Only reason I took notice again recently was because in the latest edition of Stereo Sound (Japanese audio magazine), an audio reviewer renowned for his love of dubious audio equipment (Krell and Magico speakers etc) reviewed the GIPs and was shocked to realize that the sound he was used to listening sounded wooden and slow in comparison. I was shocked at his honesty (my expectations of reviewers are maybe just too low), and given that GIP spends virtually nil on advertising (compared to the Krells and Magicos), a miracle.
John, this is very interesting observation, that for sharing. Unfortunately it does not say anything about GIP results. I do not know who the reviewer was but if he was renowned for his love of Krell, Magico and alike then he suppose to experience the very same shock from a consumer table radio for $50. This is not allegory and this is very well tested concepts. A good “table radio” delivers far more sophisticated sound and the Krell/Magico Morons are just too much full of themselves to realize it. If I were you then I would not be surprised by his “honesty”. Thos people do not have honesty as they are terminally incarcerated by pathetics of own mind.  Their “honesty” is a marketing move to demonstrate to the readers that they can be different. That all is done between the Krell and Magico major releases. Wait for Krell announce their new need to be sold model and your reviewer will be back with his Vaseline metaphors.

Reviewers and table radios

You are right I think. He confuses his followers with this GIP review, his fans who sold their Tannoys and bought his recommendd Krell Lats and Magicos, but they will fall in love with him all over again when he tells them the latest Magicos got the bass faster, or how the Krells got better driven by the latest 1000w amps.

By the way, what is your table radio? Is amazing, but I was once very upset when my father-in-law's table radio by Sony sounded too magical, and just yesterday, I was again bothered by the fact that the sound in the bathroom of a hotel (speaker in the ceiling) sounded too good! And if you have ever been to Tokyo Disneysea resort, you might be impressed by the sound quality of the open-air PA system playing all kinds of orchestral music from the Disney movies (these scores remind me so much of Mahler for some reason) - I liked the sound so much I asked what they were using. (turned out to be professional speakers by Meyer)
