Best speakers around $130k?
Why spend $130K when $33K might do? Why spend $33K when $3.3K will do? Conspicuous consumption, bad for the planet. And. Odd price point. Something else afoot. I’ll decline.

How to tame a bright system?
@snarfie23  I am guessing that covering the walls and ceiling - completely - with an acoustically deadening material is optimal? Yes or no?

I am suspicious as a general rule. But in this scenario, as long as you are being paid securely up front, and provide no personal info, it's on him to get your speakers shipped securely for the final leg of the transit.  
How do you know when a stereo sounds good?
"How do you determine that you enjoy listening to music through your stereo?" How do I know when I am enjoying anything? Let me start by checking my pulse to see if I'm alive. ​​​​​​​Geez, I am not a therapist.  
Bands/artists you never got to see live in their heyday, but would've liked to.
