Just in case you were wondering how much the most expensive amplifier in the world costs, the Italian-made Opera Only soars way above every other amp on the list at $2.2 million dollars.

Meantime, it looks like the freakin' International Space Station—and probably costs just as much. So what pray tell do you get for that almost unimaginable figure?
