    Alex, I think the thing that you need to clarify is what s the real purpose of your demo at The Show Is there a product or service that you plan sell?

      Alex,

      I think the thing that you need to clarify is what's the real purpose of your demo at The Show

      Is there a product or service that you plan sell?

      >    Wanted to clarify just what happened when John Atkinson visited my room. He didn't request for his media to be played so I'd decided to put on some classical music from our back-up disc. John picked a couple of tracks which I played. The problem was I was unable to change the volume! As we discovered later, the level was at least 7db less then optimal (I say at least because we couldn't go any higher as before the show I set a cap on the volume to protect equipment from possible accidents). At the end of the day when we listened to those recordings with Robert Lee, we figured out that the volume at the demonstration for JA was way too low. He is a great professional but I still think unfamiliar recordings along with low volume played their role.

He is an analogue guy but I told him that the source didn't matter all that much in our room (you can only imagine his reaction to that:-). He brought his own CD with a good old classical recordings and listened to a few tracks. The only comment he made was for a little weak bottom end which I knew about as I set it that way to avoid the boominess but keep overall response flat. I am extremely anxious to know what his impression was in detail and am planning to ask for it later.
