Mbl 101 X-Treme Speakers Cost More Than a Ferrari

by


Ok, they only cost more than a “low-end” Ferrari, say an F430 — but at $180,000 for the system, these monstrous speakers certainly aren’t for the frugal.

MBL 101 X-Treme Speaker System

MBL’s 101 X-treme speaker system cranks out sound using a set of four custom built towers. Two of the towers feature pairs of the company’s proprietary omni-directional drivers (like the ones in their smaller 101E speakers), while the other two will rattle your bones with a stack of four 12-inch subwoofers.

Handcrafted from quality materials such as carbon fiber, aluminum, steel and wood, these mammoth speakers truly live up to their “extreme” name tag. The whole system is built-to-order and requires about a month to construct from start to finish.

    how does this compare the german physik gaudi II at $250 plus grand???? wouldn’t it be hard to even compare? either one is superior to the wilson speakers

    I just listened to this system in South Korea. It was at the world’s largest shopping mall (self tauted) called iMart. They weren’t minding the back room very well and I snuck in and turned it up. Remote was like 5 lb brick. Indescribable sound. It felt like I was the director of the orchestra. I now know nothing I will ever hear again will likely compare. After one 10 min sonata I was politely but with absolute certainty kicked out of the room – “Sir you have to go… NOW, please.” They didn’t even ask if I was interested. Guess one should ask before test driving a Ferrari. =D

    I was fortunate enough to listen to this set up in Hong Kong HiFi Show last 2007. We were able to sit at the front row. I must say, goose bumps were all over me all through out the orchestral track that the German guy played. Its like we were literally in front of an actual performing orchestra. The scale was a perfect 1:1 and the imaging was so coherent you could pin point on to the wall with your eyes closed where the exact instrument was being played. And then those immense subwoofers were tremendous, absolutely astounding. I liked it more than the macintosh set up on the other room.
