The Case Against Show Reports

This is a post on Stereophile from 1985 that I found while I was at the High End Audio Channel on Mattters (being amazed that my lowly lazy self generates more content in my spare time than the other magazines – making us look like we are hogging all the attention over there)

Oh, links:

High End Audio on Mattters

Needless to say I agree with J. Gordon Holt’s Rebuttal [first time I ever agreed with that guy, I think].

A show is a beauty contest, and it is about presentation, customer relations, sound, aesthetics, reliability, … EVERYTHING. And from this a person can get a good feel for the quality of a manufacturer and about what they value.

CES 2010 is coming right up, so this is a great (re)post on their part.
