    Re: RMAF 2018 Official Photos & Room Commentary Thread

    Guys I think this deserves a separate thread for further discussion. This isn't the first time I have heard of large sonic differences in basic networking appliances like switches. So much of this industry is going to the streaming and networked market.

It was only when I replaced the TP Link unit with a Trendnet TEG-S50g the dropouts stopped immediately.

    Since two members have now asked I will give my impression. I heard the Tektons in three rooms and none of them wowed me in any way. This could have been a result of many factors but to me they just sounded like big boxes with a lot of drivers stuffed into them. This could be completely contrary to another persons view but this is why there were so many speaker models of different designs and configuration on display at RMAF. Different likes for different types.
