Would You Buy $180,000 Speakers?

Assuming you had all of the money in the world, would you spend it on these speakers? For the price to feed a small family for years, you could have MBL’s X-treme Speakers.

Born Rich says that these units are “perfectly balanced acoustically brilliant sound.” For $180,000, they’d better be.

Standing six feet tall, the features include four proprietary 12-inch subwoofers and two omni-directional drivers: one is suspended and inverted above the other, mounted on a massive platform made from carbon fiber, aluminum, steel, acrylic, and wood. For that price, it should be made from tiny baby ivory-billed woodpeckers.

Start saving; they will be officially launched at January’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. How many showgirls could you get for that price?
