Welcome to IWETHEY!

New +6, Perspicuity; yeah, there's a plethora of tin-ears nowadays ... and nary a Live/Recorded demo..
..often because of (aforesaid) the problem of all the arbitrary tweaking for instruments which have no-Native-sound.

Apparently the 'Audio-phools' stores, collectively haven't learned of that manifestly-Fair comparo, or can't get enough small $$$-retailers to provide a few just-$$ to revive that: as its main appeal is to those who choose Classical, go to concerts without Flashing-Neon in order to hear familiar=timeless music they were introduced to as tykes ..or just "found" was to their liking.

Classical will never die, but its audience now and next will either shrink? (here) or just maybe ..there will be a certain Aha!! epiphany! and greatly increase its %local-audience. (An utterly unpredictable coin toss, I wot.) Bang & Olafson and others in Euro shall continue to make equipment for the very large cohort of Classical folk across Euro, so there's that. And where I'd go, had I a surplus of $$ in the Ex-Pat-escape fund..
New Bang & Olafson? They made the speakers in my laptop.

New There's your problem.
You should have got a laptop with Bang and Olufsen speakers instead.

Hows your Rowlecks watch doing? Still driving the Ferrararri?

Srsly, tho, B&O almost certainly didn't actually make your laptop speakers; they just agreed to have their name put on them.
New I'll hand that spelling nit off to Ashton ... Here you go!

New Mea culper, fellow smartass-picker-of-nits. And:
I just happen to have visited Olufsen's factory (and test instruments lair) many moons ago.. impressive to any audio nerd; also brought back an FM-receiver--a class act free of gew-gaw facades of 'Muricans who-liked-Chrome-on-everything just a few decades back.

(Last I heard, it's still running along)--after one repair also moons ago.. But it would be Purty, were it relegated to a canape-tray on your fine Irish linen tablecloth: it's Rosewood-cased--now an endangered species along with Us.
