These five-foot tall speakers, called the Avantgarde Trio Classico, are supposedly awesome enough to justify their whopping $190,000 price tag. Along with enviable sci-fi looks, the speakers provide superior sound quality thanks to the three horn drivers, including a low-midrange, midrange, and tweeter, plus four dedicated subwoofers. Does that make them worth almost 200 grand? We are doubtful.
