Tyson,I'm with you 100%,tell them the truth as it is,no one knows better than you and Pez,cheers.
GG (can I call you GG?) I should take a step back and say that I have no special access to the truth. Just a set of ears and some pretty strong biases, all wrapped up in a flawed human being (aren't we all!).
The point you're getting at is important... everyone has different preferences and harshly condemning something like you're the final arbiter of taste comes across as arrogant and presumptuous. At a show you're just one guy with limited experience of what you're hearing. I'm not saying you can't be critical, just that it can be done with taste and class. Anyway, I didn't mean to turn this into this kind of debate... if you want to be an arrogant, abrasive, rude know-it-all, it's your right... but there may be consequences.
I would like to say Thank You to everyone who provided coverage for RMAF.I wasn't there but would have loved to have been and I appreciate everyone taking the time to post their pics and express their opinions of what was going on.
Look who's talking,you have been expressing your opinions on how many threads (I lost count) and you seem very confident backing them up with pics and commentary but when I express my opinion you label me as arrogant...
As a responsible writer, If you're going to presume to publish best of show designations, you need to give all the contenders a chance. The OP obviously didn't even go to all the rooms he should have. I wouldn't mind if he didn't like some of the rooms but you can't stand in judgment of what you don't know. As far as the self serving goes, I am not affiliated with Purity or Endeavor but was quite impressed with their products. As far as the other brands go, I'd match them against the OP's picks any time. A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. Opinions backed by knowledge and experience are better than what the OP offered this time.
As an Orchestral musician, I'm looking for something that sounds as close to what the original source was as is possible and I do recognize that's a very difficult, if not impossible, task.I want a cymbal to soan*und like a cymbal. An oboe to sound like an oboe. Trumpets/FrenchHorns/Trombones/Tubas to sound like Trumpets/FrenchHorns/Trombones/Tubas. Every instrument has it's own sound. Does that instrument sound like that instrument? I think double reed instruments and pianos are difficult to reproduce well.Yes, how the orchestra/band/musician was recorded does make a difference, and a good system will tell you which recordings were poorly done and which one's weren't.

You beat me to it!I grew up in band (Clarinet) and attended many live concerts, performances, and competitions while in High School, which is how I base my judgements (even though I now listen primarily to Pop, Rock, and Alternative rather than Classical or Jazz).I remember many times at Rock Concerts where the sound was pretty awful and caused me to cringe, while others in attendance talked about how great the sound was. Different strokes for..........
Actually, I do appreciate that NA posted here and after rereading, most of the the "reviews" I didn't find too many that were over the top negative in a mean way. His review of the DC10 Audio Berlin, "This was the worst sound of the show. If you imagine a cardboard tube glued to the front of a tweeter that is similar to what these sounded like."seemed to be harsh.
Best show report I've read in a long time. Refreshing honest opinions..and everyone's entitled to theirs. Keep up the good work.cheers,AJ
Say you had a room at RMAF and this guy No Audiophile, of whom you don't know, walked in and said after 5 minutes what he said about the dc10 room. Would you take his criticism seriously?
Do you listen to Tyson and Pez
