I wouldn't know a $50K toilet if I sat on one, but yes, there is a lot of wealth in this area.I know little about Bosendorfers, but Yamahas and Kawais seem to be the choice of many serious performers as practice instruments. I was surprised to hear that a famous pianist who went to my relative's house to practice on the D before a performance confessed that he has a Kawai at home.
I wonder how many of these systems are sold in the Bay Area. A buddy regularly visits the homes of billionaires in Atherton, and, while I hear tales of $50K Toto toilets, insane kitchens, bowling alleys, and indoor pools, I never hear of audio systems like this.
I live in Scarsdale, New York, and the nicest stereo I've ever seen in someone else's house around here was a system with older Sonus Faber floorstanders--with one of the speakers in the dining room and the other one in the living room (no joke).
