They filed bankruptcy then AR was sold to Audiovox who took on all of AR's debt, the cable division was sold (GE) seperatly as well. Sorry for the back story but the good ol days and legacy of AR are no more.
No, BTW, thanks for the trip done memory lane. I used to sell the OLD AR9`s. AR a well respected company back in the days of ADVENT made some pretty nice speakers. Its sad to hear what happened. I didn`t realize the accessory giant Recoton took them over.
You do have a nice setup. How do you like the new AR9`s, and how do the Outlaw`s stack up for power? I know the old AR9`s were quite power hungry. Soaked up many a power amplifier!!!
