Some Americans are quite mellifluous, some even have a sense of humour! I'll be selective, I certainly don't want my hifi to act in any way their current chieftain. Things European do seem, on the whole, to be more sophisticated. I like metric. Not only does it give a modern, accurate sound, the units all ft together with less fudging.

It's the sound that's important after all. Objective measurements mean nothing..
