Someone had better tell Joey Roth to start putting his prices up: a mere $495 (£300) for a pair of 6-inch ceramic speakers, complete with a 15W per channel amplifier, will earn him no friends in the world of exotic audiophilia. It even ships with 16-gauge oxygen-free copper speaker cable and matching interconnects, for heaven's sake.

The speakers are made from porcelain, cork and birch wood, while the amp is stainless steel sheet metal with a cast iron base and a wooden volume slider. Aside from the electronic components, plastic is completely absent - this is one mini system made to last.
