Got a couple hundred grand for speakers? These are the ones you should get.

MBL will build only two systems of the 101 X-treme. Hugeness in size and sound. The system weighs a friggin' 3600 pounds. Like parking your car in your media room.

"The main tower houses a pair of mirror-imaged omni-directional Radialstrahler driver arrays, supported by an armature of acrylic, steel and wood while the lacquered woofer columns house a quartet each of proprietary 12-inch bass drivers," MBL said.

"As it demands huge amounts of amplifier power, the 101X-Treme System needs bi-amplification by four MBL 9011 Reference Series monoblock power amplifiers ($39,000 each) that deliver 480 watts of incessant power and 5,000 watts of peak power."

They are unusual looking, and promise to be significantly better that previous systems. Ya think?
