And other one from Liberace:
"He who dies with the most toys wins."
OK, first off the room effect there remove $248,000.00 quality from the loudspeakers. It's playing in a great big bathtub... boom boom boom --more reverb than the Cologne Cathedral, like 13 seconds? 15 foot ceiling, approx 30 feet wide, and a guess, 45 foot deep. 15x30x45=20,000+ sq ft. Not bad, those amps can push that much, and presumably the speakers can take the power, but sheese, all that glass, and no carpets? And the ceiling is flat and looks like plaster. Nothing there to break up standing waves. That appears to be a flat panel TV in the center. It's maybe a 65" pano but the seating area is back in binocular country, around 20 feet away. I wouldn't want to watch a subtitled movie from.
Now about the windows. There does appear to be some light screening and filtering going on, like a fain screen over the glass, but I guess stops around 1/2 a stop, but that is not going to cut much light during the day, so perhaps the flat panel is what is called an outdoor tv, if not, this is going to be an after dark event watching movies.
After a certain price level, quality reaches limit and it then becomes "what is your favorite cocktail?" You may like a Manhattan, me a Sidecar, and our friend over there an, old fashion, but it is hard to say one is better than the other. I don't know where that price level is, but I can say for sure it is a lot lower than a quarter million.
It's clearly a marketing shot, designed to tweak someone who has money, the issue is the buy (Sell?) the very best, and conspicuously so. That it does. I kind of like the looks, slightly French Belle Epoque.
I remember the old joke about hi-fi from the 60's.
Question: What is the biggest problem in hi-fi?
Answer: "You are going to put those where?"
