One should be careful not to assume too much or draw too many conclusions from any particular set of manufacturers that happen to share a room at an audio show. These arrangements are made for a number of good reasons; the people have developed personal relationships and like each other (it is kind of like having a room mate), there is an agreement to share the cost of the room, the is a new hot product everyone is interested in by one of the manufacturers, the equipment sounds good together (synergy), etc. Also, as important as those stated above is the ability of the team to set up the room to sound good. So there are a combination of personal, business and sound system reasons that cause manufacturers to come together and they rotate often for the same reasons.
