    Does it not bug people when companies continue to use a certain model number on a totally different design from the originals? or using a model years down the line that they have already used before.. I also get irritated my Mk.1, Mk.II etc Build something right in the first place & leave alone. If they feel an improvement is to be had later on build something new.

    While were are at it.People that put bookshelf speakers on stands.

    Can i just say im not purposely being a rebel with these kind of posts that people seem to think i am but the above is just a general irritation with me as other things are..

    Yes to the first bit. Got nothing against speakers on stands though. For me I don't like the names for things. Every bit of klt should just be a designation like XA065. And the names get lamer every year.
    Current Lash Up:

    *Sony SCD XB790QS* Nelson Pass DCB1 / Krell KSA100 mkII * JM Lab Electra 926 *

    I don’t think you are being a rebel (not at all), I think you like complaining for the sake of it.

    I'm with you on the re-use of model numbers. As an example, there are four different B&O Beogram 3000 turntable models!

    Yep & it gets confusing when you are talking about a products for someone to think you are on about the other/others with the same model number..

    Yes to your first question, if nothing else it will lead to confusion. repeated model number use later on I have not come across, unless perhaps decades later and done for reminiscence reasons.
    I see nothing wrong with MK1 and Mk2 etc., because these imply an insubstantial redesign, and improved model based on the original.

    I cannot stand standmounts because they pretend to not use up much space, whilst in fact using as much as a floorstander. I suggested to ATC that their use of a 1 cubic foot stand under their hundreds was silly, asking what the space could be used for, perhaps the cat could sleep under it.
    It could be used for a better bass alignment with no loss of room space.

    Too much yes-yes stuff everywhere especially with the pressure of political correctness stifling the expression of truth.
