What would you do with a few million dollars? Be you the boat-buying, mansion-purchasing mogul or the super-cautious invest-it-all type, I doubt you'd have considered blowing the lot on a single set of "D&W Aural Pleasure" speakers from the UK's Hart Audio. Sure, they're made of 18ct gold and will make you hear [insert you favourite deity here], but it's a highly questionable way to convert one's sizeable liquid assets into a decidedly illiquid entity.
The Aural Pleasures come in three metals: gold, silver and bronze, costing £3 million ($4.52m), £200,000 ($301,161) and £40,000 ($60,232) respectively. Only a single gold model exists, while five silver and 99 bronze sets are available for the more budget-conscious.
Each unit is equipped with three drivers and adjustable chrome stands and according to the official product page, feature the following stats:
Sensitivity: 97dB, 1W at one metre Impedance: 5Ω Frequency range: 47Hz — 37kHz +\-4dB & 39Hz-47kHz +\- 10dB
So, ah, anyone interested in buying a pair? Something tells me we'd have a hard time convincing Hart to send us some for review.
