How much does those speakers cost?I believe the MSRP on the Red Rose is $3500 per pair. The street price (remember, these are sold in China) on the Leisure2 is $348 US per pair. The Leisure 2 Deluxe that I actually opted for are a bit different:
As you can see, they have slanted sides (and wood side paneling) to reduce standing waves, an upgraded voice coil and larger speaker magnet. I believe the street price of those is $396 US per pair or so, again in China. Getting them to the US, of course, is the difficulty.
a "fair price" (just speculating here) in the rest of the world would be around $1,000 bucks per pair."Fair price"? Nah. Any REAL audiophile would NEVER allow mere money to stand in the way of Audio Nirvana. Anyone who questions whether he's getting something real for his money is just a crass cheapskate.
