speaking of Mr Burns, did you know that he says "Ahoy-Hoy" because thats what Alexander Graham Bell initially intended to be the default greeting when answering the telephone?

Please never tell me about your THX-Cert sound system ever again, or your 250W Sub. Do you think B&W speakers are THX certifiied, no, do you think AE speakers are THX certified, no. And guess what, there extremely good. What does this prove, THX is a sign of crapness.

Welcome to the forums Im a 'say what im thinking' kinda guy, and get angry and argue alot over anything to do with Hi-Fi speakers, amps and headphones. and i play alot of games.

have fun here.

Hi Phantom! Welcome to the forum!

It's good Alexander Graham Bell had changed his mind and we don't have to use A-hoy hoy! greeting each other over the phone. LOL
