    The original series were really innovative and sounded great in their day. Now the new stuff is flimsy and cheap. No mention of quality when I visited their big building in Boston, just cost optimization and complaints of the engineers that everything has to be made of ABS or polypropylene.
    The company is setup as a non-profit that is supposed to be a research juggernaut in audio technology. After visiting them, I am sure the money will run out soon for lack of quality and innovation.

    Same thing happened to Infinity. The best in the world in the late 70's, somebody else bought the name and now it's just cheap junk.
