It's great to see that there's an audio show.
Coming over from Europe was shocked how little there was around Hifi in the DFW area give so many people who play instruments, sing in church choirs and listen to Country and Rock music.
Is it possible to audition items like B&W speakers, Cambridge, Roksan locally?
Stores I've visited seem to just have big TVs and surround sound, with little emphasis on stereo and a big emphasis on pushy salesmen hungry for big commissions rather than any referrals or repeat business.
Somewhat similarly to automobiles, there seem to be a lot of one trick items that maximize one thing - number of channels, screen size, general 'bigness' or 'sheer expense' rather than a mix of elements including value.
