What do you do for a extreme value? Ask Don Lindich about what to do with only $1250:
For the money you simply can’t do better than an Arx (Chane) system. Even if you are willing to spend more I would say quite a large segment of the population would be thrilled with the sound to the point where spending more wouldn’t make sense. If you are a hardcore or budding A/V enthusiast with cash to spend, a serious movie and music buff, or want your speakers to have a finish like fine furniture you may be best served shopping upmarket, but most people will listen to these, say wow! and sit back and smile, satisfied. Arx brings exotic driver technology to an unheard-of price point and it is well implemented, at that. The wrapper is plain but the guts are amazing!
Drop by and let Don know how your system turned out.
