Are you getting ridiculous offers from new members
"Yea, he might be flipping it on eBay or another site, not surprised he asked for more."I honestly hadn't thought of that.  Well, at least nobody died (as far as I know, anyway). 
Are you getting ridiculous offers from new members
I must be unique.  I once posted an ad for some very good speaker cables with a sentence at the end that read something like this:Approximate quote: "Note to lowballers: GO FOR IT! This is Audiogon and part of the fun is getting stuff cheap!"I wou... 
Store auditioning and then buying on-line from others. How do you feel about it ?
oddiofyl said this: I should say that Audio Visual Therapy in Nashua NH is excellent to deal with and while they didnt have the speakers in the finish i wanted in stock, it was more important that I got to listen to them . They spent time with dif...

Store auditioning and then buying on-line from others. How do you feel about it ? Unethical, shortsighted, and harmful in the long term. 
My experience with the Spatial Audio Hologram M4 Turbo S
"Every time I listen to these speakers I am in awe."  Isn't this what every audiophile is seeking?  Congratulations.  Enjoy Nirvana.

dlcockrum,Thank you. I personally think it’s borderline unethical to do what you describe as some others doing. There’s certainly nothing wrong with "window shopping" in its purest form. The problem is when brick and mortar stores are used SOLELY ...

FWIW: As audiophiles, we need to support "brick and mortar" audio stores, at least the legitimate ones.  Otherwise they'll disappear.  The problem with such places disappearing is that when they disappear, then the following things also disappear:... 
Review: Intuitive Design/Pitcher Sound Labs Summit PSL 624 Speaker
Be careful with them.  They're heavy as hell and easily damaged during shipping.  Aerial Acoustics is a GREAT company, one of the best that I can think of. I've never heard the 10T's, so I can't comment or even speculate on how they might compare ... 
Review: Intuitive Design/Pitcher Sound Labs Summit PSL 624 Speaker
Assuming you have ample power and current to drive them and assuming you have at least a decent (by audiophile standards) front end, then I predict you'll be flabbergasted by their magicality  They do sound much better after about 1/2 hour of warm...

Rest in peace, Mr. Weitzel.  I hope to meet you at some point in the future. 
New Forum Format Sucks
It looks like they've deleted all the user reviews also.   
Bad news for audiophiles?
It would be interesting to see the same study conducted on expert wine tasters. And to take the question even further, what would happen if these experts were told the prices, but THEN told that in some cases the lower priced wine was preferred by... 
Hostility from manufacturers
It's no surprise that several other Odyssey Audio customers have IMMEDIATELY posted their own independent confirmation of the favorable Odyssey Audio comment posted above. I'll certainly echo the comment that Klaus is "genuinely one of the good gu... 
Hostility from manufacturers
Never any hostility from Odyssey Audio and Klaus Bunge. I am the second owner of a pair of Odyssey Extreme Monoblocks. Klaus Bunge gladly transferred the warranty. Klaus Bunge has always, always, ALWAYS given me SPECTACULAR service. He has talked ... 
HiFiMAN HE-1000s.
I am a beta tester for these. They arrived today and I have listened for a short while. Right out of the box they sounded good to great and seem to be opening up and sounding even better very quickly. I haven't been this stoked about an audio prod...
