Ugh 6 million?!?!?! I guess no matter how much money some people have, they will always find ways to throw it away foolishly. I wonder if he contributes any money to charities?

Default My Observations -

Wasted money - he's bought a lot of things that don't improve sound quality and -

Overbuilt - the system can reach levels higher than "live" - at least in terms of unamplified live, i.e., a symphony orchestra can reach 110 dB - I don't need to hear a recording at higher than that.

Also one could argue the set-up/placement of speakers is not optimal, and there appears to be no room treatment etc.

If he's a music producer, it may be more of a business investment. That is: just showing it off may bring business his way.

I found a reference to the room - it is thoroughly designed and built acoustically, including room/wall treatments.
