Give me a dual-format player from a respected manufacturer around the $500 mark and I'm in. $1200 for a Goldstar? No thanks.

You folks crack me up.........."respected names" in an era of global sourcing & assembly - LMAO.

Two biggest pieces of crap I've ever owned were a Denon reciever & Panny TV - so much for the "name".

It's just my opinion & it's worth exactly what you paid for it.

Who thinks speakers from Yamaha, Pioneer, JVC etc are mid-fi ... today ?

They didn't make mid-fi anything back in the day. It was all perceived as cheap bells-n-whistles junk. Now, they all make pretty good mid-fi receivers. Yamaha and Pioneer have also made some strides in their speaker offerings:

Yamaha

That doesn't include the studio-level speakers that Yamaha manufactures.

Pioneer


The point is, I would no longer classify their offerings in the Kraco category- which is junk. I'm not saying that everything that LG manufactures is top flight, but I certainly wouldn't discount them on name alone. Especially if their product were to review well.
