"A foolish company of fools..."

Given their sales, diverse portfolio of interesting products (some not audio related), and overall acceptance of what they make, they may not be that foolish.
"TU 717 tuner"

I have one and, a few years ago, I bought another one for someone. Neither of them ever opened and had any work done of them. Both still work flawlessly, including lights. Maybe Stereo Review was better than Consumer Report at recommending well-performing and reliable products.
"Testing a Pontiac the same as a Porsche. Hilarious."

Around 2008, or 2009, Pontiac G8 GXP (manual, not automatic version) was anything but hilarious even when compared to Porsche of that time. You could even put passengers and luggage in. word....

the TU717 was the best thing they made...and we sold many of those into a market 50 miles from decent FM programming ( Cleveburg or Toledo )

we were a dealer ( Audio Connection in Ohio )

Audionics of Oregon outsold the other stuff 10:1... IF the customer..listened....
