Default A Great buy!

Anyone interested in some new speakers - or a new house - either one, take your pick.

For that money you could just get an in house band on retainer.

I have it on good authority that the General will throw in a "lightly used" Mil Mi-24 Hind Gunship painted fetchingly to match the Afghan coutryside if you take this rabble of his hands

$165K? Peanuts!

That won't even buy you a one room condo to put your speakers in, where I live.

Wonder if the spheres will be at RMAF?

Hi,

Anone read the stereophile review ?

Quote:
So—to $165,000, add another $100,000 for the four pairs of
speaker cables and balanced interconnects, for a grand total
of $265,000—and that's just for the amps and speakers and
the wire to hook them up with.
Preamp and source components and their wires are extra.
..........

/sreten.

Ah, it would appear the picture which kind of made that comment make sense has disappeared/ been removed . I can't quite understand why? I don't think it was offensive? Mod care to shed any light?

Asides from that, $100,000 for a set of 4 speaker cables? WOW Is that for a particular length, I guess at that rate needing a few extra metres stretch would cost you a new car.

Heck - I'm just jealous that I can't get $165,000 for a pair of speakers that will certainly sound better!! Am I crazy or something? If I sold a couple pair at that price I could retire.

Ignore that, for some reason the pic works again... good ole cyberspace, it's a wonder more stuff doesn't get lost in there.

I actually find them quite discomforting to look at, It would feel like being stared down every time you sat down.
The stands are hideous IMO, though I doubt very much they are concerned about losing my potential custom.
