well, with a domain name like headphone.com I think it's expected that they sell headphones. I would not be surprised at all if 90% of their business was selling other people's wares. I don't think there's anything wrong with it myself. They are in business to make money afterall, and I bet they make more then many specialized amp builders. You think Ray Samual audio or audio gd make as much bottom line as they do?
Supposedly LG's got an OLED due out in june, we'll see. I like plasma's myself, Waiting on panasonic to do something with that fancy Kuro tech they bought. Plasma's tend to have a great lifespan too(10+ yrs).. no backlight to fail for starters.
After being laid off my Ma Belle few years ago, while waiting for my retirement age to kick in , I took a commission sales jobs at a local retailers ( no, it's not a Bluebox or Fry's), I have to say that people demand for TV has changed drastically.
Nine out of ten people will pick the Samsung LED over Sony, Toshiba, Sharp...and I know from the feedback that not only Samsung LEDs look more vivid than the others but the design of the thin bezels and the true thinness of the TVs. I cannot even count on my fingers how many Samsung UN55/UN60 series that I moved a week. Speaking in term of longevity and reliable , I cannot swear for anyone of them in particular.
The Mits DLPs are somehow struggling to due to price drop in the LCD/LED. We only carry some 92" 3D Mits but unless you have a huge room and your sitting area are more than 10 feet away, the picture quality is simply not good ( yes, I know they are still a rear projection Tv) . I do not know how Mits making money with their DPL lines when I moved on the average of 3 to 4 of the Sharp 70" to 80" a week ( price range from $1999.99 to $4500.99) , on the other hand the 92" DLP ( $4599.99) once a blue moon .
Going back to Audio gear, Audio Research still have one of the best SQ and high class looking. I have not seen a funky looking Audio Research, Classe, Krell amps or pre-amp lately. Speaking in term of speakers, look do sell. Sonus Faber, Paradigm ...
