components from manufacturers like Audio Research and Meridian. If you crave a nonpareil listening experience, however, take your ears to Brooks Berdan Ltd.  System prices range from $3,000 to $500,000, but this equipment could put Disney Hall to shame. Mr. Berdan carries acrylic turntables and stainless steel amplifiers from such artisan-quality companies as Wilson Audio and Jadis.
