Poor Fritz

There’s no better value and no one as willing to make bespoke speakers out there than Fritz and these forums treat his speakers as if they cost $200K.
They don’t. They are remarkably affordable and yet potential customers put him through the absolute ringer, asking for custom features, going through 2 or 3 models of home auditions and maybe not even buying any of them.

Look, you buy what you want to buy, but I think not enough credit is given to the man or his speakers in terms of the overall value proposition and I think this is a disservice overall.  If you write a 5 page review, please keep this very much in mind that you are not reviewing Wilson or Focal's flagships.  Maybe he doesn't deserve quite the same scrutiny.

Although I thought it was rather humorous in the beginning...now I just find it sad.  Yes, I'm referring to that "K" guy, his posts, the reply to his posts and the declarations of "I won't read that drivel anymore!".

Well I'll see ya and raise ya one:  Not only won't I look at the "K" posts anymore, I won't read ANY post that mentions "K".  

..They are remarkably affordable and yet potential customers put him through the absolute ringer...

There are reviews on the Fritz website and he charges something like $3295 for a small BE 2-way speaker, not inexpensive by any means. Seems like a fair price if you like how they sound. No guarantee.   

The speakers seem to hold their own, he sends them out for people to try and evaluate them, and hopefully they purchase them... sounds like a great formula and it works.  Word is he sells a lot of them, that's great!  

Do you own a pair of Fritz speakers and how do you like them?

Regarding the comment about the price mentioned, he will do them for $3250, shipping included. And return shipping if you don't like them. The Tektons mentioned are a much different speaker, so to each their own. But consider that Tekton will charge you for shipping one way, so if you try them and return them, you're out on shipping, but not on Fritz.

The other thing to mention is, as @jond  says, there are lots of factors to consider. The expertise and "ear" of the maker is one; the other is that sometimes supporting good merchants just requires that price not always be the bottom line. I buy books in my local independent bookstore despite what they cost on Amazon because, well, spending my money that way gives me a whole other kind of value. I pay a bit more for coffee at my local roastery/café, too. Anyone who is shopping for speakers in the thousands can afford to not insist that price is the ultimate deal-maker/deal-breaker.
