  4. Hmmmmmm.......what are these??? Stands for plants? Yet another upgrade for the Death Star!!! Vandersteen Bedrock granite bases for my Vandersteen Seven speakers... These special bases are fabricated from nine different types (!) of granite glued together with specifically chosen adhesive to dampen vibrations and to add mass to the Seven speaker cabinet.

Used in his Yardbirds and Led Zeppelin days including the debut Led Zeppelin LP. Limited to 75 and hand signed by Jimmy Page himself...

  9. GREAT power conditioner and power cables!!! Hear more! You don't know what you've been missing!!!
  10. INSANE bargain price. Drivers made by Thiel - designed by the late great Jim Thiel (RIP). These speakers are neutral and play what they are fed. Time and phase coherent to boot. GLWTS
  11. When I was in Singapore some of the guys just dropped a digit from the price (!) if their Mrs asked them what their new toy was worth!!!!
