Too much money + a bad acoustical space = an audiophile's dream
Title: Re: christmas is coming
Post by: Rick O'neil on December 20, 2010, 08:02:31 am
sure some audiophile stuff is ridiculous but some of it is  surely sublime


when i see something that is so well made it is truley ridculous
and  then when it sounds so sublime i want to fall over ...
well then i just have to wish the price tag wasnt true .

oh well
maybe next christmas...

thomas if you ever hear these things i think you may cut the poor audiofools a break Smileindex.php/fa/16034/0/

never mind the speakers, the rugs in this room probably cost more than my studio. gotta say the unfinished ceiling and fluorescent lights are not really helping the vibe though!

Why don't such large subs go closer to each other than the mains?  Isn't the low end supposed to be mono.   Laughing


Also, I thank you for the images of potential gifts for me, but I am sure that I am only interested in the Kinoshitas.  True marriage of science and art.

Tell me I'm not the only one who reads it as a 4GB USB stick misprint of $24,549...

That's a package price per 1000. The price of $2479 is per 100.

And they're 8GB, not 4GB.

Time for glasses?
