Is it a sign of the times (of wallstreet greed, superwide income gaps and worldwide economic rifts) that companies can get away with charging $12,000 for small loudspeakers?

Of course, in a free market economy, we all have a right to boycott manufacturers who mark up prices in a way that is outrageously difficult to justify. Still, the audacity to produce such overpriced premium goods is testament to the fact that lunacy continues to reign in both the buyer and seller realms.

Unfortunately, This is easily misunderstood for a product such as these special very limited production loud speakers hand made in Switzerland.

This is an opportunity to experience these fine instruments of music reproduction.

There are of course limitless possibilities in price for most things, and people justify that depending on circumstances at hand. 

As a customer of this store I have found great music reproduction systems that fit my budget, which is far far below $12,000.

The idea is to experience music!
