Kick ass review and very well thought out! Thanks for sharing!!
edit: I thought the same thing about the premium sound when I checked it out the other week. I was not impressed with it...then I fiddled with the EQ and turned it up. It got clearer...the more I turned it up, the clearer it got. I was amazed how the clarity stayed with it being REALLY LOUD. They did a good job on it! I think the clarity is better than the Mark Levinson system on the wifes Lexus, but I think the Levinson beats it in bass, although the Levinson is not as clear at ubber high volume.
