I think clothing is a difficult comparison as the tech doesn't really change that much. Maybe cars is better...there are some new manufacturing methods such as the Crystal Cable use of gold and the monofilament tech from Nordost. Nordost would be Ferrari - high performance but really spendy pricing. Cardas would be Porsche - long history, great performance, fair price. Kimber might be BMW - Very good performance and decent price. Blue Jeans might be some of the sporty models of VW - high value per dollar. Jorma Prime would be Bentley - insane pricing but terrific performance and luxury build. Harmonic Technology would be Audi - great performance for the dollar, decent tech. Argentum Acoustics (part of XLO company) might be Spyker but without the price, new brand but exciting sound. Kubala-Sosna might be Aston Martin - luxury pricing and performance. These comparisons make absolutely no sense and seem completely subjective. Pls elaborate on the difference btwn the Bentley and Aston Martin vis-a-vis the audio tech angle. Also, where does Radio Shack fit in? Saturn? Honda? Chevy? Finally, I was thinking of buying some new speaker wire for Xmas and wanted something along the lines of a Toyota. What would you suggest?
