[quote]Wouldn’t be the Pioneer Andrew Jones soundbar would it?[/quote]It wasn't, but I just read the reviews on that one and it looks like it blows a cap all the time, too. I know there are millions of satisfied soundbar owners out there, and I was too for a while, but I now believe that it's ju...

re: Statue of Vladimir Lenin in Seattle - Korkstand

More a joke than a monument to a Lost Cause movement.[/quote]But it's so fun to pretend that half the country worships this Lenin statue in order to justify my view that my tax dollars should be spent ma...

[quote]Yamaha YAS-209[/quote]I looked at that one, and I found this in the Amazon comments: [quote]Soundbar turns itself off after a few minutes...

re: F* a soundbar - Update pg 2 - Korkstand
