you cant buy jaguars anymore but they retailed for about $5K per pair Titians were extra.
ofcourse this is a lot cheaper than a pair of Infinity Reference Beta VI speakers that retailed for $85,000 per set.

Nononononono thats not the point moodswings, Jamo is not in the same league as what Navin is talking about.

The new Infinity Beta Home theatre set costs only about 5 Lacs for 7 speakers and a Subwoofer. The amp to go with it is about 2 lacs. Beta has become the entry level, however the Prelude and Intermezzo are super duper expensive. As is the highly acclaimed JBL Project K2. As Navin said, it is not uncommon to see (at the high end show in frankfurt) custom speakers that can cost close to US$200k.
But then this is

Sound is always a personal experience! You're building your personal car audio system, not someone else's. Sound not appreciated by a friend or car audio judge is not bad sound. You have to listen to your system, choose what you think sounds best!

No matter what fusseem says lol, there are no better components than the 606ce (at that price range!)

Hyderabad. OK, do one thing, pick up an autocar, look at the back for the hyderabad distributors number. Call and ask for the boss, Mr. Vohra. Tell him you're a friend of mine. He will guide you very easily then.
Happy listening
Sam,
I am tired of following up for one month now...with Cartronics in hyderabad...talked to Rajasekhar and then Ajay and almost neve got Mr Vohra...

they never have more than one JBL speaker in stock...and that is always the one (5 inch or something) that I dont want...being the distributors...I would presume that they would want to keep at least one piece of the entire GTO catalogue....

have started searching for alternates since I know I will never get JBLs from him...do you suggest another person that I call...my mob is 98850-30960...

Buffet,
Thanks for your feedback.
I have taken your matter most seriously. The results will show in the next few days. I request you to wait till then. All our distributors have flown off with our team to Berlin to attend the IFA. They return on the 6th. I wll then be able to speak to the right people. Someone will call you do not worry.
