    I remember Nascarmann, very good guy. I believe that it was YOU (Jesse) who responded to my first post. You were the first to respond to many newcomers. Thank you!

    You've been on Club Polk too long if...you remember meeting Miller Lite Scott at Polk HQ and we were somewhat the "newbies" at the time.

    We actually got to meet the Polk reps, designers and sound engineers.

    I remember they had this one system that never hit the market....it was some sort of wired, yet wireless system. One plug for both speakers and a wireless plugged in surround.

    At that point in time, they actually listened to feedback.

    Vaguely, Carl?

    That's the best I can offer bro'.

    That obviously was not in the hallway of "history". Stu's office, perhaps?

    Hang on a minute...that was in the second studio room where they had everything draped off with black curtains and the 5 or 7.1 system that sounded pretty damned good?

    That was in the hallway of the offices in the back. There was also a mini SRT system model back there.

    Yeah that's funny when I went in to Circuit City and bought my 27 inch TV I was looking at a Hitachi TV that had a thousand lines of resolution. The salesman told me it'd be a waste of money to buy it since nobody was ever going to use a thousand lines of resolution on a TV. Now look what we have for TVs his foresight was pretty dead.

    I didn’t buy there, but when I made my first major audio purchase I compared the rm6750 to the monitor 30s at circuit city. I bought the monitor setup online. On the one hand I admit that o am part of the problem of b&m stores going away. On the other hand, adapt or die...

    And this is why this forum is what it is. A wealth of knowledge dating back to pre circuit city day.

    Circuit City had been around since 1949, though the concept of big-box didn’t happen until the 1970’s
