circle of confusion


Why does listed equipment have to be viewed through a hole?  Bad direction for serious buyers to have this 
type of obfuscation!

Upper right hand of the page, there is a button with 3 parallel lines, click it and choose Classic View. It will save it's self and become your default.
@dill , of course you're correct.
But it still begs the question, why do we have to look at equipment thru a porthole? What purpose does it serve? None.
"why do we have to look at equipment thru a porthole?"
We don't have to with the "Classic View "option. Maybe the default setting should be the Classic View or list view, not the Gallery view.
@dill , I totally agree with you. I only use the Classic View. My point is there are websites that provide a thumbnail view which is aesthetically pleasing, eg, Ebay includes a clear photo and description, or SkyFi...

I see what you mean, your right, there just isn't a real reason for for the fish eye view when there are better views available. I agree, it really is silly and probably boils down to money.

Where? I don't see it.
Yes, fewer electrons results in large cost savings.

@lowrider57 I agree with you 100%. The images on SkyFi Audio web site are clear, a brief detail on what it is and click on it and you get the whole thing. So so much easier and user friendly to use.

(and Fernando from SkyFi is one super guy to deal with!!)

Open the AudiogoN home page, enter a search for a brand, it should show the grid view with the wacky hole photos.
Now, in the upper right hand of the page, just below the yellow line there is a button with 3 parallel lines, next to the date listed window, click it and choose Classic View. It will save it's self and become your default.






Easy to change... follow the directions given. All is good in hifi land.
Ah, got it thanks fellas. Going (deaf, dumb &) blind.
But it doesn't change the fact that that "porthole" view was silly to begin with, and UGLY!

Tell Audiogon they insist on keeping this stupid format as well.
