Neither have I. But somehow I have a feeling that the Cascade line, with its mid-century modern styling, didn't sell well. And was the beginning of the end for Infinity's better quality speakers. The...

There's one of the very few reviews of the Intermezzo 4.1t here. Also excerpts from a speech by Floyd Toole. Great read, as were all issues of The Audio Critic.

I think you may have earlier on. And wasn't the comparison between the IL-60 and the Prelude P-FR, not the Prelude MTS?

Shouldn't matter much as far as the Infinity brand is concerned. Barring some unforeseen miracle, it seems to be dead. But we can still enjoy the fruits of their past labors. Here's my IL60s and...

The projector is significantly quieter in low output mode. That means a lot when the volume is reduced. At reference level maybe not so much.

But it does happen. A storm took out my DefTech sub amp, a Denon integrated amp, and my garage door opener. Sad day. Still waiting on being struck myself though.

In 1970 both Harman/Kardon and JBL were divisions of Jervis Corporation. So it's not like this hasn't happened before.

If I were in the market for new speakers right now those would be my first choice. A quality sub would be a necessity with them, though. Let us know how you like them.
