Default Expensive gear???


I juste founde a site that claims that some some company,
"Atma-sphere" is selling an amp for 25000!!!!!$
Check it out yourself http://www.geocities.com/jm011500/PAGE13.html

Can this really be??! I mean, does anyone spend this amount of money on a stereo system?
What makes this amp that expensive??? Development cost? or parts?

I cannot get to the site, but I would offer "gullible consumers" as an option.

that´s a lot of amp for 25000$ You can buy much smaller amps, with only 2 or 3 tubes (ongaku one) for 50000$ or more
If people want to spent this amount of money and they´re happy with it.....let them.

People (not this person) pay that for speaker cables. Check out the cable section of Audio Asylum.


The name says it all.

People pay considerably more dissected cows in formaldehyde and paintings done in elephant dung.
As for amp in question it is the Atma-Sphere MA-2 MK II
