For me, I have actually been pricing out an all rosewood 5.1 system from Axiom, and the premium on the M80s alone, is $650 more than just getting a standard veneer upgrade in the custom shop. To me that $650 is just not worth it for me at this point in my life. I would love to get rosewood, for a $800 premium over the regular price, I am starting to ask myself if that is really worth it?

Im surprised to see that nearly all the votes are limited to 2000 dollars. Assuming you have the cash assumes you have the cash to burn. So assuming I had the cash to burn I would spend up to about 20 grand for a pair. There are tons of great speakers beyond the 2k price point that I think you would be serisouly limiting yourself there.

EDIT. Wow this is an old thread. Guess I already voted once. I still do drool over those B&W's though \:\) Really hit the nail on the head in the last part of my old post too. What the hell was i thinking anyway.

Actually it is quite understandable considering the forum in which it was posted.
If this poll were posted on the Wilson Audio forum, i think you would see a very different curve.

Yes i know, old thread nostalgia week.
I may even go back and see what the very first post was that Peter put up, over nine thousand and change ago.

But the Question as asked ".....before you feel that there is a diminishing return on the quality of sound to price paid?"
Do you honestly believe spending $20,000 gets you 10X better SQ than $2000 mains?
I have heard $15000 Sonus Fabers(in a showroom, no A/B comparison) and I couldn't hear that much difference from my M80s.
