Other Audio Equipment

I am just getting back into audio so currently all I use (at home) are my headphones. But,in the past,I have owned numerous "highend" home brands such as Martin Logan,B&W,Paradigm,Rotel,Krell,Wadia,etc. I am now more of the school of thought that most high end audio products are scams or just not worth the money over well made senesibly priced mainstream products. My favorite overall speaker ever were some early 80s vintage Polk Audio Monitor 10bs. My car audio setup (2012 Mustang) is 2 sets of Polk DB571s, 10" Sundown Audio SA-10 subwoofer in a sealed custom enclosure running off a Precision Power pc740.5 5 channel amp. I will be upgrading my front stage to eiither Morel or Focal components (Hopefully soon!).
