Nobody's ever had to give you so many different stereo systems to choose from. We had to. Would you buy a stereo from someone you hadn't heard much about? Not many people would. And that's our problem. Although we've got the best values in packaged component stereos you can find, not many people have ever heard of us. So we had to do something about it. For one thing, we had to design the largest collection of stereo systems you're likely to find anywhere. And we had to engineer those systems chock-full of the finest components and circuitry we could put together for the money. We had to make ourselves sound better than all those other systems you have heard about. So you'd start hearing about us. Check over all these systems.
