Now works for civilians...
I suspect, more specifically, cleaning dishes in a cheap restaurant with all this soapy foam...

Well, at least they won't burn the kitchen down. We needed that last week in Chinatown. Did you know Audioville burnt to the ground?

I saw the AV display but they said the building was empty. They said there was asbestos in the old movie theatre and that all electricity was off.

Was Audioville still running their business in there ?

Not recently, but I always think, errr, thought of that building as the Audioville building. I didn't know anything else about it. Just that I drooled over many speakers there over the years... Always the same thing, I could afford the speakers, just not *have* them.

I remember dragging you there to listen to some Totem Acoustics Model 1s in the listening room to show you what a "soundstage" is. I think you were more impressed by the CRT HDTV sets they had. I wanted one of those too, too heavy. My CRT worship had its limits, I suppose.

Yes, I clearly remember. It dawned on my it was in that specific building when I saw the AV sign in the news.

BTW, I did end up owning a CRT HDTV between 2010 and 2014, a Hitachi 34". Lost it due to the hospital incident...

Aw man, those things are sweet! Guess they only made them for a year or two...

@Gyro
I still own and frequently use a 20" RCA standard def. CRT TV.
