  • Avantgarde Trio Classico

    Found in the desert after a night of strange activity in the skies, the Avantgarde Trio Classico ($190,000) are finally available for sale. Apart from their brainwashing-capable looks, the Trio Classico deliver otherworldly audio thanks to three horn drivers — a low-midrange, midrange, and tweeter — and four dedicated subwoofers, all of which combine to pump out sound literally capable of transporting you anywhere in the universe. And if you believe all of that, you might actually be crazy enough to pay for them.
