Speakers to hang on to for LIFE

Willl you spend over $5000.00 for speakers?
In 1991 I bought a pair of Apogee Duetta Signatures @ $4,000. At the time it was the most money, by far, I had spent on anything for music playback. I haven't even considered looking at or listening to anything else since.
