This is the Sawada Audioís assault on Western ears. Japanís Tutankhaman Loudspeaker, priced at a dizzying $85,000 per pair, weighs in at a hefty 300 lbs. each, and is rated at staggering 99dB 1watt / one meter efficiency. Composed of four of the finest Lowther drivers per enclosure (list at $4k each), this loudspeaker sounded much better in Osaka ,Japan, where I first heard them. The problem is this small, boxy room at the Alexis Park. They sound incredible in my listening room. (pictured here) Stay tuned for a review coming soon!
