When are people going to wake up and realize listening is a skill?
@ozzy62 No. The speakers were the same as well, so was the amp. In this instance I was considering a pre amp. There was not a demo available. As previously stated, for the most part I demo in home.  I have found that when spending 5 figures for eq...
