Intuitive Design Summits. Utterly phenomenal beyond all possible belief, and yet virtually unknown among even most "hard core" audiophiles. I've reviewed them here on Audiogon. I believe that they probably sound even better than the OLD, 3 box version of the Audio Physic Calderas, although I'd love to do a shootout someday on my system. I thought that they sounded better--by a considerable margin--than any of the following speakers, all of which sounded great in their own right: Totem Winds, Paradigm S8's, Paradigm Studio 100 V 3's (which I owned for about a year), Aerial 7B's, JM Lab Micro Utopia Be, Totem Tabu, and whatever the Induction Dynamics 3000 dollar monitor is called.
If you JUST buy the speakers and the Path Stand System, it's about 5000 dollars. If you get the monoblock amplifiers, which are built into the stands but which "float" within that enclosure so as to avoid resonance, then add about 4200 or 5100 dollars, depending on whether you decide on the "high current" version. Those amplifiers are probably better than the old Essence Emeralds, which were something like 10,000 or more, I believe.
