I dread to think what makes a system sound 'organic'.  Bull****  maybe?

haha, well to be honest your first three cliches are actually true more than 30% of the time with budget kit, perhaps this started as people formed opinions from budget kit? 

Had no idea about the dark chocolate, my system needs a treble lift...should I paint my shelf white?  :?
