        Been there done that!

        A lot of the "extreme" high-end Japanese gear LOOKS wonderful, but is sonically disappointing, I'm not sure why.

        When Jon and I owned "The Boulder Sound Gallery", we were able to audition TONS of this "designer audio jewelry". Unfortunately most of the time it wasn't as good as most of the lesser priced high-end American gear. Meaning stuff like Levinson, Krell, Wadia, Jeff Roland Design, etc, etc.

        There are some smaller Japanese companies like Stax, Audio Note, etc, that DO make gear that has astounding sound.

        It's alway been curious that the huge companies can't make gear that sounds as good as the much smaller narrowly focused companies. Perhaps the "designed by committee" factor is the real issue

          I was just going to say, for recievers Denon makes nice stuff, but when it comes to seperates I don't know of any large japanese companies that come close to any of the american/ british companies...large of small...even at $40.000...but, they do look sweet. Just not 40 grand sweet

            I've actually seen these before. I saw the entire pictured system at a dotcom's house in Austin. He was a huge Denon before making it big, and had to own the set when his ship came in. He built a room around them separate from his house and ran them with a set of Sonus Faber Amati Homage's. Also had some grand sub; the name of which is lost to me. It sounded wonderful at the time. But I have little to compare it with being that I exist many pay levels down the foodchain. Must be nice.
