I'd not sure how you'd find 7 audiophiles that would loan their $10K+ speakers to such a test. You're telling me that they would remove their pride and joy from the "pet free, smoke free, child free" environment they're always bragging about on Audiogon and take them to some warehouse to be knocked around in a speaker test? Just the scratches on the binding posts would be enough to drive these guys crazy...
