              i did confuse it with Acoustic Research . while looking at Audio Research i was thinking " I don't remember them have anything like this , they've come a long way !" , this explains it !

                There's still an Acoustic Research, but they are related to the original company in name only, having bought the rights to use it.

                  I don’t know about being part of the Mac group, but it does look to be associated with (or at least owned by the same holding company as) high end brand Classe.

                    Marantz is owned by Sound United, which is also the parent company of Denon, Classe, Definitive Technology, Polk Audio, Boston Acoustics and Heos. No mention of McIntosh, anywhere.

                      They were under the same parent company up to a few years ago.

                        Your observation in this holds true for a lot of brands. And in parallel to that I think individual products stand or fall on their own merits, or lack of them, as it seems unreasonable to me to rely on expectations that with changes in individuals making management decisions and making engineering decisions that the reputations built in yesteryears will be applicable to current and future products.
