    I was introduced to high-end stereo in early 1990 when I walked into Steve Jobs's office and nearly tripped over a "raw" driver sitting on the floor.

    He said, "Careful. That costs $40,000."

    If was from the latest and greatest Wilson Audio speakers that somebody was trying to sell Steve -- probably David Wilson himself.

    I have no idea whether the driver actually cost $40,000. Steve had a penchant for hyperbole.
