Remember those cool-looking ceramic speakers I posted a little while back? Actual pre-orders are now up, and as expected, they’re expensive as hell. $495 will get you a great-looking set of limited edition, high-quality speakers (the first run will be around 200 sets) — but don’t throw away your hi-fi just yet.
The frequency response only goes down to 70Hz and while the speakers have 15 watts per channel, they won’t be shaking your paintings off the walls. However, the ceramic, wood, and cork makeup, combined with an amp based on the famous TA2024 suggest that the sound will be very good indeed.
I love the cabling. They’ll be available in November.
