I am surprised they left out the Genesis Dragon, the Nola Reference IV, Arakis, Marten Coultrane Supreme II and a couple of others.

Total overkill. Am sure I'd be happy with a set of $90,000 speakers.

I thought most stunningly beautiful. If I had the money I feel sure I'd fall to my wants and buy them. (although I'd hope I'd be more grounded)
