    New JBL 4348

    Anyone have pricing on these new 4-way systems? They are available in North America.

    It seems that in audioheritage.org there is a little mistake :

    " Pricing in Japan is rather high at 16,000,000 Yen or around $12,000US/pr. "

    Happily, I think that it is 1,600,000 Yens instead of 16,000,000

    According to Harman Consumer Group they are not available in the U.S.

    The worst news though is that none of the parts to build your own are in stock. They were all in stock the last time I checked. Nice project if one wanted the latest, greatest 4340-style monitor.

    Other than the wanky little midrange horn (I have no idea what it sounds like that is purely a subjective aesthetic call.) it looks like it is made with the right stuff and may be a real performer. At $12,000/pair it may actually be a bargain. That seems like a lot of speaker.

    Those wanky little midrange horns go for $720.20 a pair.

    In other words, you'll never see them for sale in the U.S.A.

    720 USD? Rebuilding them in Gold might save some money

    Just joking. They are still cheaper than 2344 were back then.
