The adage "you get what you pay for" is certainly not reliable. I prefer to say that you get what you pay for if you do your homework and you are lucky. Doing your homework takes much of the luck out of the equation.
For ME the adage ( you get what you pay for ) is reliable 99% of the time and yes there are exceptions, so is the adage ( when it's to good to be true, most of the time it isn't )

Chord CPM-2600 amplifier - - - Chord One cd player - - - Acoustat 1+1s speakers - - - ( 1984 )
Life without Acoustat is possible BUT i would never dare

Re: The Official $1,000 Speaker Evaluation / Home Audition Event

I just wanted to say THANK YOU to all who contibuted to this informative and detailed listening evaluation. I wasn't concerned which speaker would win, in my honest opinion I know the A5 is a winner for me, every day I am reminded of that when I sit back and enjoy what I'm hearing and not thinking to myself should I have purchased a more expensive model? I don't let these things get in the way of my enjoying what I have. Thanks again to all you guys for this remarkable adventure, looking forward to the next one.
Best Regards, Jeff
