I am not at all sure about the direction that B&W went during the 80's and 90's. I think of the quality and workmanship that went into my DM70's and then look at a modern creations such as the the 700 series. How many of these will still be going strong in 30 years? Think of the current Nautilus, how much would the DM70 models cost if they were manufactured today (shudders)? For more on the DM70 go here.
