    Yeah...rare, huh? Not really. And a "crossover coaxial"? What the heck is that? Have I missed something? It sounds "technical" and expensive, just like the hype and techno-bs that commercial speaker manufacturers use. If they're going to use certain terms, at least check the facts.

      Time to loosen those undies man. It's poking fun at the guy, he doesn't have to make sense, in fact, it's even funnier since we recognize the terms he's using are BS, when the general public won't.

        Looks like a Jolida amp.

          I think you're right. That's pretty sad. They could have at least used something good, like an Ongaku.

            Jolida...I was wondering what the amp was. Undies aren't too tight or in a bunch here, as I don't wear 'em; I laughed my arse off when he said that. One of my friends asked me what a XO coaxial was and I told him that they were making fun of the guy and his lack of knowledge.

              Yes, I've seen it. In the one I've seen the guy says something like "It reproduces frequencies only dogs can hear" or something like that.

                    My original intent was a little humor with my XO coaxial comment. I guess it can get lost without some emoticons in there, so apologies if I come across as some intolerant fool. My second post was both true and some laughs...I was cracking up typing it! I never get worked up about stuff on TV, even less so with stupid ads. Since my viewing preferences are Science, NatGeo, History/History Int'l and motorcyle racing on Speed, I don't get to see the usual drivel. If I got channels a la carte, I'd choose about 10, so DirecTV wouldn't make much money from me. Music is the norm at my house.

                        John,

                        "Intolerant fool"? Certainly not! :D Coming from a fan of, for example, the members of Monty Python, one of my joys in life is finding humor "hidden in plain view" within a sentence, statement, paragraph or sketch. Something not immediately apparent or obvious; being played "straight".

                        Your post also brought to mind a a scene from "Night Court", years ago:

                        (brief handed to assistant D.A. Dan Fielding from a buxom young understudy in the gallery)

                        "Regarding underwear-- I'm not wearing any..."

                        (The look on Dan's face upon reading that is way more priceless than anything on those stoopid VISA commercials!)
                        Because the MUSIC matters...

                            It's one to keep in mind if you build a system for your dog to listen to. ;)

                              Would have been funnier to us if they said the second order harmonic distortion is off the chart, but even distortion sounds warm and fuzzy to most people. Tube amps are the worst on any level. Iconic, yes. Sonic, never. Yes Milber, tube driver, and Us amps attempt at a front end. I'll pass and take my denon with my mb quarts. Tubes do look great though.
