Floyd Toole says that to ground the comparison between two speakers, you need a third Bad Speaker so that they remember how bad lo-fi stuff is. This sounds like a perfect use for a Bose setup.

P.S did Klipsch get sold. If so, Klipsch, Energy, and Mirage; will turn into Bose.

If you have ever read Sean Olives blog, whenever there is a comparison of speakers, a Bozo product is usually thrown in the mix.

And yes, Klipsch Group Inc. purchased (API) Audio Products International, Corp. And most recently Audiovox purchased Klipsch Group, Inc. So that means Audiovox now owns the Klipsch, Energy, Mirage, Athena and Jamo brands...DOH!

I heard about it. I was just asking if it was true because i did not see a Klipsch Press Release.

Audiovox's acquisition of Klipsch Group, Inc. and its subsidiary's is expected to finalize in March.

Axiom got Andrew Welker out of the previous acquisition's aftermath. Maybe they can get something else out of this one.

Yes, Andrew was an excellent addition to Axiom.

I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.
