HRA Music System - Best Sound Under $10,000 - RMAF 2015, Enjoy the Music.com

"The best 'budget' system at the show, this was a tough one since almost every system at the show had one component that ended up breaking it from this budget category. Some 'inexpensive' systems broke the $10,000 mark on power conditioning alone. Thus, my favorite true sub $10,000 system was a great offering from Benchmark Media Systems, at just $7,500 dollars for a very capable system cables and all, this system takes the cake. You can see more details about the sound in the Day 1 write up. $7,500 gets you punchy musical bass, great tonal accuracy, and endless upgrade paths within the system with very capable components on all sides."
