Survived auditioning speakers.. whew, almost bought them...

So I decided to wander over to my local dealer just to have a look.
So I listen to a pair of speakers, (sadly I had none of my own CDs.. All he had was Diana Krall etc, LOL) I left but realized I had a whole pile of CDs I copied to use in my car.
So I go back in, CDRs in hand.
Well, I have to say i liked the speakers somewhat (enough to seriously think do I want these?). ($12,000)
but the low frequency response was worse than usual, and I think I would get tired of them too soon for $12,000 of fun.
Plus they only come in the color black. And they are made in China.(plus now owned in China? Quad)
The China thing bothers me enough to just say no.
I can buy an American made speaker for about the same price
Magnepan 20.7 ($14,000)

Anyway, close call. Go in to look around and almost walk out with a bill for $12,000. Go figure.
