$100,000 speakers or Transformers?

Could they be both?

YG Acoustics

Some insightful readers have gleaned that Crave has, on occasion, shown a weakness for unorthodox or expensive loudspeakers (preferably both ).

The latest "Voyager" model from YG Acoustics fits that profile to a tee, with a Star Wars-esque design and a price of $100,000 per pair, not to mention that they tip the scales at a full 200 pounds apiece. But what really attracted us to these cast-aluminum monsters was the description from Audio Junkies: "If the YG Acoustics Voyager loudspeakers appeared in the new Transformers movie, I would expect them to promptly turn into a robot and kick someone's ass." We couldn't have said it better ourselves.

This is about as close as we'll ever get to them anyway, as AJ says they're "available only to music and film 'industry leaders.'" And here we were just about to pull out our Visa. Oh well.

(Thanks, Lukas)
