I am tired of reading audio reviews. I get them in my inbox all the time in the vain hope of finding something unique and interesting. Instead I feel like I get the same drivel repackaged every time in slightly different ways. I don't recall reading a truly objective/critical review of any speaker systems in quite awhile. I was especially peeved with this one where extended break in is recommeneded to truly appreciate this system. Maybe I'm just grumpy today. mad End rant.

It's hard to determine if the thread was hijacked or if it was simply gyro failure.

I am hoping for the gyro explanation as I am a fan of Greek food.

Dan, keep in mind that with the internet, ANYONE can be an expert and write an article, even if they aren't...

I agree with your rant.

Three pet Peeves I decided upon last night.

1. Sports bras that are so tight the beach volley ball players look like men.

3. Wearing sweaters while playing beach volleyball. I know it's not the warmest anymore but it ruins the whole effect.

2. Holding said impromptu beach volley ball tournament on the beach on the far side of the island off my house so I didn't know it was going on until I innocently paddled around to play in the waves.
