The best speakers in the whole wide world cost $5,400 a pair


Want to hear all the cymbal crashes you can eat? Treble dynamics? Vibrancy? Sure you do. Want to spend $5,400? Probably not, but if you have the cash and the inclination CNET’s Steve Guttenberg recommends the Magnepan 3.6/Rs, a pair of ribbon speakers that make your music sound like angels reaching orgasm in the deepest reaches of space.

I’m no audiophile but I’d like to learn what makes these worth $5,400 and my cheap speakers in the basement worth $50. I suppose I could contact the company, but I’d probably be turned away for insufficient appreciation.
