Opulent probably describes the prices quite well.

The demonstration rooms are rather odd. Plain walls, hardwood floors, a veritable hall of mirrors. Open baffle speakers too. Very Bauhaus chic in design, probably as bad a starting point as you can get from the point of view of acoustics.

Couldn't you find space for just one post-war receiver, Mike... A Tandberg Huldra for example? But if we all had exactly the same interests, just think of the prices and the queues!

Edit: Just seen that pre-war one Nick spotted. Dear heavens that thing is hideous! I offer the use of a big propane torch to get it going!
