Goldmund's $300,000 speaker system

The maker of the $17,000 Blu-ray media player does it again.


We have nothing but respect for Steve "Audiophiliac" Guttenberg and don't wish to perpetuate any stereotypes about like enthusiasts, but we can't resist mentioning the latest loudspeakers from Goldmund.

This, you may recall, is the same outfit that recently upgraded its $17,000 " Eidos 20 " media player for Blu-ray. But the price of that DVD box is peanuts compared with its "Epilogue Speaker System," which goes for a cool $300,000, accoring to Newlaunches. That, by the way, was the estimated starting price for installations in Goldmund's palatial " Media Room " a few months ago.

We do appreciate the geometric design of the system, which would look perfectly natural on display at any modern art museum. As for the cost, perhaps it's just the price one must pay for high-end speakers that don't look like alien beings .
