How much would you pay for a block of wood? Japanese stereo system company, Kripton, has released an audio block that retails for a steep price of $650, which, though surprising at first, seems more reasonable after learning that it reduces vibrations emitted from speaker systems and comes in teak as well as a variety of other woods.

The block is to be placed underneath speaker systems, and can support hundreds of pounds of equipment. It provides a great way to maximize your music-listening experience to get the highest-quality sound. The Kripton Audio Block is durable and eliminates unwanted vibrations that result in bad sound quality.

While there's certainly nothing wrong with wanting the most crisp and clear sound possible in your living room, it's impossible to ignore the fact that the wooden block is, in fact, more expensive than most speaker systems.
