Default Only if I win the lottery

I'd start with (4) of these!

JBL Project Everest DD65000 and DD67000 Flagship Loudspeakers Preview

Audioholics Clint DeBoer's First Impression? Pretty Cool

Why not? For some outlandish transducers, these must be it, at only $150,000 for (4) of them. To start... Then you need the amps. Also each unit merely weighs about 400 pounds. That will make a floor pretty steady don't you think?

since this is about DIY, build them yourself, at a fraction of that price ... and possibly even be better

Well diy is plan A, I think?! The lottery is only a backup, just in case...

thinking outside the box often proves worthwhile.

and when we can't get out of the box,

doubling the number of boxes might help .

100%

and the fact that when discontinued,

their value will most likely go up.

this poster is a huge fan of 'thinking big' .


such as this system from a blog in japan.


and,

the ceiling is high enough that there is room

for the owner to stack four more 4350's -

Sigh. I guess I evolved past the "mine is bigger" days. Besides, Berwin just about set a mark no one is ever going to match with his cement horns.

Wow! These are all outlandishly sexyspeakers, and systems, and essential accessories!

Maybe I shouldn't count on the lottery? Alas I need to realistically upgrade my test equipment (measurements) bench with digital oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzers, plus soldering / desoldering vacuum station, universal programmer, etc, and figure it will cost at least $10K (maybe a bit more). First things first for DIY. Yay!

Why not?

One has a million times better chance of injury in a car accident......so I don't play anymore. Guess I'll have to earn it the old fashioned way..........But this would look nice in the house.

It's the house, and listening room, that would benefit if I won the lottery. Well placed dollars would have a larger impact there. Oh, not to mention the ocean views and the cocktails served by the butler...
