Well, considering just a pair of WAVAC 833 SET monoblocks goes for $325,000, and you still need a preamp for them, actually not too bad at all :laugh:

That's cheap, a lot of guys have $300k + systems in the U.K.

...but I adhere to the laws of diminishing returns well before those prices lol.

I'm a broke-*** college student, $5k is approaching my point of diminishing returns at the moment :p:

Lol, if I get my crap done I'm estimating about a total of $2-2.5k for everything.... not bad when it all would have cost like $3,600 for the equip. minus the speakers.

I didn't read the thread, but I thought he's also making this for business?
/speculating

Maybe if he's a HT designer, by showing off his creation he lures clients,
perhaps it will pay for itself one day ?

Usually I have something evil and clever to say about this, but I don't know
what to think as I didn't even bother analyzing all those pieces.

It seems though... he is plagued by many audio and video demons, perhaps
this video demons are greater now over the audio one. Previously he used
an Infinity line array and now he's downgraded to a normal sound system.

I'm in the same position.

If I was building a brand new home in todays world I would definitely have something like that - perhaps not to that extent, but something similar (I guess the go big or go home / do it right or don't bother doing it at all comes into play when you're building a brand new home, though).

I tell ya ... if I had an unfinished spare room somewhere in my home right now ... :D
