The Magnificent Magnepan 30.7 speakers....wait, I don’t like planars!
With the sheer size of these speakers, very few people have the room to accommodate them. I’d hate to see them crammed into a room that’s too small to maximize their potential.....but they’ll fit nicely in my room though.;-) 
New D'Agostino Monoblocks...$250,000
Friends and guests ask me what my rig costs all the time.  I've never told anyone what my stuff costs.  Anyone that knows audio already knows or have a pretty good idea what it costs, and won't be taken aback.Anyone who doesn't know audio wouldn't...

LP, ...at 485 pounds, it’s going to take 6 men to move that thing around in a room.

.slimkikins5...If a guy can afford $250k for a pair of amps, he really doesn't need to worry about resale value.  Guys that buy Rolls Royces don't worry about resale value, because they already know that in 10 years, the car will be worth one eigh...

I haven’t heard them, but they seem ideal if you have a need for power and if your speakers have a demanding load. I read a review somewhere that they are rock solid stable down to 2 ohms.Yes, I would buy them. 
From Four 12 inch Woofers To Eight 12 inch Woofers, Will I Get Deeper Bass Or More Bass?
68pete, according to all the posts I’ve read here on the ’Gon regarding integrating subs into full range speakers seamlessly, it sounds damn near impossible.  This is for 2-channel listening only...this is not a home theater application. 
From Four 12 inch Woofers To Eight 12 inch Woofers, Will I Get Deeper Bass Or More Bass?
jafant...I'm very familiar with the Kappa 9 and the power that they require.  That won't be a problem.  I still have the Pass amps.The whole reason for this approach is to get more bass in the room to emulate the Infinity IRS Beta speakers that I ...

Charles1dad, my current trumpet faves are Lee Morgan, Freddie Hubbard, Blue Mitchell, early 60's Donald Byrd and of course Miles.  The catalogs of just this handful of guys as leaders and as sidemen is exhaustive.I've heard of Kenny Dorham and Fat...

Charles1dad, I work from home and have jazz in the background all day.  I've listened to jazz all my adult life...a lot.  I've heard a LOT of jazz.  In the beginning my only exposure to jazz was jazz radio.  If the DJ's didn't play it, I didn't he...
