For sale is a Boston Micro 90 5.1 speaker system, rated as the best satellite/sub system by many audio magazines. It is in near mint condition, it sold for $1500 in 1996. This is from the creator of the system, Steve Feinstein. The entire article is at https://www.audioholics.com/editorials/ba-mr90
"The MR90 was introduced in October 1996, in time for holiday shipments that year. We wanted to get it reviewed by Stereo Review magazine as quickly as possible. Stereo Review was the industry-leading magazine and a great review from them—complete with juicy quotes that you could use in your upcoming magazine print ads—was a great way to jump-start a product’s market life.

So, we contacted Stereo Review and they said, sure, they’d love to review it. They gave it to Julian Hirsch (their senior reviewer) to do the lab measurements and basic listening tests and they’d have us send a full 5-speaker theater setup to David Ranada (their resident technical wizard) for a full home theater evaluation. Stereo Review’s two top guns. The pressure was on. Make or break. If we were “damned with faint praise,” as the saying goes, Andy would have my head. Only a flat-out 5-star review would do the trick.
The review was beyond 5-star. Way beyond. Strangers in the elevators were talking: “I have to get over to the BA booth and check out that new Micro Reference 90. Have you seen that review?” Yeah, I gotta get there too.”
Julian Hirsch’s half of the review was great enough, but David Ranada’s portion of the review contained the most memorable line: “By a wide and clearly audible margin, the Boston Acoustics MR90 is the best I have ever reviewed.”

By a wide and clearly audible margin, it’s the best. The Best. By a wide and clearly audible margin.
