I hate to disagree, I think 99% of us agree that P and T do the best RMAF report year in year out, partly because they give a report, or rather an opinion. They say what and why they like a room and how it compares with others. What interests me is other attendees opinion on those given by Pez and Tyson, where they think they may be wrong, what great rooms they may have missed etc. As for superior High End rooms, dealers, I hate it when I am assessed as I walk in, my wallet is secretly weighed and found wanting, then I am ignored. You really do get some mind numbingly arrogant, dismissive people, under theses circumstances. It really makes it hard to give their system a fair audition.
....hmmm....great rooms that were missed....but to draw a Best of from a very edited list of rooms is not really fair to all the great rooms that for whatever reason weren't lucky enough to make it to the T/P list...
I also think people are taking this FAR too seriously.
....all that being said really appreciate the great effort that T/P put into their show report...it truly is a work of love and I look forward to it each year....but to draw a Best of from a very edited list of rooms is not really fair to all the great rooms that for whatever reason weren't lucky enough to make it to the T/P list...Cheers
I also think people are taking this FAR too seriously. Me and Jason are just a couple of imperfect guys with definite biases in our listening preferences, which overlap a bit, but not entirely. Part of the reason we write in such an irreverent manner is to undercut our own "authority" so that people don't take us so seriously. Maybe we should put in a disclaimer on every one of our posts (modded from South Park):All opinions and pronouncements in this show coverage --even those based on real facts-- are entirely fictional. All sound quality descriptions are captured ... poorly. The following report contains coarse language and due to its content it should not be read by anyone. Thank you, T&P
What T&P do is mostly just their fun. I detect no agenda and I see no reason for anyone to demand accountability or to question their approach. Attending and reporting on RMAF is not a closed option. Anyone who thinks they can do better is free to make an attempt. But ------- these guys are well appreciated because of the infusion of humor and excitement that they bring. Since all of these evaluations and pronouncements are based on subjective preference, there is really nothing to challenge. How can they be wrong about what they like best? How can anyone think that?

So, is there a topic out there labeled Blutto's Best of RMAF so others like him can nit pick.Seriously everyone who attended could start their own topic on the best of and I'd read itjust like I have this one. It is great to have someone (intelligent hopefully) write about theiradventure. I wish I could have gone so that I could join in on the fun of commenting on myopinion of the rooms but alas I must depend on the two intellectuals who put this thing together.Don
When I visited AJ's room he was playing his new 2 way standmounts, with powered 8" and external amp driving the planar, crazy good bass and nice staging and focused vocals. The towers were as good or better than at the 2013 CAF. The big boys were dynamically exciting, deep soundstage, plenty of impact, natural vocals, very detailed, fun to listen to, and a true bargain.
I have never seen any coverage that went into every room, not from the Big guys nor small. I've never seen it, and probably never will. It's pointless to even bring up fairness ... fairness has nothing to do with it, reality does.
....so "fairness has nothing to do with it"?....so exactly what kind of light does that put your placing in the T/P Best of sweepstakes....because if I were ever to "win" something I would definitely like to have everyone see that "win" as fairly achieved....but then again that could just be a failing on my part...Cheers
