rajesh, the salk "child board" is just is just an "add on" board to the regular salk circle. it is just called a "child board" to indicate that it isn't a seperate board or circle as they're called around here. jim started it to give people an easy to access place to find speakers currently for sale. as for auditions, it obviously might be hard to hear salks in india, but who knows - someone might pop up here that has some. i might add that you will find a large number of people around here (including me) who broke an 'audiophile' fundamental rule - we bought our salks without hearing them first, based on the HUGE amount of online recommendations (mostly on this board). i don't remember anyone being dissapointed, including me.
