    Why manufacturers continue to entertain working with this guy is beyond me. He trashed NAIM and now heís trashing McIntosh. This is a guy who dabbles in budget receivers, TVís and trashing vinyl. Mind boggling. Is HIGH END Home Theater a...

    Has anyone for half a second stopped to think of things a different way with respect to the new S3? The reality is, the new S3 is FAR closer to an M3 than itís predecessor. Diamond coated beryllium tweeter, far heavier speaker with higher grade...
