B&W speakers sound excellent with Classe amps so I think is a wise move for them to buy Classe.

You didn't hear ??

Bose is going to merge with the company that makes factory car speakers. Being that they have similar frequency responses, officials feel that this merger is a very good fit.

Bose/Krell is a bad match. Last time a salesman offered me a $14,000 Krell 700cx with Acoustimass speakers I SET THE GUY ON FIRE! Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

Actually the same salesman offered me the same deal and I told him that I already have Acousitmass speakers and that I didnt need a second set and so he agreed to knock off $13,000 for the price of Acoustimass and gave me the Krell 700cx only for $1,000.Posted Image

Yogi;

The guy was humbled by his first degree burns. His new perspective in life led him to a charitable accomodation for you.

I thought Apex had already made the move for a hostile takeover of Madrigal. You think the SEC and EU would approve of it?

Ooh, that would mean we could get a Levinson amp for $200 from the back of a white van. Then, we could come here and post about what a great deal we got, only to be shot down for having bought a rip off.Posted Image

Doesn't the company that owns PSB own NAD now too? Linbrook... something or other? (Or maybe I'm thinking of a street name...) And then the tight connection between Atlantic and Outlaw too. And then Harmon as a big umbrella corp for a whole bunch of subsidiaries. H/K (!), JBL, Lexicon, Revel, etc. Denon and Marantz, although I never really understood that one because there's a lot of overlap.
If it's not worth waiting until the last minute to do, then it's not worth doing.
