Lie is what your kid does when you ask him who broke the vase.

Prevaricate is what corporations do with their taxes.

Masa, where speakers exceed a manufacturers suggested retail price of $2,000, the law requires that all statements made by salesmen concerning them be termed prevarications rather than lies.

Actually, my issues with the salesworm (thanks for expanding my vocabulary, dude) were his statements concerning HDTV sets. Technically, he wasn't lying when he said the gov't had ordered all TV broadcasts to be switched to the HD format by such and such date (I think the first gov't deadline has already come and gone, hasn't it?). The implication being: Might as well buy one of these widescreens right now, because in 2006 your current sets will be useless.
I pointed out to him that TV stations make money by connecting advertisers with the populace. As long as the vast majority of people have standard TV sets, that will be the prevailing broadcast signal.
He continued with the BS about how we're all going to have to buy converter boxes for the old sets, blah, blah, blah...
Thus, I believe prevaricating is a more accurate term than lying in this case.

So in other words prevaricating is "beating around the wallet?"

(i.e. giving you the positives while neglecting to mention the negatives in order to make an item seem irresistable)

Speaking of Michauras, do they have a website? I'm getting curious, now.

They did, but they launched their line of speakers about the same time as our Saudi friends decided to fly three US airliners into the heart of US commerce, the heart of the US military, and the White House or Congress (that flight brought down by heroes in a field in Pennsylvania.)

Michaura basically sold its inventory to ubid.com which blew these speakers out at ridiculously low prices. If you ever get a chance to buy a pair of Michauras, the M22 like M55s, the M50 like M66s, or the M60 like M665s, GRAB IT!

These speakers are incredibly good. Sound quality very, very similar to Axioms, but in my humble opinion, better. Maybe its the hexagonal shaped cabinets, dunno. A fluke maybe. But they are superbly built, beautiful to the eye, and incredibly wonderful sounding.
