A Note On High-End Boutique Speaker Brands

It wouldn't feel right to leave a “best of” article without talking about the high-end boutique brands that exist on the market.

The following are but some of the world's most expensive speaker brands. Each is a marvel of speaker engineering and manufacturing.

Some of the speakers from these brands have MSRPs in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. It figures, then, that these brands and their speakers may certainly be among the best in the world.

However, with such a small niche market and impractical pricing, I did not feel compelled to include them in the top 11.
