A carpet, and flooring salesman, was told his sales were the lowest in the store, he takes out ad, claiming audio frendly flooring, his sales skyrocket, looses his job for doing it, but store owner is left with task of explaining the claim is false, my bet is they still come looking for the flooring.
The problem is, the audio group still insists there is flooring that enhanses the experience, i asked an engineer about this issue, and he said yes, flooring does make a difference, so i guess the flooring salesman got it right, at least he had something that would show an improvement, unlike the $30 cover.
Unfortunately, they are NOT joking, and probably make quite a decent living at it! The same geeks who snicker at astrology swallow this hooey hook, line, and sinker!
Now- a request for all of you out there. Columnist Mike Royko, back in the early '70's, wrote a column titled "Wow! What an ear for music." In this column, in his inimitable style, Mike explained the mindset of the REAL stereo enthusiast. If anyone has a link.... I'd love to see that column added to this thread!
