yeah, but where are they going to sell them? with independent retailers rapidly disappearing at an accelerated rate and Tweeter, Harvey's & Ultimate struggling to survive about all that's left (besides the Internet, of course) is Best Buy, Circuit City, Wal-Mart, Target, Sears, K-Mart and the warehouse clubs. heck, you live in what is arguably the largest A/V consumer market in the country and there's not a single multi-store retailer left in your region that's based there besides Ken Crane's. Rogersound Labs was the last and they've been gone for something like 20 years now. What this industry really needs is some new retail blood to provide consumers with a more intelligent, needs-centric option than the big-box stores.
