After 2.20 min, you can hear live sound from Line Magnetic LM3 speakers.
The regular price of this speaker is more than 20k$..
If I order within 2 days using Alibaba Anniversary sale, then I can get this one at 17k$ including shipping and WA State tax.
What is your opinion on this speaker after Youtube playing?
If I could afford to spend that much on speakers I could likely afford a trip out of town to an authorized dealer for an audition. So no, I would not buy them blind. thomaskong If you want to visit Guangzhou, China, you have to get entry Visa which will take more than a week.
Then I will miss the Alibaba Anniversary sale.
One or two hours of listening at strange setting will not work.
If you are serious, you had better do home audition which will not be easy since this speakers are huge.
I am curious whether I can tame this horn speakers with my cables and other tools to the voicing that I want.
Now doofus is having a hard time resisting an impulse purchase of this bargain priced steampunk monstrosity.
This one is on sale on 60K$.

I did actually learn something from that thread. I never knew before that there exists a sub-set of moneyed audiophools who lionize cinema speakers and amps from *1926* as the be-all and end-all of audio technology. Just when I thought I knew the extent of their delusional thinking, I can still be surprised.
This little exchange made me laugh because there is no judgement there - ever. No no no no.
Why not donate 17k to a charity since you already have a better system than most any audiophile could dream to have? You could put dozens of kids through school for a year in a developing country. Just a thought.
Well, what if he is already donating similar amounts to charity?
Truthfully, I donate a few thousand bucks per year to several charities but do not spend a few thousand bucks per year on audio equipment—most years, anyway. It’s all about personal priorities and financial planning. I’m not sure it’s the right topic for this thread.
It’s not the topic of the thread. Just a thought, and an important one, I’d say. I’m not judging any individual’s priorities but my own.
Nice redirection. However the fact that you brought this up, out of the blue, in a thread which has nothing to do with this subject tells a different story...
This is a music and audio forum. Let us keep our judgments about other people's priorities who happen to have more than us out of such discussions please.
