Took my daughter out to the entrance to Antelope Island (about 1/2 mile from our house) to catch the sunset. I haven’t uploaded my DSLR memory card yet, but I snapped this one with my new iPhone 12.

You have big speakers when you can make a pair of Pass Labs amps look like cereal boxes. happy0009.gif

From the 2006 Rocky Mountain Audio Fest:
 

Ray Kimber had a huge room in which he had installed four sets of electrostatic panels. Each set consisted of three 10 foot tall electrostatic speakers. The three speakers were arranged in an arc. You can see the front two sets in the photo above. They were being driven by Pass amplifiers.

Ray demonstrated his four-channel recordings that he makes by using an array of four microphones placed within a few feet of each other, but separated by sound absorbing panels.

The cost of this setup is about $300,000.

Crappy photo of a pair of Apogee Stages in front of Apogee Scintillas powered by a boat-load of Krell amps. 
 
You'd think anybody with the funds necessary to purchase that rig could also afford photography lessons. eusa_wall.gif

It's a Lego model of downtown!  happy0009.gif
 
It's actually a bunch of Burmester gear. And Sonus Faber "Aida" speakers (up front). Sonus Faber was recently bought by the same Fine Sounds group who bought McIntosh, Wadia, and Audio Research.

Isn't that Godzilla peeking around the tower?  The origin of Godzilla is readioactivity (fear of)..., so, with all that power, Rodan, Mothra and Megalon should be along shortly!

Lol! As hilarious as it would be, I think the owner of all that gear would be beyond apoplectic if we all showed up in rubber mutant lizard suits and started stomping and wrestling on his gear. Taz.gif Gene might supply him remote-controlled tanks and planes with *real* guns...

Western Electric: Theater Horn 16A
 
Introduced in 1929, the Western Electric 16A horn is a product of the early days of talking motion pictures. The 16A was intended as a compact solution for a horn speaker system to be mounted behind the movie screen hanging on chains. At 400 pounds and almost 3 meters wide, the idea "compact" is relative.  The WE 16A could be loaded with either two or four WE 555 field coil compression drivers. This horn has a unique dual horn construction which allows it to be used today for single point stereo.  The Western Electric 16-A Horn was available in two different configurations. The Part number 6016-A Horn consists of 16-A Horn and 2 9-A Receiver Attachments (for 2-555 Receivers). Air Column Length is approx. 12"-11". The Part number 6116-A Horn consists of 16-A Horn and 4 8-B Receiver Attachments (for 4-555 Receivers). Air Column Length is approx. 11"-10". Net weight 400 lb.

They look like upscale doggy beds but they are actually speakers from the Goto room at VSAC 2008.
 
These comments are from JP-numbers at Head-Fi.org: 
Not sure who built these beauties but they were massive and were right up there for sound of the show for me but were edged out by the Exemplar room (more on that later). The Horns were sourced with a Garrard turntable and when they played a Louis Armstrong record you felt like he was right there in the room with you. This was spooky good stuff but you need a huge dedicated room to make these work and a big budget to match.

DJ Mobile Car Speeds Along On Sound Rockets

DJ Mobile Car Speeds Along On Sound RocketsSEXPANDFor many enthusiasts, pimping out car sound systems (and even bicycles in some circles) is a time-honored tradition. However, Dutch artist Olaf Mooij may have taken this pastime to extreme new levels with his DJ Mobile. Inspired by the Popemobile and the song "God is a DJ" by Faithless, Mooij created a rolling PA system complete with two turntables and several gigantic speakers that look more like rockets. Details are scarce on the system itself, but it does appear that interested parties can rent out the system for loud and obnoxious events. [Olaf Mooij via Born Rich via Dvice]
