The ultimate speaker system: $1 million

Only one of its kind ever made

HigherFi

For some time now, we've been playing a little game to see how high speaker prices would go. Most have come in around the level of the "Vivid Audio B1 Loudspeakers" ($13,500 a pair) or the "Karissima" line ($24,400 each), but some have reached as high as the $140,000 or $150,000 (the "Muon" and "La Sphere," respectively).

Chump change.

Meet the "Grand Enigma," a set that tops a list of "the world's most expensive speakers" compiled by HigherFi. The price? A cool $1 million.

Shiny Shiny notes that speakers, made by Netherlands-based Kharma, comprise the only set of its kind ever made, so no need to hunt around for order information. But there's another set from Wisdom Audio that's a steal at $600,000.
