I REALLY REALLY REALLY love audio, but anyone in my area has my permission to commit me when I go that far (like I could...LOL)

All that kit, and he's got a rack of what? 30 CDs... Yeah, I bet they're not even his favourite music, just the usual 'audiophile' stuff...

You should have seen the reaction in my store when I cranked Rage against the machine on a pair of Original B&W Nautilus speakers. Those were incredible, though! Love them to bits!

All these posts make me realize what a sheltered life I must be living. I have got to get out more and see some of these things and hopefully get to listen to some of them!

Seems like horns are always the most bizarre.
I recently saw some pics of a guy who had built some massive horns extending 50ft out of the side of his house, but can't find it again...

Re: Rare, weird, unusual, amazing and/or interesting...

Greetings, The Mona Lisa, any Ferrari, a Rolls Royce, a P-51 Mustang or a $250,000 stereo system...... Except for the Mustang, I have no urge to own any of these things,and yet I'm glad they exist. Some of this "Bleeding edge of the art" gear pushes the envelope of what's possible in sound reproduction. In addition, the very best of these products are crafted by dedicated audio heads who are really jazzed up by what they're doing. I'm a strong believer in the trickle down theory when it comes to audio. A lot of these advances come down to a price level where us mere mortals can afford it. Snake oil and mirrors junk excluded, there is a lot of lust worthy gear out there!

Yep, Thats the one!

That is insane, and awesome at the same time. I want to hear it. By the looks of it that whole system is worth way more than the house!


Lots of amazing stuff out there.

That takes the cake. Wild. How muck do you think he spent on cables to the compression drivers on the other end of the yard?
