Default WTF, are they serious?

OK I know this isn't fullrange but I got a good laugh today when I opened up Solens webpage for a quick order... Take a look at this company, they must be on some pretty serious pharmaceuticals if they think they will sell any drivers. Sheeit, $12,000 + Crossovers for a two way using the ZRSaturn, and the ZRNO1?

That's pretty pricey all right. Compares with the cost of
commercial retail product.

Aren't you glad to be a DIYer?

Christ I just saw these and almost pooped myself! WOW, who and why would anyone buy these.... I mean yes they look and probably sound spectacular, but come on, we're in a downed economy already, trying to make us all bankrupt are they!!!

Montreal is quite an expensive place to live, but not $10,000/pr of drivers, come on. The price of these make Lowthers look like a cheap knock off, I'm sure they sound magical, but how much magic will happen when I decide to throw on some Eagles, or hell even Ozzy? I'm not a huge believer in purpose building a driver for a certain musical style and something tells me this company is catering toward Classical, Vocal, and Jazz apps, nothing more. And at that price the drivers better be able to achieve that Magic with all music types, including all the new age Hip-hop and dance. Anyway rant over I just figured it's kind of peculiar that the prices are as high as they are without a great deal of justification for the extra cost..!!! I don't know, I give up....

I've got a pair of those. My wife is a swedish supermodel and she is jealous of how much time I spend with them. They live and breathe emotion and purity. The are true life's essence transpired into a single set of drivers.

Or something like that.
