    Nooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!

    Personally, I think API is one of the best speaker manufacturers on the planet....making good sounding speakers from budget models in the Athena Technologies line up to those Energy Veritas speakers. I wonder what would happen to those brands now, given Klipsch's history of dismantling the Mondial/Aragon brands once it was acquired.

    Hmmm....more consolidation in the home audio industry.

    Holy crap! Klipsch already had a bunch of high-end brands in its stable. Couple more years, they might be able to give Harman International a run....

    I just hope they give Bose a run. I don't care if Klipsch takes over some companies so long as Bose takes a dive.
