Bargain speakers for $24,400 (each)

Get 'em while supplies last

Even luxury media equipment makers know that people have budgets, including Cabasse. The French speaker specialist has been the subject of some mockery (we can't imagine why) for such offerings as its $150,000 "La Sphere" line, so it's apparently decided to come up with some products that are a little closer to Earth.

The "Karissima" full-range speaker, for example, is priced at a mere $24,400. Each.

These are no ordinary tweeters and woofers, of course. They come in your choice of "Wild Cherry, Santos or Wenge finishes," according to Electronic House, as well as some features like "TriCentric technology for pinpoint imaging, smooth off-axis dispersion and seamless frequency response."

We suspect that the real reason for the cost is weight: 154 pounds. Perhaps Cabasse has begun charging by the ounce.
