McIntosh has announced the availability this month in the US and Canada of two amplifier stands, the AS125 ($3,000) and AS901 ($3,500), both of which are designed for the company’s own products.

I seriously finally have come to the conclusion the McIntosh folks are absolutely completely and certifiably insane.

A 40lb 3 inch thick block of White Ash -- stained and lacquered with a lighted nameplate and 4 feet attached -- all for the discount price of $3500? At least the 200lb amplifier itself is something mechanical with tubes and othe fancy stuff for $18000 (each)

The stand is only $50, it's that $3450 nameplate that gets you.

You can also buy the McIntosh LB100 light box for $1.5k.

Who the heck do you think Apple learned from? Remember the $700 wheels for the MacProMoney computer?

They are still a thing HERE

The wheels got them what must be MILLIONS of dollars in free marketing when they were first put on the market.
