I actually mounted one of these on a wall for a customer to provide power for his executive office system...
I understand these are statement pieces but I'm sure many of us have crunched the numbers and considered putting off a vacation in order to enjoy some ultra high end equipment. Two weeks of sheer "joy" with the family or a full year of listening pleasure in a confined space... alone... with no arguing.
This serious consideration then raises the question... are these components really worth the price? Are they that much better than a 2k set? Is it all about the out of reach price tag? I suppose points could be argued on both sides but I'm focused on the sound quality. Is it actually possible to build a driver that far exceeds its competition and commands such a serious cost? Do $40K towers sound $38k better than a $2k no name factory direct offering using similar drivers and cabinets? Then again, it's subject to interpretation by the listener.
I guess I'm done dreaming now. Sinfoni makes some beautiful products and I hope I have an opportunity to listen to some in person one day (though I doubt a CT dealer exists). Perhaps on the next FUN family outing to Disney World...
