Has Apple lived up to its own hype with its new flagship device?
Wilson Audio Alexandria XLF speakers
On a muggy May afternoon, we step into the basement room of London-based hi-fi specialist KJ West One and find ourselves in audiophile heaven. We're here to be treated to a demo of the Wilson Audio Alexandria XLF speakers. It's the first time they've been demonstrated in Europe, but why are we so excited? It's mainly because Wilson Audio describes its speakers as the "world's best" and it's slapped on a price tag to match. This is a pair of speakers that costs £200,000.

They look like the jaws of a set of pliers to me, the picture of the speakers facing one another!
Some footballer will plonk his cheque book on the counter followed a couple of days later those £200k speakers will be belting out Sex Is On Fire at 2 in the morning. Don't there'll will be a Sitar in sight.
