Ledoux for <$5000?
By Robert Deutsch Posted: Apr 2, 2014
Ledoux Acoustique speakers are handcrafted in Magog, Quebec, each speaker signed by designer Patrice Ledoux. The Ledoux Concert 5 ($1595/pair) formed the centerpiece of a sub-$5000 system that included a Ledoux Gaia-10 subwoofer ($1950, Cambridge 651A integrated amp ($795), and Blue Circle BC6000Si power line conditioner ($1295). If you do the math, you'll see that the total is $5635. I questioned M. Ledoux about this discrepancy, and he said that this system could be sold as a "show special" at $5000.
Also, there was no source component included in the price. The system actually sounded quite nice with a Cambridge Audio CD player in the system, but I doubt if they would throw that in for the $5000.
