I hear you on that. This hobby can get out of control, wondering what else is out there. I have gotten into the habit of every time I want to go out and demo new speakers, I go out and purchase some music or a movie instead. I also am a danger to myself.Phil M said:I stopped listening, I'm too dangerous.
That is always a tough one for me. I get myself in trouble always wanting the better speakers, but the big advantage is you get a chance to hear what good quality sounds like, and can best emulate that within your price range.jhixson said:I try not to listen to great speakers when I am shopping for good speakers. I was auditioning speakers one day and was looking at B&W well before we looked at the ones I was interested in we went into a theater room and the mains were 802Ds. Oh my they made the speakers that I wanted to hear sound poor. They had other high end speakers but since I was shopping and the wife was with me thought I better not listen to any others. THe B&W 802Ds were very nice.
