    Wow, I can think of much better speakers for $10k, but I guess this is a collector's item....

    One of the speakers, made by anyone, I still very much want to hear. The following EXCELLENT site has loads of info, much of it sourced from former JBL engineering and construction employees, about this and other JBL models:

    The James B. Lansing "Paragon"

    The JBL Paragon is an audio icon, a revered single-chassis stereo speaker system. From the days of the Bozak Concerto series, the Altec-Lansing A7, the Acoustic Research AR-3a, the Rectilinear III, the original Quad electrostatic, etc., etc.

    Wayne, are you crazy!?

    It is $700 to my house and that seems cheap.

    How would you ship something like that, its ***HUGE***. You would basically have to get a freight company to pick it up and deliver it to the person without it leaving the truck/container, almost a courier service.
