I am sure they are excellent. Certainly on the higher end for PC speakers given it's cost, which looks like over $800.

I've been searching online and it seems like only Lockware (only authorized seller on the East Coast) sells them.

$760 doesn't seem too bad considering how many people used to pay $500 for Logicraps Z-5500 back in the day.

How far is "back in the day?"

From the day they were released in 2004 to mid-late 2007 they were going for about $180-220 brand new.

Google, look up suggested retail price 2004 Z-5500 $399.99-499.99USD + tax.
