Check out some reviews from Vanns or see it at MirageSpeakers

In for 3!

It doesn’t say for a pair anywhere, and the limit is 2 per customer. Does the $899 get you one speaker or a pair?

1 speaker…yeah, it’s a bit pricey. Especially so close after Christmas.

That video makes them sound an awful lot like my computer’s speakers.

These are normally around $3,000 a piece. This is a fantastic deal. Keep in mind two things though. First, these are “omni” directional. Which means it tries to spread the sound in all directions. This is good for rear speakers or light use home theater fronts. These would be excellent 2 channel stereo music speakers. Second, these will be extremely heavy. Nearly 80 pounds a piece and they are very large. So keep in mind aesthetics and the missus. I don’t own these, but I’ve heard them and they are very, very good. A bit brighter than I’d care for, but you can tone that down if you’re careful.

Wow I wish I had the money. I would love a good 2 channel music setup.

But just looking at these specs, you are going to need a beast of an amp to power these. The reviews seem to confirm that.

Daaamn this is a good deal. My wife will throw me out with them on garbage day.
Damn wife.

While this is undoubtedly an amazing deal on these particular speakers I am amazed at how much they cost… what exactly do you do with them that is worth that price?

I don’t know what other folks are doing with speakers these days but I typically use them to transmit sounds of all kinds. Then I listen to said sounds with “ears”

I was lucky enough to snag a 5.1 system of the xbox Spherex speakers from Circuit City when they closed for $200. It has the same mirage omnistat technology. It has a pretty good sound stage and helps with a larger listening sweet spot.

Oh. I see what you did there. I’m wondering for those who spend this amount of a single speaker what makes it worth it for them? Or is it one of those gold plated iPhone sort of things?

there are components that are produced for a price tier, and with those, they frequently maximize the looks of those things in order to sell the product based on looks. Then there are components that are produced with how they sound as the main criteria, thus the internal component and quality are based on how they would reproduce sound…lets not forget lots more R&D going into these. There are also no holds barred components where any component, no matter the price, will be used for sound reproduction sake.

As price goes up, the quality of mfg also goes up. You can’t be expecting cardboard interiors on speakers costing 20x more than box store specials.

Welcome to the universe of “audiophiles.”

I’d be in for 2, but can’t afford the shipping.

For this price I expect an occasional hand job. And it had better stay on beat.
