    Rear view of audiophile ghetto blaster

    This 80 watts per channel beast with built-in subwoofer is not portable unless you've got a very long extension cord. I'm babysitting it today while it's owners attend the Master's. I understand the price has dropped to $2200 on Amazon as Ferrari doesn't want their logo on it anymore. It sounds pretty good, sorta like my old Wave radio on steroids. Does it compete with a good t-amp and Parts Express speakers? Not in my book. Please explain why there's a market for this animal?

    Bill, I read some consumer reviews of The Meridian F80 on Amazon. One guy said he planned to buy one for each room. Some folks have more dollars than sense.

    Well, what's the gold standard after all? Let's say you're a person who thinks it's the Bose Wave Music System ...

    When I was in Harrods in London, they were selling little kids bikes with training wheels for around $1400,

    Yep, they were Ferrari bicycles.
