Anyone heard these $20,000 speakers

Recommended Posts

Fake Focals, eh?  No, I haven't heard them - or of them, for that matter.  Plus the price seems to have jumped to $300,000.

 

Good luck finding anyone who has heard them, Fred.

Has focal drivers that's for sure. Looks like Focals.

It's a bit like buying a $1M painting from an unknown person, out of a car boot, in a pub carpark. But hey, if it's good enough for a Supreme Court Judge...

To be safe, I keep my limit at $200K.  It’s always better to be safe than sorry.

Sorry, I misread the ad, it is indeed $300,000 but an optional extra $20,000 if you want the active crossover and amps. 

 

Hmmm decisions, decisions, do i get the matching xovers and amps or save $20K and just wing it on my $300,000 boxes and drivers?

The first 2 photos look like they have Focal drivers , but the ad also says "*PLEASE NOTE FIRST TWO 3D PHOTOS ARE FOR DEMONSTRATION PURPOSES ONLY AND MAY NOT REPRESENT THE ACTUAL PRODUCT IN DETAIL*

The other 2 photos appear to be of the actual speakers and look more like typical pro audio drivers with a ribbon tweeter (IMHO).

Personally I think he may need to drop 2 zeros from the price

The ad states they use Beyma drivers. But $300,000 + , that's a leap of faith or ? If I ever saw one.

Those are so badly photoshopped, it took me a 2 second look to spot fake.

 

Honestly, take the Photoshopped test, I think it's needed.

TIP: Unnatural shadows and reflections are the biggest give away.

Do you mean the first two photos or the second two?

The first two.

All those photos need is Donald Trump standing next to them to complete the unbelievability of the photos, and subsequently the whole ad, even if the latter photos are legit.

Where are they based? Nigeria?

Does this not compute?
