    I'd be weary of any audiophile snake-oil and just buy a good pair of studio monitors for accurate sound reproduction. Though, I figure if you're spending that kind of money on speakers sound quality is not what you're concerned with.

    It's a cool video (I generally find Linus Tech Tips videos to be enjoyable) but when do the diminishing returns reach a point where you're basically throwing money away just to say you have a $100,00 pair of speakers?

    Are a pair of $100,000 speakers 10x better than a pair of $10,000 speakers? Is a $10,000 pair of speakers 10x better than a $1,000 pair of speakers?

    I turned an extra bedroom into a theater room and our 7.1 surround sound setup only cost about $700 (receiver included). I honestly can't imagine that a $10,000 setup would sound that much better than what I have.

      It sounds like diminishing returns to me, differences becoming smaller with every 0 added. Difference between $100 and $1000 setup? Probably big. $10k and $100k? Eh.

      After you get out of the normal consumer range for speakers and such, it'd be better to spend more money on the space than expensive speakers.

    I just watched this last night. Linus doesn't really know much about electronics manufacturing, but I think he managed to do pretty well in spite of it. But I would have preferred if a professional was there to explain some of the processes.
