Big screen packages aren't hard to put together- pretty much every Hifi store has their own package system, generally made by bundling together some high margin components so that a high nominal discount can be achieved.

We are proud to present once again on demo the Michell Gyrodec, arguably the most iconic of all hifi components. Its form and function rivals anything from the Eames stable, its appearance undeniably mid-century modern. Its creator, the late J.A. Michell, founded an engineering company that provided services to the film industry in the 60s, including the design of space crafts for Stanley Kubrick's 2001 - A Space Odyssey. No doubt this was why the GyroDec appeared in "A Clockwork Orange" by Kubrick.

Ok, so that's been done before, but never approaching this level of quality.
We had the first Brio-R in the country, being the first made for Australia unit prior to stock shipment. Immediately out of the box it impressed as resembling mostly an ingot of solid steel, a real piece of cast in England.
