It is really amusing how Hi-Fi industry has built immunity against money. These days even a large amount of money one would spend have no benefits.
A few days ago I was talking with an audio guy and he asked me what speakers might he consider if he wiling to spend $25.000.00. I honestly said that I do not know, as I’m not familiar with any reasonably performing speakers that should cost $25.000.00. The $25.000.00 is a lot of money and for that sum a think a person should get something more then a severally compromised sound and the typical pathetic designer's excuse: “it would be too expansive to make it better”. However, what surprised me in my thinking on this subject is not the fact that there is nothing out there that costs $25.000.00 but the fact that even paying twice as much a person would not get any better choices.
If a person on a market for $1K-$2K loudspeaker than there are quiet a few very reasonably performing options. However, when you pay 25x or 50x times more, then what would you get if the 95% of all speakers-candidates deliver less interesting result then a $1K-level loudspeaker.
Ironically, that this situation become a norm in audio industry and the manufacturers, distributors, dealers, and the marketing doodleists keep brewing this situation with your, the listeners, silent agreement…
