    .. this brand no longer appears on ebay, at least under this spelling.


    ...a few weeks ago there were over a hundred hits!

    But, if this post is sincere in asking about this unit, my answer rhymes with "hit", but with a leading "s"

    I really shouldnt comment at all since I have never heard this system. But I think I would rather buy a HT receiver made by Memorex.

    It is possible that one of them could be a cheaper knockoff?

    The amazing this about viral marketing is that 1) these tools actually do it and 2) you know people actually fall for it. Who falls for it you ask? The same people that fall for the Nigerian scam.

    What do you expect though when the leader of the free world uses phrases like "the internets" or "the google." Does anyone else remember when Bush, Sr. was amazed at seeing a bar code scanner first time in 1988?

    The internet should really come with a minimum IQ requirement.

    Let's see;
    MSRP $3,899 actual auction selling price $305. Must be good stuff!

    There was this Southern California used car dealer, he had late night TV ads on shows like "Creature Features" his name was Cal Worthington, he used to say, "We make it up in volume". (Didn't Cal go to jail?).

    serpi, if you didn't get it by now, i'll say it for you in a more 'understanable' way,
    DO NOT buy that davinci crap, it's a scam,

    I like their catchphrase...

    ...Innovative Sound & Bass

    Head and shoulders above the original Innovative Sound & Walleye Pike...

    And I'm curious, what exactly constitutes innovative sound? Last thing I want is sound that is somehow new or novel...and is it just the sound that's innovative or does it also apply to the bass?...or does innovative only modify the word "sound" and leave the bass to fend for itself? Perhaps their earlier offerings only provided innovative sound and ignored the bass, but after too many complaints they decided to include frequencies bellow 500Hz...as in not only is our sound new and novel but we also now provide bass...funny language English...And speaking of which, since the owners manual is in English and doesn't include any foreign languages, youda' thunk they'd do a better job at it....
