German engineering arrogance at its worst!  "You vill do vhat vee vant and
you vill like it!"

Does it not occur to these golden-eared audioists that MAYBE I'd like to hear
something a bit different than them?  Like perhaps when I'm driving 500 miles
and am spending the Interstate time trying to learn the lyrics to a song that
has the singer mostly on one channel?  Or trying to hear a counter-point that
is played mostly on one channel?  Or trying to tone-down a really Wagnerian

For $700, I'd like MY preference to override theirs when I want it to.
