Postscript: They went with the HTD Level 3 'Y' 5.1 combo in light cherry. High WAF that matched their decor, HTD pays return shipping if they don't like 'em, and the price was right. Thanks for the replies. :D

During an electronics segment, Corey Greenberg recommended a Cambridge system as the least expensive HT-in-a-box


Where the heck is Corey now?

He and I used to tear up the Audiophile Network Bulletin Board years before there even was an internet.

Love to catch up if I could find him.  What a monkey he was.  and a very good writer, even then.  

Fun to read. :mrgreen:

Is that the same Corey Greenberg that was with Home Theater and some of the other magazines a few years ago?  How old a guy is he?  I always thought he was maybe in his 20s when he was writing in the magazines.

Don't know how old he is, but when we used to woop it up on The Audiophile Network, (TAN) it was 1982-84 maybe.

Lot of heavy hitters used to drop in and shoot the sh*t.  Saul Marantz, John Curl, the guy who started NHT (I can never remember his name) and a load of other "old timers" in the industry.

Yeah Corey has been around.  I know for a while he was at HT and also AUDIO.  Has a "barbed" sense of humor and a great pair of ears.

Then that would be the guy I remember.  I'm surprised that he was kicking around in 1982-84.  From the looks of him in HT I would have figured him for junior high in the early 80s.

:lol:  :lol:  That's the same picture he was using 10 years ago.

I'll see if I can contact him and get him to "pen" a few over here.

It would be like old times. :mrgreen:

Yep, that's the guy.

But John, looks like it wasn't bryl cream.  He just stuck with the high school yearbook picture for the past 30 years.   :lol:

I sent him an e-mail via the website (who knows if he'll get it).

If he does and shows up, he is a fun, and opinionated guy to read and post with. :)

If he does show, we'll razz him about the picture. :oops:

I don't know about that but he was good at HT magazine.

If he did an anti-BOSE article that may explain why he isn't running with the big rags now.

He has a gift for writing fun stuff.

He used to be on the back inside page of SR/S&V too.  I remember thinking..."who is this punk kid."  (same picture)  I could never disagree with much of what he said.  It would be great to get him to stop by here for a little while anyway.

If he has the time, he'd surely fit in.

We'll see if he gets the message.
