Snell and McIntosh to share resources without becoming McSnell or SnellIntosh

McSnell, SnellIntoshNot that we could ever afford either brand, but we would have cried if either Snell or McIntosh had been given the axe by D&M Holdings. Instead, the parent company is restructuring things so that the two companies will share resources while still maintaining separate commercial identities -- at least for now. Snell will be getting a brand new facility on McIntosh's campus, and frankly given the ultra-high end markets both brands appeal to, this could be a good union. We've never seen McIntosh speakers in the field, even alongside McIntosh electronics, but we've got a feeling that some Snell models would be right at home in certain posh systems.
