Follow up on another thread. Those kind of speakers on small wooden stands fascinate me. Not sure why.

The engineering side of me is aghast at some of these cabinets which contribute absolutely nothing to function, and in many cases, may degrade sound quality. Form should follow function. The rest of it is subjective art.

If Engineers Aghast isn't the name of a math-rock band already, it should be.

If it's only for the looks, I like big wooden speakers like these custom build by the japanese builder Moriyama-san for his workshop/bar/... in the Toho village in Fukuoka, Japan. Both the OB (on top) and the cabinet (below) are a MTM with old JBL drivers i thought (altough little info is giving about them). I have no id how they sound, but they look gorgious...

It has been done, it's basicly a pair of 15" woofers crossed low to a big compression driver that does the mid-high and then crossed to a supertweeter. Mid and supertweeter are hornloaded. There are some clones or almost clones made in the past by people, google them.
In the Polish press it is described as the most perfect instrument for playing music. I know, marketing, but maybe a grain of truth in it?

Price probably kills? ;)
TBD, i think you got that right......The Brand demands outrages Prices. The Asia Market goes crazy for swiss Brands (CH Precision, Nagra, Soulutions etc) all of them sells 70% to Asia Customers...

I mean Goldmund selled a DVD Player for 200`000 USD
