JV rambles on about ethics? He then goes to Wal-Mart cus he must be saving a dollar on his medications, shopping at Wal-Mart is supporting a grand ethics lacking business. So JV is just a hypocrit. I've been to a Wal-Mart 2 times in my life, one to look at a price, they where $10 MORE than a K-Mart down the street.!!! Low prices, everyday, except that day? the other time, they where close to a job I was doing, they didn't have what I needed anyway. The end of the Wal Mart experience. But maybe his saving money on his purchases are OK, just cus' well, he knows what stores he should go to to save money, and the ones you should go to to be fleeced and pay too much for teh same product. Perhaps teh medication ain't working, double teh dose. Cus' something sounds real phoney in J.V. ville. When you pay too much, it has to sound better? What won't an audiophile not beleive? I've found it sounds better, teh better teh deal is, pay less, hear more. Support U.S. mfgs, buy factory direct, and get teh best procut you can for teh money, this way the ones who can't compete on price/value points will fade, and teh good mfgs and sellers remain. It's high end SOUNd reproduction, or is it just about high prices, to claim, look, my TT costs $27K, ain't i some kind of sound wiz? But it sounds like teh basic $3K one without teh high end rents you paid for.
