Israeli police report that they recently arrested 27 people trying to smuggle 238 pounds of cocaine into their country using SPEAKERS as their conduit. As you can imagine, the consumer electronics world is having a little fun with this story. The writers at Home Theater Review hope, given the high price of the substance in question, that the smugglers would have been using “audiophile grade speakers” for the job. Another suggested “there are a number of audiophile speakers that actually have more profit margin than 238 pounds of Peruvian flake.”

Um, not quite. But hey, while you’re here, check out our great lineup of speakers at ListenUp. In fact, you CAN get a steal from us (not that kind) if you buy some Sonus faber Concerto Domus Black Floorstanding Speakers for $1,999 (a $1,500 savings!). Check it out.
