    Thanks for posting that. That is a great article and don't know why more businesses don't do this often in the US. I have to listen all day long at work to these tinny, distorted JBL speakers.

    Know there was one gym in the US who outfitted their facilities with Wilson speakers. Anyone know of any other places/businesses like this here in the US that have done similar things?

      This is popular in Japan, usually an Izakaya (cocktails and pub food). I've seen one with Avantgarde Duos, the 'guest' can choose any one of several hundred original jazz LPs to play over the system.

    I think I love almost any room with a pair of Tannoys in them. Absolutely gorgeous!

      My opinions rely on listening mainly to acoustical, non amplified music. I do not care about electronic music or listening to rock at stadium levels, but I enjoy Mahler and Shostakovitch.

        There is just something wrong with that picture. I could come up w/ some ridiculous narratives, but none of them would be publicly appropriate.
