I recommend this coz you mentioned your friend is an audiophile.It has flat sound signature.
If he needs a v shaped sound signature go with 2.1 system of your choice.

Is he/she an audiophile or just a music enthusiast? Both have different requirements.

If they like music but don’t care too much about quality, get speakers.

If they are true audiophile and can spend money to buy music, get them a vinyl record player.

Hmm. decibels measures loudness level and Hz measures different frequencies. Human audio range is between 20Hz to 20KHz. If we further subdivide the range to different sub ranges we get, Sub-bass (16 to 60 Hz), Bass (60 to 250 Hz), Lower Midrange (250 to 500 Hz), Midrange (500 Hz to 2 kHz), Higher Midrange (2 to 4 kHz), Presence (4 to 6 kHz) and Brilliance (6 to 20 kHz).
Without going to further details if we plot frequency(Hz) vs decibels, we will get a plot. If by default our device response is a relatively flat one, say through out the audio range of 20Hz to 20KHz it can produce same level of loudness, then it has flat response. If the chart looks like a V, that means it produces lows n highs well with attenuated mids then it has a v shaped response. https://www.audioreputation.com/wp-content/uplo...

🙂🙂🙂 Audiophiles love Flat signature as they get the audio the way it’s produced. 🙂🙂🙂

No idea about current market, bro.

However if he is not too tech savvy, try Carvaan.

A home theater might also be good if he can handle the headache of changing input methods and multiple reomotes. I won’t personally recommend this for an elderly person.

In that case Saregama Carvaan is a product that was created for gifting music enthusiasts. Looks classy too.
If he loves listening music loud, then you can gift him a 2.1 system. For non audiophiles, plethora of options for 2.1 systems are available in the market and in budget.
If he loves singing along with listening (which is mostly the case), then you can gift a karaoke system.
boAt for example has all of these options.
