Fellas, we've been slumming

Recommended Posts

Slumming, worse than that, I have been living in a ditch compared to those prices.

At least you have a ditch.  Oh, how we longed for the luxury of a ditch.  Tell kids that nowadays, and they don't even believe you....

I dont see how people own a new set of any home speakers these days. I have been buying only second or third hand since the mid 80's

I have watched a few youtube videos on these setups and literally every single room had horrible rooms with not even basic sound treatment or positioning. One guy even had these little wooden "room boundary pucks" on poles which were supposed to resonate and block the sound from reflecting off the wall somehow.

 We can always blame AC/DC for those big balls!  😎

 

Well I'm rather upper class high society
God's gift to ballroom notoriety
And I always fill my ballroom
The event is never small

The social pages say I've got
The biggest balls of all

There is no way on G-d’s green earth these products are worth that kind of money. My nose nearly bleeds thinking of the markups involved.

Yes, that worked with BMW motorcycles (and probably cars) at one point back in the Seventies or Eighties.  Due to the German mark becoming much stronger, it became necessary to raise the prices of the bikes, which caused some concern for the marketing guys.  One of the brighter ones got a really good idea:  instead of raising the prices a bit, and risk losing some middle-class customers, let’s raise the prices a lot, and start selling to new rich upper-class customers.

 

It worked!  BMW went from being a slightly pricey middle-market bike to a fairly priced premium bike.  Advertisements reflected the brand’s new top quality image, amd sales increased.  I’m speculating here, but I think used bike prices went up, too, but stayed in reach for the former new-BMW buyers, and maybe kept some old bikes on the road.

Well, that’s great news!  The Magico Ultimates have had a big price drop, to only $354,000!  The last time I read about them was in an Absolute Sound review, when they cost $600,000, and there was only one or two pairs, with no assurance that they’d continue to be available.  The reviewer thought they sounded great, beyond anything he’d previously heard, so they’re on my win-a-big-lottery-prize purchase list.  For my win-a-medium-size-lottery-prize purchase list, the 7-Jubilee surround system is still at the top.

 

What, have none of you guys fantasized about owning some of the amazing speakers on the list?

Let's think about that..... should we take the luxury round-the-world cruise or place a down payment on the speaker wire from those guys.......  and not a one of those amps comes with a vijayjay
