I was in a local shop a few days ago. One of the salesmen was telling me how they are going to be dropping all Yamaha home stereo products. Of course I asked him why. He told that since Yamaha has been selling their products in Best Buy and other stores very similar, the products are more and more cheaply made. This was very disappointing for me to hear being a fan of Yamaha for several years now. My main amplifier is a Yamaha. I had planned on upgrading in the next few months. Does anyone know if what I was told is true? I hope not. I am sick of all these great companies cheaping out just to make a buck.
