The old Optimus Brand name is gone, since last year. I think it was public knowledge that Pioneer OEM'd lots of the audio gear (receivers and cd players). Starting last year, RS signed a deal with RCA. Now the RCA label has replaced the Optimus one. But I'll be darned, those new RCA Radio Shack receivers still look like Pioneers to me. I figured that RCA would supply the gear, but it's only the name? I wonder how Pioneer feels about having an RCA label on its gear. Am I wrong? What's going on? Rich B.
