Like Woochifer, I believe you are stretching more than a bit here when you say the $S is for "people unwilling to pay for quality." That is not their target market at all... Who says you have to spend mega-bucks for good quality? That said, I would hardly call their review of the Legacy Audio Whisper a low priced speaker (as they go for about $16,000/pr.). I would say that they go after what they believe is the best bang for the buck at any price (within reason)... If a component costs plenty, but they feel the cost is well worth it, they do not shy away from it.

As for being skeptics, I would just say they are more honest than most... It is nice to see a publication that does *not* just go along with all the audio myths. Just my 2 cents...
