I agree Barney Smith was the most effective speaker bar none. But I was distracted from the get go because he said he worked at the RCA plant in Marion, Indiana. I grew up 50 miles away but it was the television I purchased from high end Tweeter Etc in 1988 that I remember. I brought that TV back for repair three times and found out that Tweeters "will replace if defective" meant they will fix it three times and if it breaks a fourth time we will make sure you are so annoyed by RCA that you will research where the TV was made so that you never purchase anything from them again. That television which would sometimes arc and snap so loud I had to change my underwear was assembled in Marion, Indiana. It did change my life as I did not buy another TV and stopped watching completely for many years.<br><br>Tweeter never replaced it. I began a campaign to ruin their reputation and I thought they went out of business. A Google shows they are not. They are back on my list.<br><br>But I don't blame Barney. RCA cut costs by making crap. That wasn't Barney's decision.<br><br>
My only experience with RCA is with their lovely phono connector. Other than that, they look to be another sad story about the end of American innovation in electronics. Apple is probably the only thing left in terms of design and they don't make anything here anymore.<br><br>-- Cee Bee Double-U
