Meet the King Kong of Ping Pong

The $14,500 Stiga Studio makes average table tennis look like plain old monkey business.



The Stiga Studio is a ping pong table ready to bring the party. Far from the painted sheets of particleboard found in most make-shift game rooms, the ostentatiously strutted, 700-pound, Bluetooth-compatible, ten-speaker table feels designed for high-stakes tournaments. Even if you’re not playing on it, the system throws out 2,800 watts of sound and has a pair of 12-inch subwoofers with enough bounce to keep the balls hopping. Internal amplifiers make your streamed music shine and there's a karaoke feature in case you want to hook up a microphone and scream victory chants at your opponents. As for the regulation-sized surface? Its all business, with hardened enamel-coating, customizable LED lights, and a pair of aircraft-grade aluminum supports that hold its net in place. Ridiculous? Sure. But it's a head-turning sculpture designed for heated rivalries and raucous celebrations. [$14,500; stigaus.com]
