We have embarked on a humungous midsummer project, what is likely to be a Hi FI system with a total installed cost approaching a million dollars.

There are location, calibration, measurement, and installation difficulties which we are overcoming at this moment....

And how do you place a value on the primary audio components, and not least the system?

As I generally do, I will measure what I can and report, and listen with great concentration to familiar music and sources, comparing this actuality with previous experiences.

I will not be addressing the moral dimension,: can such an expense be justified?

Sounds like a a very exciting project and look forward to your report/s. Can you share any info on the components? Guessing Wilson XVX or a Naim/Focal system or perhaps Definitive Audio Horns combined with CHP M10/L10.

I don't think Naim/Focal can reach the million mark.

Also guess Wilson plus , perhaps, Relentless.

Horns would be unusual for mainstream HiFi magazines.
