maybe you should do the same
My location is plainly listed in the "I'll demo my speakers..." thread, and the "I'll demo my subs... " threads, for anyone to see, that is potentially looking to hear others' systems. I think it is one of the most underutilized features on this forum.
If I were to ask for opinions, as a new user, I would put the location in my request, and I'm merely suggesting it, not only for the OP, but for the potential benefit of any other NEW MEMBER that may happen to read this thread. Had it been there, and been local, I would have offered exactly that, via PM. I'm sure you can appreciate that, as well as my 'apprehension' to just post my exact location, as well as a big fat flag waving "This is what's in my house... and here's where I am...". For safety's sake... but also being willing to help someone else out, especially when it comes to being able to listen to something that you just CANT buy in your local Wally-world. And I'm sure there are other members of this forum that would not be willing to openly post in either of those 2 threads, for exactly the reasons I listed, but MIGHT be willing to offer a listen, privately, via PM, IF the person asking was nearby.
I hope I didn't offend anyone. I'm truly willing to give back to this forum, because I received great help from others when I first joined. Way more knowledge and wisdom here than I could ever hope to have without others' help.
