I seriously doubt anyone here could afford this but it is amusing. For all those that laugh at Sony for the garbage they build. This is what they are truly capable of.

I spent 2 years in the Philippines back in 2006-2008 and I have seen a lot of electronics from Japan and other foreign places that we just dont have, its funny but over there those sony xplod subs you laugh at in walmart that post 1100watts rms over there they actually do have them that do handle the 1100watts rms, the stuff that gets shipped to the use from sony and some of these other major companies is like the junk that they make and they seem to keep the good stuff. http://www.rapidradio.co.nz/Product-Catalogue(99).asp?ProductCategoryId=47&ProductId=100 . . . damn cant find exactly what I was looking for, this is good not a sub but still good and i have never seen it in the us have you?http://www.rapidradio.co.nz/Product-Catalogue(99).asp?ProductCategoryId=1&ProductId=845 japan needs to stop being tight with their skylines and their other good shit....

I liked their older all-metal tuners(3 sets of rca's, NO speaker outs!) And their older silver amps.
'Way back when' they made good external signal stuff, crossovers, they even had a 31 band eq that would hang with an Audiocontrol any day.
When they marketed the little plastic cheapy HU's to Wal mart was when they started making entry level stuff...
There are a few 'diamond in the rough' explodes even. I know the 333 would actually push 12's hard. About like a 2x100 O/S amp...

That sony system is a reminder of what a corporate giant like Sony is capabale of. I can only dream of something like that. I will one day own the prized specimen by Panasonic.

Dude, where do we draw the line? A vehicle, or should I say that modern recordings do not deserve to play on equipment like that.

I agree.. OS recordings that had the warmth are where it is at

I am guilty of that. I listen to everything from the 70's to today's new music.

Everything that was recorded in the sixties and for most of the seventies(yeah, I'm an old fart) was recorded through tubed gear. That's why most of the music from that period sounds so warm and has such a nice midrange. Solid state reared its head in the early seventies but most producers stuck with tubes. Then along came digital and everyone switched to solid state. Now some of the better recordings and remasters are being done with tubed gear once again and are done with less compression. Compression is really the cause of the crappy distorted sound that is so prevalent nowadays. Let's see how loud we can make it no matter how bad it sounds kind of thing. Listen to Steely Dan's Aja and Gaucho or Donald Fagen's The Nightfly if you want to hear wonderful sounding uncompressed recordings. Anything by Larry Carlton sounds great. I realize most of you guys probably don't like smooth jazz or Steely Dan,I hope I'm wrong 'cause some of its really good, but that's where you'll find really great sounding recordings. I love the sound of tubes but also prefer the convenience of solid state amps, tubed amps can be a pain to maintain. I run solid state amps in my home two channel rig with a tubed line stage buffer for the digital end and a tubed phono stage with my turntable. Best of both worlds and they sound pretty darn good to boot. I get the speed and punch of solid state and the warmth and fluidity of tubes all in one package.

I am not old but I like the nostalgic appearance of tube equipment. it has a old school classic look, a sort of rare appeal to it. I know that DD is still making an old school style Tube amp, well they were not to long ago, sometimes old technology is better than new technology. like driving a classic car, say a 57 chevy now one of those is in no way modern or very efficient or engineered for racing or economy or anything of the sort but come on everyone wants to have one. thumbs up for old school tubes??? and 57 chevys....
