The only reason I instantly laughed when I saw the speakers, was because of what Sony has done to their own reputation over the last 10 to 15 years. So, I was, indeed, laughing at the brand, but it's deserved. Sony has pretty much, focused only on TVs for the last 15 years. They've kinda made junky products as far as everything else goes.
And most people would agree that when it comes to speakers, in a home theater application, there is a point where you start to see diminishing returns, and 10,000 dollars, just for towers, is starting to get near that area, no matter what the brand.
It just looks funny, when a company like Sony, who has done nothing in the audio world for the last 15 years, all of a sudden comes out with tower speakers and says they want 10,000 dollars for them, having done nothing to prove themselves in the audio world, in recent memory. Now, I haven't heard the speakers, obviously. But, you have to admit, that it is a little ridiculous.
