The Best for $15,000?
Speakers were the Daedalus Audio Athena ($9950/pair) with Daedalus/Bolder speaker cable ($1500/8ft pair). Modwright Instruments supplied the KWI 200 ($5000) w/DAC ($1150) and phono ($350). Other interconnects were by WyWires, including the Silver Series Version 3 balanced ($1099) and Silver Series s/pidf cable ($499). The PC in the background was playing files via J River Media. Unheard were the VPI Classic 1 table ($2750) and Dynavector 20XH cartridge ($850). Racks were by Linkz Design. Apologies for the poorly focused photo. The sound was much clearer than this image.
