Joseph Audio RM7xl

Check out how Bob Deutsch took this same. exact. photo. (Almost.) Apparently, Jeff Joseph knows how to strike a pose.

Jeff told me that the RM7xls are the successors to the RM7si we wrote up for our 2002 Joint Loudspeaker of the Year — tied with the $41,500 Rockports.

The RM7xls feature new woofers, tweeters, and crossovers. Only the box remains the same.

"So," Jeff said, "I've raised the price from $1800 to $41,000/pair, to match the Rockports. But I throw in a BMW 7 Series."

We think he was joking.
