Hey, audiophiles. You need a pair of these limited-edition Klipschorn speakers.

Invented by Paul W. Klipsch in Hope, Arkansas, in 1946, these are the only speakers that have been continually produced for 70 years. That longevity can be attributed to their incredible sound quality, which is said to be as good as that of a live orchestra. For 16 Gs, it better be. 

This version (there are only 70 pairs in existence) includes a silver, vintage-inspired grille cloth that covers a 15-inch woofer, a two-inch midrange driver, and a one-inch tweeter. Each set has its own unique grain pattern milled from an Australian walnut tree.

The price tag is ridiculous, but the musical experience might just be worth it.

$16,000, klipsch.com
