Sheer gluttony. Not that I'd turn down an invitation to hear and see that system, but Holy Global Warming, Batman! The electric bills must be astronomical.

What's really amazing is those wireless subwoofers.

Actually, I can’t say I see any cable at all. It must be a false floor …pretty impressive.
However IMHO the room looks uninviting.

Actually, I was looking at the second picture down, where you can clearly see the binding posts on one of the upper subwoofers is not hooked to anything. Nor are any of the McIntoshes actually hooked up to anything that I can see. Bet that place is a mess when it's actually cabled.

yeah, it's possible that he removed all cables for the photo shoot. Could be that he doesn’t want anyone to know he uses bulk lamp cables as speakers cables

Holy smokes, That guy has got some $$! Must need a heckofa AC system to keep it cool with all those tube amps. Just my small jolida and my monoblocks seem to heat the room up pretty quickly. They are like having a soldering iron plugged in wheras that system is like having jet engine exhaust into the room!
