RE: Can the Audio Research VTM150 story finally be told?

You have me puzzled, as Mikey Fremer didn't review the Audio Research
VTM150. He did review the VTM-200 - see link below - in 2001. I don't
remember a fracas, though I think the late Bill Johnson wasn't happy with
the review.

I tend to post the manufacturer's comment only when the review is negative.
