Craig,

I am selling nothing. I have zero horse in this game other than friends involved with the company, and the fact that this marketing exercise was my idea. You see- I am not...

well, with 16 channels for output- you don't have enough to triamp and biamp each loudspeaker. You need 9 channels for the fronts, and 12 channels for the overhead: that's 21 output channels (if you...
