Dom, my frustration is with Tony, nothing to do with my G70 (which I am still happily playing... got two of them now!), or the MS or anything else you would care to make up

It just boils down to having to listen to Tony and leezone play tagteam on the Audya for the last few months. Perhaps you ought to talk to THEM about their frustration? Mind you, talk them into an MS, and be prepared for the same treatment...
