UPS shipping to the US is quoted at $1000 LOL. These components are HEAVY. This is going to be a hot auction - I wonder if it will go over $10,000.

Did you see the movie remake of "The Italian Job" where the character played by Seth Green talks about buying a stereo with his share of the loot that could literally blow the clothes off of a young lady...I think this might be what he wanted:eek:. I love Yamaha components...top notch.

That thing is a beast. Makes my little ol' Marantz 2240 look like a transistor radio

I have a Yamaha MX-1000u, but it is a pale little sister to this...

When I first saw the auction it was $1200 - and I was looking for the "Buy It Now" button. It's up to $7200 and there are four days to go, LOL! Wonder if it will sell for more than the original retail?

Nice @Bonsai Nut I'm still using my 1988-89 system nearly daily.
The mains, amp, and now sub woofer all made in USA, some of which is in post 63 here...
It's integrated into a newer surround system. The new AVR allows you to use the old amp and pre-amp
to drive the mains while the AVR's on board amp powers all the other speakers in the surround system.
Uses an on board computer to set delays to all speakers to get proper timing of signal from each respective channel
to the listener. Pretty cool, which I learned how from another forum :)
The Acoustat electrostatics were made in Tempe, AZ by Rockford Fosgate no longer in business as well as Carver!
The subwoofer weighs in something like 109 lbs shipped. Highly accurate versus vented
I think it's really cool to integrate old with the new like this. Amazing what they can do nowadays.
