    Those MC Intosh's sure looks fine,however some of those turntables suggests more then passion, more like obsession or "fetish"..[​IMG]

    You mean that Clearaudio Statement turntable, right?

    I was thinking "How much do they charge for assembly?" It looks like I need to erect some kind of construction zone in the living room to assemble that thing. [​IMG]

    Great photos. Always fun to see just how far they can go in excess. The liquid nitrogen cooled speaker cables may be a 3 way tie with the McIntosh speakers and the Statement turntable.

    Interesting the Chinese are buying up some of the near defunct brands. Now that the deal for the oil company fell through, who knows what they will buy up next.

    Curious that a Communist country is buying up some of the extreme excess of Capitalism taken to the nth degree.

    Agreed. Then again, there's other vendors who are not garish and just present straigh-forward products (e.g. Cambridge Audio).

    O.K. I'll ask, why would anyone need "Liquid Nitrogen" for speakers. Educate me :b

    To be honest, I have no idea. But you've probably heard cryogenic treatments for CDs and power adaptors (guys, did I leave any cryogenic treatments out?) and they supposedly make them sound better. So I guess speaker cables is next....
