  • Holy Soundbar!

    All right, who's going to cough up the $6000 to see if it lives up to the hype?

    Seems to me that a product like this could work but you would almost need a dedicated room with the right shape for it to work properly. None of the rooms in my house would be any good for bouncing frequencies off of walls. I also wonder how narrow the sweet spot would be and if the sweet spot would be dictated by the angle of the speakers.

      I saw a review on this. The reviewer was thinking the same thing, but the creative exec, then took it out to the crowded main floor and played it for him. He was astonished that he was still enveloped with sound. Having said that, I am still with you killa, I can't see that.

        This brings an interesting thought to mind, what justifies the price? And what could one do with that budget, if you were to buy a reciever/separates and build your own speakers?

              The tricky part would be the 17 different processors. Who knows what is really going on there. I would bet that all the parts could be had for much less. Much of the price is in the "technology"

                Pretty cool, it even has cup holders!

                    A "Hell-Shattering" subwoofer??? "Bespoke" 1" tweeters??? Someone in the marketing department was clearly having fun here. However, I too shall pass. That thing is one processor failure from being a $6,000 coffee table decoration.

                      Great news. They dropped the price by $200! Only downside is it's still a pre-order so you'll have to wait.

                        400+ screws lol, that's more than any speaker I've built!

                        In all seriousness, the price tag doesn't actually look too terrible when you consider that it includes an AV processor and 1000W amplifier. Having surround sound without all those pesky surround speakers is of great benefit to a lot of people.
