I'm probably 100% crazy, but I seem to prefer the sound of passive subs over active subs. I mean the bass from passive subs just sound more like "speaker" bass. Crazy.

I think the question of this thread is about "value".

But there needs to be a clear definition of "value".

Does value tie into preference or performance?

Does one guy or even group of guys represent everyone else?

You buy the equipment that sound the best to you or suite your need the best. That is the salient point, not which is the cheapest.

Perhaps the future of audio sales is somewhere in between ID & B&M.

That's a grey area. EMP is owned by RBH, which is a B&M brand. :D

I think we will see more and more B&M brands go dual mode and cater both B&M and ID.

Yeah, you pretty much have to list them on Audiogon these days. Also list them for free on Craigslist, Audio Asylum, Audioholics, and anywhere else you can think of.
