when the mass merchants become 65+ % of a mnfgrs buisness , as best buy will certainly be to Klipsch, they begin to dictate terms . They say "gee, we don't think that your models x and y fit into our price structure ; so either figure out how to make them cost us $40 and $60 less or we can't carry them"....The Klipsch guys (like polk in a similar situation) grab their ankles and say "yes sir, great idea sir!"...and thus goes quality audio...... Have recently seen the "made in mexico" sign on some of their products...Also doesn't bb own magnolia hi-fi? what is really going on...have heard rumors that since the old man died there has been some disagreements as to which direction to go in....not particularly impressed with what they were showing at ces.....is this the beginning of the end ? All vinyl...Spend money on new cabnitry, not new technology? Any other thoughts?
