General audio topics that don't fit into specific categories.

A picture is worth a 1,000 words... and not always good words.

Being in the printing and advertising industry, I often look at how ads are laid out and designed to appeal to a target audience.

Spotted an audio advertisement where an image was flopped. Thought to myself "really, a $16,000 tone arm, and the finger lift is on the wrong side". The magazine was a couple years old, so maybe they've fixed it since then. Don't know.

Reminded me of an ad for a Counterpoint, where a glass of wine was sitting on top of one of their pre-amps. I can't find a pic of it, but I do remember Michael Elliot was not impressed.

Slogans have been discussed here before. ("Perfect Sound Forever")

Anyone recall "awkward" images, or photos only, from past years?
