List yours here.

AA Battery Charger w/ Rechargeable Batteries ($<50) -. Great solution for wireless controllers/ video game controllers or really anything that eats up a lot of AA batteries. These can be found pretty much at any electronics store.

RadioShack SPL Meter ($45) – A must have for any serious home theatre enthusiast. Snow day? Forget about snowboarding and skiing. Now is a good time to play around with speaker and subwoofer placement.

Panasonic BD60 Blu-ray player ($150-$200) – One of the best budget Blu-ray players around. Reliable, great up conversion, excellent Blu-ray play back. The future of home theatre!

Monoprice Indoor HDTV Antenna ($17.11) – Receives over the air SDTV and HDTV. There are better Antennas out there but this should pick up a lot of stations in areas with good signals; rural areas might struggle with signal strength/# of channels. Not much to lose if you take into consideration the price.

Koss KSC75 Portable Headphones (<$25) – One of the many great headphones made by Koss. Comes with a lifetime warranty.

Sony MDR V6/7506 Closed Headphones ($<130) – One of the “industry standard” studio headphones used by many professionals.

Alessandro Music Series 1 Open Headphones ($100-110) – Simple Design. These are terrific sounding headphones in this price range. Comfort might take some getting use to for some.

Sand Disk Sansa Clip/Clip+ ($20(1GB) -$80(8GB)) – Regarded as the best budget Portable MP3 Player. Extreme portability. Clip+ offers expandable memory.

http://www.sandisk.com/products/sansa-music-and-video-players/sandisk-sansa-clipplus-mp3-player-

Cowon S9 8 GB PMP ($199) – Touch Screen, sleek/elegant design, superior battery length (55hrs for music/11hrs for video), superb audio and video playback, plenty of customizable features.
