What's interesting is he said he could still get brand new ones and the can still make them. Cost $9,000.00 each. I thought they were discontinued? Hmmmm.
Hmmm, indeed. Very interesting.
Patrick, would you please shed some light on this? Is this a case of a misinformed dealer or has something changed recently with respect to the discontinued HTM1D? You have certainly made it clear in posts here that B&W had absolutely zero interest in doing a speaker like this again and you have never given any indication it could be custom ordered.
Given how bad I would like one in current D2 spec I would gladly find a way of handling the $9,000.
