    A little dated, but an interesting link......the C-J LP-125M listed for $10K/pair.

    Interesting. I've not heard the CJs so I am being pre-judgemental, but wonder if $8k buys much more audio value than a pair of VTA M-125s. Can't imagine so, especially with the options of fine-tuning the drivers that the M-125s offer. Plus, the CJs, if I've read all the threads correctly, are murder on output tubes, whereas the VTAs, properly biased, are not.
    I would suggest talking to Jim McShane about this. Far smarter guy than I am.
