Default Re: Listening session

When CDs first came out I was "lucky" enough to win one of the first CD players from a Hi Fi magazine (can't remember which one now) after rushing out and buying some CDs to play and being thoroughly disappointed I returned it to the manufacturers as faulty, When it came back as "no fault found" I couldn't believe it because all the CD reviews were heaping glowing praise on these ultimate sounding silver spinners. I thought that I must be wrong but slowly it dawned on me that it was a case of "the king's new clothes".
Too many people believe what they are told instead of being independent enough to make their own judgements. How many people have bought a product as a result of a review and never listened first?
