Guys, here's the room you never want to show your new girlfriend and wife-to-be. If she asks, "what's in that locked room?" Tell her it's a marijuana greenhouse or a bondage pit. Anything but reveal the depths of your audio insanity.
That said, I can't even begin to describe how badly I want one of these systems. Mad scientist Jerry Ramsey of Audio Magic (cables, juice boxes, amps, and damn near everything else except normal speakers) has created the Holy Grail of audio, the Super System. Or, at least, so says the PFO crew who, with drool-covered chins, describe their experience to this den of decadence.
If you look at the picture, those aren't CDs on the ground, but LPs which means, of course, those drivers are huge. 24" and 18" Hartley drivers with massive ribbons by Eminent Tech and Raven. Little JBLs flush out the system. How it all works, I have no idea. But it's not just a bunch of drivers thrown everywhere. There's some genuine work that went into this bad boy and, supposedly, it sounds flippin' amazing. Read the links for the goodies.
Priced-to-move at $500k, you'll need some serious space for installation. Though it appears the speakers are built into the wall, the truth is the speakers are actually mounted on a false wall with a good deal of space behind. Heck, if you're spending $500k, might as well build a separate "listening house," no? Come on, people, I know some of you have them.
If you want one of these systems, Ramsey will build it in your house and tweak it to perfection. Don't know if anyone has actually purchased this system but if you are one of the lucky few, well, you can reach me via email at the link to the right. I was considering South Beach for spring break, but now, gosh, I'm just a little torn...
