    Default White van or legit?

    Hi all..

    Is this company a white van company, or something reputable?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/AUDIO-RESEARCH-D...item439f51d30e

    Audio Research sounds and looks like Acoustic Research. Any comments?

    This is a very legit brand James.

    High value, expensive, and great reputation.
    I am sorry, I have no opinion on the matter. I am sure you do. So, don't mind me, I just want to talk audio and pie.

    The White Van guys tried (and were successful) with names like "Acoustic Reference" in their ploy James, and that was close enough to AR to sell a few off the truck.

    Audio Research is the real deal. Nothing wrong with a little skepticism in my book.
