    On my short list to own. Listened to a pair about 15 years ago and was amazed of their reproduction ability. They were being fed by a McIntosh tube system (cannot remember the models) and a Thorens TD124 as the source. I do remember the LP, which was Luciano Pavarotti singing Nessun Dorma. Probably one of the few times I have just closed my eyes and listened. RIP Mr. Pavarotti.

    The look and sound better in person (JM Labs Grande Utopias) and do not need unobtanium power amps to push them.

    AT 80k + for a pair (and theft proof at over 400 lbs. each) I hope they would also help with the security of my home. :). Beautiful looking design though.

    All the equipment shown here is really nice love the receivers, but ever since I bought my first integrated amplifier a Kenwood KA 3500 I was hooked wish I still had it. From then on I've been with Yamaha integrated amplifies, I can't see myself going to anything else although there is some wonderful equipment out there and looking at them all it's like a kid in a candy store I'm happy.

    That is an Onkyo M-510, this one here is from 1988. It was 920,000 yen at the time, but a favorable dollar had it selling for $4,500 here.
