I tried to raise some interest in a DIY Dinner a few months ago, but no luck.

Just coming back from the show. I am a bit disapointed: too many people and no Pass Labs product

So, how was the Show? I didn't go, but heard that the attendance wasn't as good as last year. Anything interesting there?

Default 47,000$

I just came back from show yesterday and It was not good at all in my opinion. Why we go to this shows?I think that we go to get more information about products and see how we can keep the price reasonable and enjoy the music. But these audio companies do not think like us or myself. They just like to advertise and sell more and because of this reason all this hi-fi shows are going down. I think we should come together and do the very nice diy show and stand front this companies.It might help us to bring a price to the true scale. I just was in one of the hotel rooms that they were playing the kharma speakers from Netherlands.I respect all audio designers and sound was very good but the price was 47,000 US$.
The drivers used in this speakers are a pair 11 inch eton woofers from Germany(280$ for each),one 7inch accuton ceramic midrange from Germany and I do not have the price but let's say 250$ for each and tweeter is the most expencive focal (700$ for each)those are the drivers for each speaker and if you double the price it comes up to 3k for drivers and I put another 3k for crossover and box and I understand that they have to make money too.
Ok, let's say I am wrong.
Who is agree with the price? I am talking about 47,000$
