What is the going market price for the headphone/amp Orpheus package these days?

I ask because I stumbled upon a set at a local shop for what seems to be a great price of $7000 Canadian. (About $5650 US current exchange)

What do you guys think?

I wouldn't pay much for them, but I've never been particularly interested in them. Personally, no phones are worth $5000; I could buy a nice car with that cash.

I think we actually agree on something. No headphone for 5,000 could meet my expectation..

I think you buy these phones as a deep pocketed collector. They are as beautiful and rare as they get. Is anyone actually interested in buying these? I'm pretty sure my gf would break up with me if I bought them, even at that price!

If there is a store in the bay area, I will be happy to check them out...

That's less than the HE90 usually goes for around here. Still, I wouldn't pay that much for headphones. I think there's a Magnepan 20R pair going for $4,500 on Audiogon. That's what I'd get. Or I'd buy a vintage car to wrench on or maybe put it down on some real estate.
