    Randy, the big ones are way over 100K, and the reference model 260K, if I remember correctly. So, these ones are really outrageously expensive. But they’re supposed to be good. World famous producer Rick Rubin just got some for himself. Sent...

    How much do these speakers cost? How would a person go about listening to them? How would a person purchase them? How would a customer get service if required?

    I have heard both, albeit not in critical listening conditions. Either should drive the Sonettos OK, even though, at ¬87dB /W (4ohm), they're not the most sensitive models aroundl. My take on the Primare is as Mr Peabody's above. Personally, I...

    Hello Mr Mike.
    Sorry if I said something wrong ,since I'm new to this hobbies.

    Today I auditioned 30.2 with NAT SET monoblock. The voice was so full of body but I still miss some bass and I think it kinda rolled off in high. The equipment separation was good only some albums.

    Then I auditioned Diablo120 with their Mojos(different dealers). I'm amazed with the soundstage, image and how clean they produced them(is that mean they bright?), but instantly I miss the Midrange and full body voice feel of Harbeth and NAT.

    Will Diablo produce better midrange when pair with Harbeth??

    I still waiting to try Luxman next

    Thank You Sir.

    Mike, 12mths ago new mk2 (with copper heatsinks + upgrades) was €30000, the one in pics was €16000. I'd happily ask the world distributor if you wish. I have no financial interest at all in this. Met him 12ths ago in Paris, we got chatting. Lovely man, Italian, prefers speaking English to French even though he lives in Paris. Hah!
