I think they're up to 99% complete now. Maybe by RMAF they'll be at 100%...

This imaginary interview around the time of the last RMAF may shed some light on why the CES earned a pass this year.

LOL. Who the heck took time to make that? It was pretty funny, though!

Quite a few other ones were made that also parody the humble one.

If anything, it just shows that their dedication to the craft is unending. Now, if people here had one iota of compassion and gave a company like AV123 at least several years to figure out how their products worked, then, dear sir, they would be rewarded; rewarded with a working manual. One must give them props for that. I...I...just don't...

I predict in the year 2015 they will release the slave workers from captivity and let them see their loved ones. I also predict that within 20 years they would have honed their abilities as world class speaker/subwoofer designers and release a truly functional product with a 100% complete manual. I'll offer my services in that department but I don't come cheap.

Thing is, people need to give a company time...then and only then will they be rewarded. Oh my, the rewards...

Regards,

Given the current state of affairs, perhaps 10-20 years, with timing based on good behavior...

I just watched all of them. I don't care what anyone else says, that's some funny stuff. I can't stop laughing... brilliant!
Very enlightening and much more entertaining than reading any posting about the guy.

So let me get this straight, you are telling me that AV123 is no longer in business?

I can't tell if you are being serious or joking around. If it is a legit question, then yes, AV123 has folded.

MLS was tried and sentenced for several issues involving fraud. AV123's inventory was liquidated a couple/few years ago.

[And then he was tried and sentenced for other crimes involving taking monies for other non existent products. However, if you click on the av123 link you'll find it's back.

Only one person would buy a toxic asset like that.
