It's all about what people will pay at the end of the day.
    I think that as before retirement, I spent many years in the HiFi trade, demonstrating, selling and installing HiFi equipment and speakers that I have a background with some expertise, and therefore can justifiably state that the speakers under discussion are the BEST that I'V ever heard and in my opinion sound better than they look.

    I think they look absolutely vile. Not that it matters. But they look plain odd. A real case of stand aethetics over sensible design.

    Any insight into what design parameters make these so good?

    It is everyone's own idea of what is great and perfect I guess. First time imprssive doesnt always mean you will like a few months in. Speakers especially suffer from this. I quite like my ow ones but am first to admit they have their faults. Its just that I can currently live with them.

    One wonders how long it will be before someone markets a $1,000,000 set of speakers.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Surely not..? For a pair of speakers.... Maybe one of the AOS members who went to the high end show will know if such things exist? The subset of "can afford that no problem" + "would know good speakers if I heard them as I've been into hi fi and live music for years" must be quite small I would guess...
