The Pierre Gabriel speakers usually demonstrated at the Montreal show are normally humongous affairs, and, with partnering equipment by Jadis, the system price may leave you with little change from a $500k bill. I was surprised, then, to see a relatively modest-lookingbut still very-good-soundingspeakers playing in the Pierre Gabriel/Jadis room.
The speaker was the 15th Anniversary "Presents" (if my notes are correct), priced at CN$7500/pair. Alas, if you want the accompanying Jadis electronics and digital front end, you have to be prepared to shell out $25,000 for the preamp, $25,000 for the amps, $20,000 for the CD transport...well, you get the idea.
