i'm sorry to burst your bubble lcsw but a $400 (per pair) sony speaker is not even close to being " the most advanced speaker ever " i looked them up they are just some small computer speakers with built in amps. ill bet the drivers (raw speakers) in them cost sony less than $10 each. at $200 each i think they are a little over priced, you should look into some logitech z series, or nht stuff. and just so you are aware there are high end small bookshelf speakers that cost many thousands of dollars each, the binding posts on them cost more than the sonys. the jbl proformance speakers that you wrote about are very nice - much better than anything sony makes but they are not even close to the best you can get. if you really wanted to find an expensive speaker that uses neo magnets to try and prove a point that we keep telling you makes no sense than you should have used my examples - those raw drivers are used in some speakers that cost more than some peoples house. if you want to get a better idea of what an expensive "high end" speaker looks like look up wilsonaudio.com and magico.net. i will say this one more time and then im done with this (cant help it want to help people) a magnet that uses neo is fine it can work well when space or weight is an issue (such as tiny computer speakers that you also have to put an amp and crossover in) but in the end the magnet is just a part in a complex system, just like spark plugs are a small part of a car. would you give me $75,000 for a car if all i told you was it had nice spark plugs?
Close your eyes and hear the truth!
