I know for sure that having a Piano or Guitar in the room causes audible ringing of those Instruments.
One dealer in my area not only keeps multiple pairs of speakers in the room, but also a grand piano. It's a loft style place which he also uses for piano teaching and recording, and the acoustics are terrible for auditioning speakers anyway.
The best dealer in my area never has more than one pair of speakers in any of their demo rooms, or at least none that I have seen when I'm there. A couple of other dealers in my area have a main demo room with just one pair of speakers, and then some secondary demo rooms where you might see two systems set up, e.g. one long wall and one short wall, or one system set up but another pair of speakers tucked away to the sides or back of the room.
The craziest places I've seen were in the big electronics shopping areas of Hong Kong and Tokyo, where it seems commonplace for audio shops to have way more gear than what can reasonably fit into their space. The worst I saw was one floor of an electronics department store in Akihabara that literally had a long wall packed full with dozens of expensive high end speakers, and there was no demo room, just a love seat in the middle of floor surrounded by shelves and stands of stuff. For auditions they just pulled a pair a pair of speakers out a foot or two. I watched some older gentleman trying to listen quietly to a violin piece with a dozen or so shoppers noisily milling around the floor.
I'm 99.9 % sure I have that Linn tips on Hi-fi paper. Between shoveling snow I'll try to dig it out tonight. There are some other things that might be of interest in that.
I try not to be a horder but I've never thrown anything away concerning stereo stuff away.
Good eye, or ear BubbaM!...Mark K.
because we're gonna demo the Air Tight Bonsai's next."
Yep. that's what I'd expect to hear in just about every high-end stereo store I've ever visited. :-)
So all the speakers have a common board. with shorting plugs for all except one pair. And the amp sockets with wire pigtails to plug in the one speaker pair in use. (naturally without buffering.. so the chances of blowing up some amps, or speakers is to look forward to...)
If one used reasonable wires.. It MIGHT not kill the sound more than having all the speakers resonating. LOL
