So much money so poorly spent. Check out the final pic at the bottom for his fabulously "treated" room.

Does the $20,000 cable come with a life time supply of crack?

The best quote is that $100,000.00 will put you into "low-end territory". What.

I think his premise might be that will sound low end when you begin by re-purposing a listening room out of your old racquet ball court.

"And that’s the fallacy of blind A-B tests in audio"

I almost feel bad for someone who no longer believes in the authenticity of a scientific experiment

Edit:

I almost missed this one "You have to be careful with these woofers". It looks like he has a grand total of 300 watts in his system. Not just for the bass drivers, but total. I'm sorry, you dont' need to be careful with them.

“When you get into mega-expensive equipment, what you get is very much like wine. Say you usually drink $10-15 wines, and then you get a $25-30 bottle and it’s a little better,” he explains. “The problem is, if you start drinking those $30 bottles and go back to a $10 bottle, you notice the difference right away. And that’s the fallacy of blind A-B tests in audio — it is an acquired palette and it takes time to build it.”

What an absolute load of crap. You cant immediately taste the difference between two different wines if you're blindfolded? Wow. Obviously if there's a worthwhile difference it will be immediately noticed no matter what you're A-B testing. We wont even touch on the ignorance of not trying to find cheaper products (or wines) that are just as good as the more expensive varieties...

If you want to be a player in today’s hi-fi scene, Grellman says that $100,000 will put you in low-end territory. If you can spend between $200,000 and $300,000, you can buy a very, very good system. And for the best of the best? A million should do the trick. Of course, spending a boatload of money doesn’t always mean you get a great-sounding system.

This really sums up the problem with the entire hifi industry, you're just kidding yourself that your system is any good until it hits some magical milestone based on $$$ rolleyes.gif

Here is a video of an audiophile taking an blind A/B/X test and failing.


Fascinating.

Exactly, I can't even crack the paint seams that holds together the drywall at anything less than 130db @ 20hz; and I have way more than 2 15's and 300watts.

That is because $100k only buys them the arm (which is because they are being ripped off.) That's the only reason they need the $millions (to line the dealers pockets).

It does make me want to hear their system though, just to see for myself what I "might" be missing with my "low fi" system.
It also makes me want to force them to do a blind A/B/X test against a much cheaper system of a known/measurable sound quality, and not lift the curtain for a whole year after they selected the winner (which isn't theirs BTW)... just to make them break down and cry in joy at the saved money and their foolishness.

I "only" spent $15,000 on my electronics and $15,000 of my DIY speakers/subs and another $20,000 on my room. Pffft such low-fi garbage biggrin.gif

Indeed, looks like a welfare-shack in that regard, rather than a serious-audiophile's room.

The Sirius TT really is a fantastic piece of engineering, and if I was awash with loose cash, I'd love to have one. As well as a Nakamichi Dragon for the same reason. But not for a second do I believe the Sirius would be worth the difference in price over my SP10s purely in terms of SQ.

Sadly, he just comes across as a rich audiophile wanker in the rest of it.

eek.gif I guess then my 15k system is nothing more than a thrift shop find tongue.gif


Question for you guys: Does anyone else routinely have people think that we are all the type of audiophile in the article, that we only deem ultra high-priced gear as being worthy of using regardless of actual performance? It's guys like him that make me cringe a little when I'm asked if I'm an audiophile.

For $5458, you could get a 7 channel system of

For another $5-6000
A quad of these with 18kW's of amplification:

For another $2000...
7 SEOS kits & parts

For $12,000 that's one heck of a solid foundation. Well on your way to besting 99.999% of the AV population.

That is... *IF* I was to do it all over again from scratch with 2013 tech, based on what I know thus far.

Much beyond that and you'd have to start singing the "rip off" song (and should start second-guessing every decision made).

Then you'd just need to splash for the projector, room and a few miscellaneous things.

If nothing, that could be used as a "basic" Hi-Fi reference baseline, from which to expand upon and/or judge value-based vertical ascension.


This would be just for one room of course, if you want home automation and TV's in the shower with touch screens etc, expect to pay more, a lot more.
There's almost no limit to how "fancy" one can get with the wallet;
and there is always something better, now or... coming soon!!! wink.gif

I have a system similar to what you're talking about. Fronts and sides are SEOS-12/TD12M's. Then the other 6 speakers are SEOS12's with dual 6" woofers. Those are in the process. The clarity for music is amazing.

The "high-end" side of the industry is distasteful.

Of course even without excessive money fanaticism is possible. Obsessive compulsive disorder can be ugly and destructive even when shopping at the thrift store. Point in case look at people who horde junk. Anything that turns you into a nut-case, audio or otherwise......... should be avoided.

Solid words of truth...so many get wrapped around the axel of minute performance differences that are overwhelmed by poor room layout and acoustics.

lol that site is awesome, it's a joke site, right? It's pretty sad I have to question if it's real or not. lol, there's too many "good" reviews for it to be real I think. Those pebbles you tape to the speaker wire are hilarious.

Yes, and no. The site owners are in on the gag, but not all visitors are, and yes, some people do believe it's real and do buy their stuff. Sad to say, but the only difference between machinadynamica and sellers of most 'high end' gear is the ease with which the average person can tell that it's a joke, and that it's on them. rolleyes.gif

I personally would not spend $6K on electronics and amplification. a decent receiver is fully capable of driving high efficiency loudspeakers such as SEOS based ones. I am using HTPC with Denon 4311 and feel no need to upgrade.
LMS Ultras are nice to have but those w/ tighter budget and enough room can get very satisfying results for third of the price.
I think $12K maybe enough for a very competent audio system, good PJ in $2-3K range, AT screen and room treatments.

That's sort of my point. It's not just all the money spent on stupid things, it's all the actually important things that he ignored.

If I was spending six to seven figures on a listening room for stereo sound, it ought to look something like this:
