Yeah, I'm not surprised that Mark Levinson beat the S80's system to the first place. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"> Maybe if the S80 was still using the same systems that the C70 has, it might still have a chance.<BR>Then again, Mark Levinson is pretty much as good as you can get for home audio system(unless you are a real audiophile have some sick custom made collector's equipment), can't really beat that with just Alpine or some other mainstream brand.<BR>Just kinda surprised that even Mark Levinson is like the new kid on the block for car audio, it was able to maintain its reputation.<BR>Arggghhhhh...I just can't wait to get my car back today and listen to the system in the C..<BR>

I think that the C70 Vert should have won for the best top-down sound system, beating the Porsche 911 Cabriolet/Porsche Boxster (Bose) system. Maybe they didn't consider it in their tests?<P>-Drew
