    Is just me or is Meridian trying to make the most expensive speakers they possibly can?
    What's next? Solid gold cabinets and diamond woofers?

    Crybabies in the comments: this was just how a PCB is made!
    Actual video: starts with a finished PCB and begins soldering components to it.
    🤦🏼‍♂️ Don't complain if you can't even identify what you're watching.

    "Far more workstations than people to use them," so those $100,000 speakers are actually $1,000 with a $99,000 mark-up to pay for those extra, unused pieces of equipment.

    Audio files are only so good. You think there would be point where it doesn't matter how nice a speaker is if the audio file is meh

    hi, I'm in the industry of speakers, and all that technology about biamplification is 30 y old. used in pro rigs and high quality arrays, wich costs up to 10k the piece. also this isnt worth 100.000k.

    Hey Linus, this is a video request.
    I had watched this Clip-Share video some days ago:
    It is a DIY video where a guy teaches us how to replace DVD Drive of a laptop with an SSD or HDD using a Hard Drive caddy.
    It has great amount of likes but I don't trust him as much as I trust you.
    Neither he told us about the data transfer speed through Hard Drive Caddy.
    Could you please make your own video on this topic ?
    Let's check whether it will work or not. The hard drive caddy costs near 5 USD. I'm waiting for your response for this comment...

    The RGB is ugly as hell lol, but I guess it's ok if you can turn it off. But then again, if you can turn it off, it still cost a dollar or two to add it to the speaker, which means I rather put that dollar on the sound. But I guess all kids wants RGB.

    I have one of those LG speakers, but it is much much bigger. Overall, not that bad, but it isn't loud enough.
