What's better? Spending $60k on speakers or taking 400 hours to build 'em?

For $60,000, you can get yourself a pair of Bowers & Wilkins Nautilus Speakers. Or, you can do what Alfonso de Rojas did, which was build his own over the course of about 400 hours.

Above, you can see an image of the work in progress. And below, you can see the finished product. Pretty great!
