Default Really? REALLY??

Aw just for fun - $500,000 loudspeakers. I just perused higherfi.com and they list the most expensive stuff first. $650,000 for a turntable, and the same for an amplifier (well it IS a 20,000 watt amp).

Have fun

Job creators? Maybe so. Somebody gets to play for pay on these fantasy bits. I hope.

If everyone of us bought one of these we could create a perpetual motion machine of ******** and save the world economy.

Doesn't that lower driver look a lot like the little rubber nub from a playstation?

I hope they come with an operation to install half a million dollars worth of ears, so I can hear all of the ******** that these will put out.

There thats all I got folks.

Strangely enough this ridiculously overpriced gear thrives in a market incomprehensible to us mere mortals..

Aesthetically speaking I don't even like the look..

Click the image to open in full size.

what about the solid gold ones?
I hear they don't resonate as badly as aluminum.
great damping qualities.
