Where's Ralph Nader when you need him?
I just got an email from someone in another Toll Brothers property down in Florida. It appears that they have the same problem we do with our cable: it's in mono. Yes, you heard me right. It's the year 2002, and my cable provides me state of the art sound from 1982. I thought we were the only ones, but it appears Toll does this everywhere.

These are luxury homes, some costing upwards of a million dollars (not mine, mind you, but...). It would be like buying a new home and having only cold water. Would you settle for that if you'd just spent a million dollars?

It wouldn't be an issue, except the cable bill is part of the HOA dues, so you can't not pay it. Going to satellite means paying double-duty. Spread the word. If you care at all about audio or home theater, or even enjoy watching TV, don't buy a home in a Toll Brothers property. If anyone who reads this blog writes for a newspaper and wants to interview me on this topic, I would be more than happy to speak with you.
