Anyone ever heard of this speaker manufacturer ?

I recently read about a custom speaker manufacturer in Salt Lake City called Chateau Research. Apparently they don't advertize and sell by word-of-mouth only. They seem to be very popular in Japan.I would appreciate any comments.
They are excellent speakers--I reviewed a pair for BFS some years ago.Bob
They've been around for a few years. Made some decent impressions at CES and other shows.
