Wow, a true bargain. We can all afford the scaled down Chronosonic that offers almost as much performance as the even more ridiculously overpriced Maxx. Too bad this gets front page coverage and will soon be getting reviews with quotes like "Sets a new standard in this price range!". Journalists who could never afford these products in the real world will be heaping praise to get a subsidized pair and ads in their magazine, or on their website. Why not call it like it is? Overpriced, profit margin driven product to sell to rich men who need to compensate for something missing in their life.
Really high end hifi without exception looks ridiculous and the cost is 'somehow' proof of quality above and beyond any previous experience. I honestly despise the idea of massive cables , industrial weighted shelving and the utter ridiculous designs in speakers and the need of box after box. Don't get me started on turntables over a grand!
