Sure, shopping is part of the holiday fun, but there’s something to be said about knocking out your list early so you can enjoy all the seasonal fun the city has to offer.
In that vein, we sent NYC DJ Quiana Parks to musical wonderland the HARMAN Store at 54th and Madison streets to see if she could tackle her holiday shopping in one punch—and she did!
She spent a single afternoon in the brightly lit, interactive showroom, getting tips from the staff and testing out a bunch of top-tier audio equipment from brands like JBL, Harman Kardon, AKG, Revel, Mark Levinson and Arcam. She fell in love with a pair of glowing speakers, rocked some headphones and speakers, and jammed in the listening lounge, which, appropriately enough, is festooned with twinkling lights for the season.
We caught her shopping spree on video, which you can check out here along with a list of must-buy items from the store. Here are the five products we loved, perfect for friends and family (and you, if you’re in a treating mood).
