Absurd.
But what is more amazing is that they built it because they think that they are going to sell it !

Think of the system you could buy for $50,000. $500 for a Salamander rack, and. $49,500 for the rest.

Eliminating vibration is important to better sound. However, for the average user spending the $50k on better gear will probably give better results. On the other hand, if you are using Magicos top of the line $175K speakers, along with other 6 figure electronics, and 5 figure cables, then 50K for a rack is probably a small investment.

I think isolation device is very important. My BDI furniture makes my Aurieges humm like crazy.

How do you know that?
I have talked to Wolf at the show, and he said it was built for their use, not as a product for sale, but since it performs so well, they do get orders to build these. The rack has over 250 lbs. of machined copper alone and it is MASSIVE. If you attended the CES, you may have wondered why Magico room (using these racks) sounded better than other Magico rooms (not using these racks). Not sure the racks are the reason but… BTW, there are just as expensive, if not more, racks out there that may, or may not, performs as well but sure don’t look as slick (Critical Mass)

My remark was just ironic.
Of they think they will sell it.
Mr Lacoste, you defend Magico like a Crocodile

BTW, do you know the price of 250 lbs of copper ? Around 600 euros, let's say 800 dollars.
I still don't see the relation with the price asked and I still think it is absurd to spend 50k in a rack but anyone is free to do whatever he wants with his money....

Jerome... But maybe the entire rack is drawn from a single mono crystal copper filament? That would make it expensive. Voila! Magico.
