This is not a "SKY IS FALLING" thread...
I've owned my M&K setup for almost 3 years now and enjoy it very much. I have 3 S150's, 4 SS150's, and 2 MX350's in my HT. When I purchased them, I considered the Klipsch THX Ultra 2 system, Genelecs, Mackies, etc. Basically the popular pro-style studio monitors known for flat frequency response and accuracy.
Obviously my M&K's perform just as well today as they did prior to the appearant closing of the company and I still enjoy them greatly. In all honesty, I've yet to hear a speaker that gives my the urge to upgrade, BUT, I can't help but think that the resale/trade-in value on M&K's are going to be negatively impacted unless the company is purchased quickly by an organization committed to the same high-level of quality, warranty, and customer service and most improtantly they honor the warranty of previously purchased products - 10 years on speakers and 5 years on electronics.
Again, before anyone makes a point of it, all M&K speakers and subs provide the same level of performance and enjoyment today as they did last week, that's not the point.
