I thought about asking that also, now I don't have to. Maybe an agreement was made to never be copied, that would be my guess.

I think it's more about how involved they were to make.  There can only be one King, and only one Crown!  They looked very, very tedious to make and get perfect.  I assume it's probably a lot more involved than the $200 reprint would get you.

Too tedious to make for 200

Ah ok, that was going to be my second guess.  Hmmm... what if the person is willing to fork out the money would you guys do a complicated customization?  :D

So, I could theoretically order a second set of K10s made out of meteorite iron and moon rock with embedded diamonds? Count me in!

Knee pads? A little young to get her a job installing carpet. :biggrin:

WHoo hoo!!  Ok, I'll ask if there's a need for more payment for a custom print.  Thanks! :ksc75smile:

Do not joke about that. If I could get a CIEM made out of meteorite I'd pay the fee to change my order now and whatever the additional was for the work.

Whole thing chiseled out of a meteorite with a clear casing to fill in and smooth out the uneven surfaces? I'm in.

Now we're talking biggrin.gif:D:D

My impressions are sent, just went for "ordinary" wood & gold from good old Mother Earth tongue.gif

Procuring meteorites or similar is not a problem, however working with extremely hard materials like rocks is an issue. Furthermore, let's say that we were able to utilize the material, there would be a question of weight and how that would ultimately influence/impact your listening experience. I proposed to the labs a meteorite nugget of sorts, but that does not exactly remedy the issue of weight either.

That and the fact that meteorites tend to just look like any other rock. No, if I was serious enough about the suggestion I would actually ask for something like powderizing moon rock and using that the way you guys use glitter, or something to that effect. Though that probably wouldn't work very well since moon rock is a pretty poor reflector.

I'm actually rather excited about what I requested. I chose solid black with filaments, the idea (in my head) being slightly reminiscent of particle collisions in the LHC.

Not sure I could be much more of a nerd at this particular moment...

Solid black with filaments is a great choice, I believe you will be happy with the results.
