The Usher Dancer II 8871 Speaker is shown in the photo below. It uses a beryllium tweeter. Notice the irregular surface of the woofer cones in the second photo. This indicates that the paper material was laid out in a cone shape and allowed to dry naturally, rather than being forced into a cone shape. Sort of like steel that has been poured into a mold to cool rather than hammered into shape. The Dancers are $10,900/pair.

The Consonance Teardrop CD Player, also by Usher, uses tubes for the output stage, and is priced at $3,000.

Usher's R-1.5 Reference Standard Power Amplifier ($2,500) outputs 150 watts x 2 in Class A.
