The Avantegard Zero 1 isn't exactly what you'd call cheap; priced at $14,500, you could alternatively spend that kind of money to buy a car or make a down payment on a house. However, the price tag does come with a few perks. While these speakers won't make you coffee, the Zero 1's boast an active three way design with independent amplifiers for each driver. In addition, the speakers boast high quality 24-bit Burr Brown DACs, a multitude of digital inputs, and they connect together wirelessly in a master/slave configuration to reduce clutter.
