Angelic Sound

Loudspeaker manufacturer Angel Sound from Las Vegas was a new name to me, but I was drawn into their room at CES by this striking-looking speaker, which resembles a flame. Called, according to my notes, the S8, the speaker uses ScanSpeak drivers, can be supplied in custom colors, and costs $180,000/pair. The system in use featured Angel Sound DAC, amplifier, and cables, with a C.E.C transport, but the adverse room acoustics prevented me from forming any real opinion of the speakers' sound quality.

That sure looks like an expensive speaker stuffed adversely into a corner in order to leave room for the electronics in the middle, rather than particularly adverse room acoutstics, per se.

It screams, "very expensive lifestyle product here" to me.

I see 3 cones and what looks like a dome tweeter - if that $180k isn't a mistake, it should be really interesting to hear about what's inside.
