Sexy but over $4k after taxes?  I’m sorry but I can get an amazing tv plus an awesome soundsystem for that much, with money left over for blu-ray discs.  However, if money was no object I’d get one really fast if it sounds half as good as it looks

It does look very nice and I’m sure it sounds great, but what happens when Apple puts out a new generation iPod rendering the system incompatible?  You’d have to look at it and realize you should have done what DJRags suggested + buy an apple cable/dock and it’d likely last you longer.

This would look great in a $3 million Tribeca loft, but honestly I think most people looking to spend $4k on HT audio would want at least 5.1 surround sound and a lot more flexibility and options.

@2: That’s basically what’s happened to me with my 2y.o. 2006 GenevaLabs Model L speaker: it doesn’t work with the iPhone without a nag screen and it won’t charge any of the 2008 model iPods (or iPhone 3G) save for the Classic.  Granted this isn’t GenevaLabs’ fault, but just goes to show you that iPod accessories aren’t a good long term investment (unless you plan on using your current iPod long term and not upgrade to future models).  If I spent $4k on a HT system, I would want it to last me 10 years or so, I think or at the very least 5.  Maybe Apple won’t break any more accessory compatibilities in the next 5 years, but given their track record over the past 3 years or so, I wouldn’t bet any money on it (top-mounted remote port, FireWire sync, video out, FireWire charging, Made for iPod vs. Made for iPhone, etc.).

But yeah I love the looks and I’m sure the sound is great and build quality is excellent.  If I won the lottery, I’d probably get one in a heartbeat.
