Shitty YouTube videos: No longer the exclusive domain of drunken meth heads blowing up Pyle car subs and eBay merchants demonstrating the remarkably unexceptional sound of their mid-fi wares!

Behold, Harman itself has joined in on amateur hour:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zYQGqKpDnk

Watch in amazement as the magnificent splendor of this $100K+ system is displayed for all the world to see via the technological marvel that is full 480p quality YouTube video!

The reviews are in:

"Stunning!"
- New York Times

"Breathtaking!"
- Consumer Reports

"Not for the faint of heart or those prone to motion sickness!"
- AARP Magazine

"I shit myself again!"
- Al Roker, Television Personality

"I heard of JBL - they make iPod docks"
- Man on the street, Arkansas

"The Devil's work"
- LDS News

Watch today! You simply must see it to believe it!

All kidding aside, nice as always to see them represented, and yes, I'd kill a man with my bare hands for that system.

I like the Boz Scaggs track "Thanks to you" from Dig - that was one of the demo tracks
when the Harmin' trailer did a demo in Virginia last year ...
but them Yarbles yacking through the song are just annoying!

Thats the marvel of Harman marketing , still selling beanzzzz

FWIW it was like that in the early 80's too. Beatrice foods have a LOT to answer for.

I like the entire disc, good stuff. Gives my 2235s a nice work out ;)

I got to hear it in person. But, they had this one guy with the remote in his hand sitting on the couch with his significant other. So I couldn't get into the hot spot. Anyway, they looked very pleased, haha. :D

Ugh, and he probably got popcorn butter all smeared on the remote and left little kernels and bits all over the couch too. I hate those people - they're the worst!

That was me and my wife dude... and you're just jealous because we didn't offer you any popcorn. It was gourmet with melt in your mouth kernels so - "look ma! no kernels!"

My wife hit that remote before and after with hand sanitizer. That's just how she is.

So that explains the alcohol smell - I figured the demonstrators were hitting the bottle; I would if I had to listen to the same damned album over and over and over again.

...I would if I had to listen to the same damned album over and over and over again.That would be painful. I don't know how these guys do it. Answer the same inane questions over and over, playing the same 90 seconds of this followed by that... they deserve hazard pay.
