30 grand for speakers that look like they were made in somebody's basement. Just stunning. As good as they may have been in the '40s, I think loudspeaker technology has moved on just a tad. I'll put my $30K towards these instead.

A big factor in their aesthetics, hard to see in the photo, are the "violin strings" in the front grills and all the way round the stands.

+1. The only better wood finishes I've seen are on statement furniture and artwork (so we're talking about JUST WOOD that costs more than those speakers). They also *sound* fantastic, which completes the entire package. Sitting next to 802Ds or other equally expensive stuff, they just look awkwardly out of place. Like a Rolls-Royce at a Toyota dealership.

Has anyone here heard the Living Voice speakers? They look neat, but I've never seen them outside of Living Voice's promotional literature.

Dave,

Are those the Sony speakers that are held together by nothing but compression?

The Dynaudio Confidence C1 are the best playing and best looking speakers I have ever had.

No, they are Rockport's new Avior. $30K, 220lbs. The front baffle is 6" thick.

The new model from Sonus Faber -Evolution- is very beautiful.

I like the MBLs.  They are so radically different than the box looking speakers.  I have had an opportunity to see and hear many of the MBL models except for The Extremes.  They look really cool and give off a surrounding style sound.
