Russian President Medvedev's $200K Sound System | Luxury Insider

 

Come on guys, you need to fund a new audio system for your President! Can't let the Russians win this one!

 

Glad to see he's buying British, Looks like Avid TT, Naim CD ( although he could have gone a bit further up the range for the latter). Has a reel to reel too.

I'm impressed: not by the turntable system, but by the fact that this post has been up for 4 hours and hasn't elicted all sorts of OT political comments. Maybe we are making progress. :)

Main setup: Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>QuietPC Low Noise Server>Roon (Audiolense DRC)>Stack Audio Link II>Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.

All absolute statements about audio are false :)

Thought he would need something more mobile for the golf course, maybe it's for his spin doctors.

 

Anyone know what the record is beside the sub ? Handles Watergate music, Beethovens take the fifth, the Smiths "at this point what difference does it make" or was that by the Clintones ?

 

At least he can now say in all honesty that his record in office stands up by itself.

That's one of the best posts I've read in recent memory. Thanks for towing the line between political drivel and creative use of language and imagination. Good stuff, no matter where one falls on the political spectrum.

the one weird thing about that is the absence of outlets/cables/cords etc. either that's completely staged or a killer installation.

So this libtard president is using a foreign turntable. In the White House? Is this a way to make America great again?

 

And then look at those Asian-looking vases below it.

 

This is probably all the works by some foreign secret service! Or a Globalization-lover conspiracy!

I think these are Architectural Digest shots. It is not unusual for AD to bring in visual candy to their pictures. So... my guess is that the TT, records, subwoofer were "added" to give the picture interesting detail.

Fully in keeping with the present election, there is little truth in anything or anyone in or seeking the White House; it is all staged to make us see what we are looking for. I just hadn't realized that the audiophile community was large enough to be worth pandering to. But I guess this is a pitch to both the millenial retro group and the older guys who still have turntables part of the electorate.

If Obama really wanted to pander to the audiophile community he would pose in front of his turntable system, masquerading as a big bellied, pathetic 65+ year old hunched over bald or balding white guy with his head resting on his palm listening to some "nuance of his system" that he is too old to hear.

It looks staged to me. The half dozen LPs leaning against the subwoofer, not a trace of a cable visible, ...

 

Is this a "public" area of the White house (where the president works)? I don't think anyone has any time there to play a record.
