Yes, I agree Mike. Doing this exercise correctly would require the enormous exertions and efforts you describe. Simply bringing in four pairs of speakers on a giant rotating turntable built into the floor just won’t do it.
Of course that’s easier said than done. First Vince comes along with the Select II blowing away my V. Then I hear the Gobels cables compared to the Nordost. Then in an effort to help my pal pick a good SS amp the CH M1 enters my system and out goes my ARC gear. And last but not least, my 5 year old standard NOLA CGR gets thwarted by allowing Elliot to use my soundroom as a demo for the Aeon Fine until his studio is finished and a pair are now on order.
I’m listening to music again!
This time I SWEAR I’m done just like I said 5 years ago.
