Thanks for your input on that, fellas, and keep the comments coming if you think of anything else.

I, for one, miss the graphic EQ in my system's loop; don't know if it's nostalgia or something else, but I do miss it -- that being said, I HAVE learned to appreciate the sound of the setup with tone controls neutralized (in their "12:00" positions) as I have gotten older...
fwiw, had a pioneer graphic eq in my system back in the '70's, it did help on some of the not so well recorded lp's at the time but overall to me became just a novelty piece.

i'm so laid back,i'm laid out

Newbie here. I know it is looked down upon here, but I still use my old SAE EQ. I for one, do not think that every musician out there recorded music plays it as MY ears want to hear. I like to make it sound good to me. I appreciate that they intended for it to sound a certain way. But some recordings just lack fine tuning (for my old ears).

Plus the lights are cool.

Completely off topic, I see from the reflection in your TV that you have high windows directly across the room.

If you have some "inside only" cat I have an idea to share with you.

If not, never mind.

Those floors remind me of the ones we had in our house a millioin years ago in Colombia.

So cool when it's hot outside...but certainly reflect sound.

Love Usher speakers though I only have the lowly V602s and V603 center.

Even they sound lovely yours are another level of lovely.

Speaking of McIntosh...has anyone seen that Crutchfield is carrying them now? I got the latest summer catalog and on the cover were the words "TOP SHELF" with the announcement that McIntosh is now being sold...

I understand that companies must do this to survive in a certain day, age and market...but I can't help but wonder what this is going to do for their reputation...it reminded me of when I always thought of Rockford Fosgate as top-shelf car audio (I sure couldn't afford it at the time)...and suddenly I noticed their amps in Crutchfield...

Suddenly it was like...Fosgate is...I don't know..."mass market"...

Not that this is a "bad" thing per se (heck, I can only afford mass to above-mass stuff) but...do you know what I mean?

Yup i know what you mean, Soon walmart will be selling them too right ? Everyone wants to sell the things that have mass markup on the product to make money money money.. It's always about money.. Remember Futureshop (bestbuy now ) used to only sell Yamaha and Denon & Pioneer, now they sell all kinds of receivers and speakers..

Looking at their flyers now they sell vacuum's and other house hold things. DAMN even candy and other crap too..

Yeah, I saw that and am now returning all my stuff to my retailer

Actually, Crutchfield is only selling a subset of the items McIntosh offers. You can buy McIntosh on Amazon, too. I don't see it as "cheapening" the brand, but rather opening the market up to others. Their reputation will continue to be made on the quality of the products they make and the sound they produce, not where they are sold.

In reality, retailers get one of the lowest margins in the industry from selling McIntosh....

J,

I don't necessarily think Walmart will be selling McIntosh anytime soon, lol, but the problem is that these esoteric boutique brands have to compete in a marketplace where everyone buys their home-theater-in-a-box systems at the same warehouse they buy their 20-pack of ass (toilet) paper -- there's just little to no market for the mom-and-pop specialty outlets when it comes to a subset of commodities like electronics. I remember years back, around the time I graduated from college, pre-1996 or so, I used to browse around and buy from standalone audio shops like Park Audio in New York City (bought my first Marantz DR700 consumer CD recorder from them) and other retailers, eventually demoing and buying Marantz CD changers for my home system...it's like, those days are gone. The ONLY stores that REMOTELY offer an experience like that near me are RC Willey and Fry's, both of which are managed by such incompetent staff that's only interested in selling anything they can to make their quota, it makes for a miserable experience. Half the mass-market stuff (cheap entry-level Sony, Yamaha et al) is sitting on the showroom floor with broken knobs and dials, and the whole experience is just depressing from an audio enthusiast's perspective...

Now, I have nothing against buying from "affordable" channels -- i.e. Crutchfield (bought my current Marantz CD changer from them), Fry's (bought my Polk RTi12s in my home theater on a ridiculous sale from them) and such -- but there's something about WHEN more "high end" products begin filtering into these mass market channels that turns me off. The bottom line is that I could not afford what would be sold in super high end outlets (if they still existed in mass) anyway, so I make sure I'm careful to "enjoy the experience" of where I buy my "better than average" gear (in other words -- I'd rather buy my Marantz and Onkyo pieces from, say, a "respected" outfitter like J&R Music World or even Crutchfield, as compared to going into Best Buy and purchasing, say, the cheap entry-level Insignia stereo receiver that's on display...or going into Radio Shack and buying the $89 Sherwood receiver on the shelf)...there's a limit I won't drop below, so to speak...

You're right -- they're certainly not selling ALL of what this legendary American brand has to offer. And I realize they're on Amazon, too. I didn't really know how to describe it; perhaps "cheapening" isn't the right word...it just feels weird that such a high end badge is being channeled through such retailers. BUT, I totally understand why it's done, like I said, and agree with your assessment that they're opening up the market to others in a way...and, you're right: It matters how something SOUNDS and PERFORMS, not where it's sold. My biggest thing is a MENTAL kind of connection, and I feel the same way about gear as "accessible" as Onkyo's -- I love this brand, but feel like it somehow was "cheapened" by being offered in places like Circuit City before the chain went kaput. I realize that's totally irrational in many ways -- it's just a mental perspective; in other words, I'd rather buy my Onkyo stuff from, say, a "knowledgeable" retailer channel like J&R than via a Circuit City closeout venue of some kind...

HOWEVER -- all of that being said, at the end of the day, yes...it doesn't really matter WHERE it's bought if it's the brand's genuine product and it's new (if that's what you're looking for).

I was just kidding about returning my stuff. I still kinda like it

I do know what you are saying, though, about where you buy things has a mental effect. If you buy a premium good, you want to have the premium experience. Unfortunately, as you said, the opportunity to do that is getting few and far between.

I really don't pay much attention to what the big box stores are doing. I am lucky to have 2 local retailers that I support because I like the personal attention I get when someone knows my name, tastes and budget. When they get something new, they know if it will be a good fit in my system because they know what I already have and what I don't.

I like to audition things for a long time (at my pace, not someone else's), and be able to touch the controls and discuss the product with someone who has a passion for what I'm buying. Also, if I have an issue, I don't stand in line under a "Customer Service" sign or print off a return form and lug it to FedEx or UPS.

I cross my fingers that never fully goes away, but I know that might be hoping against hope

EDIT: just read some of the Crutchfield "bashing." True stereo stores from back in the day are, sadly, now few and far between. Crutchfield is a fine place to buy brands like Focal, PSB, Monitor Audio, Sonus Faber, Martin Logan, etc. so I don't see this cheapening the brand to be honest.

Reminds me of my Dad's all Mac setup back in the day...but I remember blue not green.

EDIT: just read some of the Crutchfield "bashing." True stereo stores from back in the day are, sadly, now few and far between. Crutchfield is a fine place to buy brands like Focal, PSB, Monitor Audio, Sonus Faber, Martin Logan, etc. so I don't see this cheapening the brand to be honest.
It's actually a reference to a New Order song, but I guess it's a bit obscure.

The green glow is interesting, but it's nice that they can be turned off.

Their latest album, "Music Complete," from last year is good if you haven't heard it.

Not a compilation.

Yes, I agree, it is an excellent album. Really glad they rediscovered their electronic groove.
