Richard,

You know, I alwatys enjoy listening to other enthusiasts' systems and purposely avoid getting too judgemental - just far too many variables and preferences and a different point on the journey to map read - far easier I've found, to relocate to the kitchen or patio but in any event out of harm's way, quoff the red wine, nibble at some eats and if all else fails, move on...

That said; I am totally intolerant (sp) when it comes to listening to a poor hi-fi show dem. These dems rooms are supposed to be set-up by industry pro's... they do this for a living(?) and I find it unacceptable when my ears are being assaulted and I feel compelled to pass comment on the dem and the host starts excusing his p-poor sound on the 'hotel room' etc etc.

The worst dems I have heard to date were of Avantegard Trios... what a waste. It was a relief to get back to my own music room and hear these speakers sing. The other thing that I find great these days, is that I come away from most hi-fi shows, and remain on the balance, content with my own system.

Awww, just getting too old...

:-)
