Avalon Acoustics Tesseract speakers high-res pictures and info

Avalon Acoustics is pleased to announce the culmination of 5 years of research and design, the world premiere of an extraordinary and inspirational Musical Masterpiece. This handmade technological sculpture has been created utilizing the rarest elements for their strength and electrical properties: Diamond, ceramic, gold, copper, platinum, and silver. We believe you will find it stunning in visual beauty and unprecedented in technical achievement.
Entirely handcrafted in the foothills of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, Tesseract will be available exclusively through specially certified representatives drawn from within our distribution network in the Pacific Rim, Europe, and the United States.
