    perhaps, but that's not the point...we are talking about audio equipment, not a alarm clock from made in china mart... no man, i don't feel ripped off...i feel left out..i do want fm in the worst way, but i can't have it, damnit. i am hardly upset if that is truly what you are...

    ok, granted...but that still doesn't justify those kind of prices...i mean 80-100k for an amp? how is that possibly worth that much? is there a gold bullion in there from a swiss bank? the real answer is the prices verge on the extremely absurd. fm is made pretty much the same as it was...

    manuel is a great guy, no doubt about it...there should be more people like him in the high end audio business...and regarding the price, only very few can afford fm, andmanuel ain't lowering the prices anytime soon...the prices strike me as elitism and greed. sorry, as cool of a guy as manuel...

    ok, that's cool... well, there's that, and there's purchase of amp or what have you, of brands that are less expensive... sorry, i love fm just as much as the next guy, but the prices are just not realistic for 99 percent of the population...but it's not my company and basically they can...

    FMA in North America

    well, if that was the case, i'd say you got enough entertainment value there! oh yeah, i knew exactly what he was up to...telling me the equipment wasn't worth much because of this and that and blah blah blah. and if i agreed,he would turn around and sell for 3 times the price of what he...

    ok, no problem, i misunderstood... asia? where did you hear this? that means he's not even there to oversee his own factory, leaving it to someone else...to me that is kind of risky. it doesn't show me too much dedication either. oh well... save up for it? until when? when i'm 90 years old...

    A Visit to AudioArts - NYC to hear CH Precision - FM Acoustics - Zellaton

    well, here in the us that 711 II and 255 II combo will set you back well over 100k usd! fm has always been expensive but not nearly to the extent that is now...as a former fm owner, i know. the 244/611 combo + cables ran me roughly 30k back in 1993. oh well, what are gonna do, man! lol...

    FM review

    ok, let me ask you this...where do i find your articles so i may read them, please... i agree with you about manuel, he's a special individual...i say that with all honesty. the man has integrity and is pretty much a cool down to earth guy. he's the mysterious wizard in the swiss alps casting...

    FMA in North America

    that is horrendous, i don't know why you just didn't turn around and walk right out of there rather than listen to his tirades and exaggerated bs... anyway, regarding the fm distributor..again, he took me for a fool on some fm equipment i'll be selling shortly...if interesed, pm me...anyway...

    FM review

    cool, dare i ask how it sounds, lol. i had a 244c and 611 way back when..the 244 was flawless, but the 611..i didn't love it as i should have because it would shut off and go into thermal when pushed hard. i recently read somewhere this was due to a small case and not that much heat...
