    Penny wise and pound foolish.

    True story Al, I had a gentleman call me the other day and he said, “I’ve been auditioning speakers all weekend, and I’ve narrowed it down to Harbeth and XYZ”. I asked him “what all did you hear?” He rambled off 15 different speakers. “Wow” I said, “you must have been busy. Where did you hear all these speakers.”
