This is a crazy hobby.  I mean, what about a $106,000 amp?  $15k seems like a drop in the bucket in comparison!

But it's got Super-fast ring-emitter transistors in X-crossed array......it's the best there is. Check out the 263k Dalek speakers:

Oh, wait, those are the more affordable 73K speakers. The 101X is here....weird transducers, they are! http://www.unitedhomeproducts.com/mbl_reference_components.htm

Okay I think I've found the peak of insanity in this hobby.

If I ever get to this point, please, someone rob me because I've obviously got too much money.

Just to share some audio p0rn, I think this one takes the cake in terms of insanity:

I believe Each contains a bunch of fixed jumpers (electrical, not wooly) and maybe some passive components so when they're plugged in, the system is configured for a particular type of tubes.

That's what I call a beauty....

post #120 of 122

So... has anyone actually tried this beast yet? I'd be really curious to hear some impressions as I've always loved the tubes it uses (drivers, powers, and rectifers) and they really are beautiful pieces. Yet I can't help but feel it's a waste of money for anyone who's not going to make use of its power amp capabilities as well.
