Loudspeakers have the golden touch

The Ascendo System ZF3 gold edition loudspeakers are cast from the actual precious metal.

These speakers are worth their weight in gold--literally. That's because the Ascendo System ZF3 gold edition loudspeakers are cast from the actual precious metal. If the shade is too "glaring" for you, the German company is also offering a choice of silver, platinum or glossy piano lacquer.

While there are no official specs, it's pretty obvious that these floor standers feature a two-way design with a woofer and what seems to be a ribbon horn tweeter--the latter is renowned for extended treble reproduction. On the other end of the spectrum, there's a port (black hole in front) for enhancing low-frequency bass.

A quick check on the company's Web site did not reveal any international distributors, but you can always drop them an e-mail for a quote. And do let us know if they reply with the pricing. We'd love to find out what the damage comes to.
