YG Acoustics Anat Reference II Professional

A word of warning: as beautiful as it is, YG Acoustics’ Anat Reference II Professional isn’t the sort of loudspeaker that promises to surrender to your carefully crafted decor.
Standing nearly six feet tall and tipping the scales at 440 pounds, this American-made modular monolith refuses to shrink timidly into the background.
And shrink it shouldn't.
A previous incarnation of this speaker was named one of the 40 most significant loudspeakers of all time by Japan’s prestigious Stereo Sound.
From its breathtaking ascending form to its aircraft grade 6061-T651 aluminum front baffle and enclosure—according to the company, “simply the most resonant free ... stiffest, strongest, and most acoustically desirable materials ever found”—every facet of the Anat Reference II Professional’s design points toward the goal of ultimate performance, not aesthetic timidity.
According to YG, the usable frequency range extends from below 20 Hz to 40 kHz with +/- 1dB in the audible band.
Audition a pair today and see if you agree with the company’s claim to have produced “the most transparent, detailed, accurate, and musical speakers ever created.”
Just don’t bring your uptight interior designer with you.
Anat Reference II Professional: $107,000/pair
