Not an expression I would use but I suppose it is fair enough depending on
what you mean by "competently". :-)
It's a sentiment that often arises, that I don't agree with either
(hence the quotes). Made by some that can't separate the differences
between AV/audiophile goodness, specifications and bull****, and deride
all as the latter. Sadly influences like Russ Andrews & Co make that
polarisation sport a bit too easy.
That, and my quip about Panasonic was made in jest. No, I wouldn't
spring for Sony and Panasonic stuff, I'd want some enjoyment with
technical things away from the basic cooking wine experience.
But maybe that might suit the customer?
We have no idea exactly what are the current speakers, configuration,
size of room, types of films, sources, technical comprehension of the
user, whether he cares for Dolby Digital or DTS, has a good budget,
plans for future expansion, wishes integration with HiFi, streaming etc...
Someone inexperienced recommending something for someone else based on
dumbed down top-10 list hearsay, particularly on brand names, is the
beginnings of madness (or a subscription for Which, sadly same thing).
Plenty of good AV HiFi dealers about for serious made to measure
