Apparently it cost as much as "a set of 2 cars".
That is more a poor translation to English probably meaning pair, while the SB-M series was good and not very cheap it was far away from being very expensive. 66000 yen was rather the price of 2 1/10 scale RC models cars at that time.

Yeah it did seem kind of steep considering what else came out of Japan

It's a bit awkward, but I still get the drift.

Sonos "ERA 3000"

SONOS claims literally the ERA model is a all-in-one speaker capable to support spatial audio with Dolby Atmos, making it easier than ever to experience immersive, enveloping sound you can feel "all around you".

Here is its breakdown

KLIPSCH has got several awards from audio and general press with their KLIPSCH the One II, as the best wireless speaker, getting into a collaboration with the McLaren team, to my knowledge purely to marketing purposes, not technical of any kind.

Watching a set of these on ebay currently. Anyone know if they are as good as they look? IMF Cambridge A50
View attachment 89487
I used or built a few like these (and variants) back in the day. They were pretty good but not up to the full-sized IMF TLS 80 variant with separate and narrower enclosure for the 3 smaller drivers. Memories.........................
