Does anyone else think that these speakers were influenced by Indiana Jones & The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull? For $1,000 I hope they sound as good as they look! :)

Don’t show these to the wife. She’ll want them ‘cause they’re “pretty”. Ugh.

If the build quality of the drivers/enclosure/crossover is good enough – I don’t see why they wouldn’t be worth it. A lot of people balk at equipment that expensive until they actually hear it. I tell people about the grado gs-1000s that retailed not too long ago for a thousand dollars (they are headphones). They would say “that’s ridiculous!!! A grand for a pair of earphones! How stupid”. Then I went and listened to them and realized that there is simply no other way to experience music to such a degree then to pay the price for entry.

The system I’m running uses toslink/coax/analog interconnects which cost $100 a piece. I have a monster powerline 300 power cord which cost $80 hooked up to my tube headphone amplifier which cost half a grand. I plan on purchasing the Lavry DA10 DAC (another thousand) when I get enough money and I’m using $300 headphones. The only system I’ve ever heard that even rivals much less exceeds the level of detail and nuance I can pick from my system was a set of $20 thousand Ushers – the BE-20s hooked up to components costing more than most people’s houses…

I’m sure they probably sound pretty fantastic. Sure – hook it up to a POS soundcard with bad converters and output stages and you can say what you want (I’m sure that’s exactly what a lot of the critics will end up doing…) but most of the people who are really critical of a lot of this stuff have no idea about the technology or concepts behind it (which is why people think expensive speakers are stupid and their computer speakers or set of cheap floorstanding polk’s are “just as good” – yeah, sure).

I find it absolutely hilarious that the list that says “What do users ultimately buy after viewing this?” shows The Dark Knight.

So people’s first thought after buying that is “I NED A GUD MOVEH NAO D :<!!!”
