    The $32K speaker in question: http://alta-audio.com/collection/titanium-hestia/
    If you look up Dunlavy or Duntech speakers you will find thr Vifa XT 25 in several $ 20, 000.00 dollar plus speakers.

      Actually, back in the day before it was purchased by Tymphany and went to China, the XT25 from Vifa and made in Denmark was about $55. This would have been about 2006/2007. The Chinese manufacturing under the Peerless (V-Line) badge dropped the price to 20-30 clams.
