Big sound can come from small speakers: You just need a lot of power and a clever design. The Paradigm Millenia CT has a crushing peak-system power of 480 watts, but won't clutter up the living room since there's no bulky receiver set-top box, just an Apple-TV-size control unit (the amplifier is built into the subwoofer). Its satellites boast spacious treble, while its eight-inch cone sub delivers driving bass. Invest and home-movie night will never be the same. [$700; paradigm.com]
