JBL's big, bad Mt Everest speaker system

Step in front of JBL's new Mt. Everest speaker system and you too can feel the pain. Look, we don't pretend to be audiophiles round these parts, but when a reputable company like JBL drops a new flagship speaker system into the mix by the name of Mt Everest, well, it's gonna be one badazz, mofo'n speaker. Besides, if you're buying a speaker system measuring in at 38 x 18.5 x 44-inches, 313-pounds and pumping 500 watts of thump, well, you're probably trying to purchase more than just sound quality now aren't you. Available from September 21st in Japan for ¥3,460,000 or nearly $30,000. Oh, and check a better image of the complete Mt. Everest system done-up in maple after the break -- who knew all that power came from two 9v Duracell batteries?
