The very few speakers where the mice had no positive effect whatsoever include the “River‘sTone“ speakers from Japanese maker Anodic Supply Ltd in association with Michio Sakamoto – a sound engineer and former director of a Sony complex in Shinanomachi, Tokyo. With a design ethos of “Less is More”, River’sTone is premium speaker system featuring a dedicated bi-amplifier, various type of high-quality enclosures including a stunning solid gold finish and offers sonic purity of the highest caliber.
The three-piece set – the speakers are complemented by an integrated amplifier of identical dimensions 12.4 x 13 x 17 cm in size, but they are quite powerful and offer very high-quality sound thanks to the liberal use of gold. According to the website “Solid gold bodies achieve the lowest ‘longitudinal elastic modulus/density’ resulting in incredible clarity and a transparently pure audio signal.” The set was designed to be extremely clean, seamless, gaps or screws from the front or the sides. Each piece is handcrafted in Japan.
The speakers are available in gold and silver shapes and forms solid silver and solid gold plated. The speakers feature custom grills designed encrusted with diamonds or zircons and are optional. The version in solid gold with 40 carats of flawless diamonds is supposedly priced at about $5 million.
These speakers are strictly made to order and the only way to get one is contacting agents listed on the website River’sTone.
