Oswald Mills.  Price is not published.  Somewhere north of 300K, I would guess.

Never been there, but knew a guy who owned a pair (not those Kimo pictured) that he'd received in trade for lighting he'd installed in the mill. Located very close to where I used to live.

Nice craftsmanship, debatable aesthetic virtues, poor technical design, exclusivity, massive price tag.

I think the craftsmanship and exclusivity are what sells these speakers more than anything. Nothing wrong with that, it's just not my cup of tea.

Here's my friend who had the Oswalds Mill speakers in his workshop. They sounded nice.

Edit: Perhaps a nice chandelier for Chez Style?

Nice works but I'm more of a Chihuly fan, if you have high enough ceilings

Hey, Frank! As I recall you sort of live in the boonies of the Blue Mountains of Oz. I certainly hope that you are nowhere near all the wild fires threatening much of the east coast down there, and that you aren’t in any danger. We’d hate for anything untoward to happen to you or yours.....

Thanks. Never heard of them before. I did a quick Google and that model is called OMA Monarch, and costs £60,000. I didn't bother hunting down the centre stack too. Pricy stuff.

I imagine I don't even live in the right neighborhood for OM speakers.  Probably not even the right City.  I am intrigued by the monitor, however, I doubt I could handle the sticker shock.  If I did buy them, I would want to make sure they were well lit.

 

Basically, I would need to design my house around my audio system.

What's that saying?  Children should be seen but not heard.  Not that I subscribe to that...............................

Newfies are great - never seen one in B & W before.

 

 

You don't need to design your entire house around the speakers - just one big room.
