They don't mention the price on that Aston Martin but the most glaring omission is MPG.That's a big factor in my purchasing decisions.I think I'll drop them a line.
hello,, so looking on the used gear site ,, an amp that sold for 126,000.00 .. wowww. You can buy it for 50 large used. What makes an amp valued or worth that much ? How would it sound next to a 10,000.00 dollar amp ? I guess it would demand same associated gear to work the best ? Just thinking out loud....
The uber wealthy like to buy exclusive, even 1-off things, that no other wealthy person can have. This has gone on ages. One of the latest examples I've recently read about was this 1 of 1 Aston Martin.https://gtspirit.com/2020/09/05/aston-martin-victor/
great investment though ! Ha. Good lord what a crazy world. 250 million dollar yacht parked just off shore the other day. The 1% just keep getting it all.
A few years ago I was sitting in the VPI room at CAF with Harry Weisfeld of VPI and Johan Corg of KEF listening to a pair of KEF $220k prototypes and Harry's prototype direct drive table at $85k with a $27k cartridge. The whole thing sounded fabulous and was driven by a $5k Odyssey amp! So it's not universally about price.
Good audio manufacturers have deep R&D and in-house manufacturing resources, relatively long histories, and don't charge those kind of prices.Take power amps for example. The current state of the art is represented by Benchmark AHB2, Orchard Audio BOSC, and Purifi 1ET400A. All are efficient, all rated 100 wpc at 8 ohms or better, all are small, and all cost $3000 USD or less. No need to look further.
