Demo'ing Monitors

Where do folks go to demo good monitors? I'm talking Tannoy, ADAM, Genelec. I'm in the Washington DC area and in-store options are pretty ugly (yes, GC...not exactly a desireable option, either environment- or selection-wise).

Look around for a studio that has what you're interested in and book an hour or two. If you tell them what you're doing they may give you a break on some time in off-peak hours.

By them all, choose, than sent the unwanted back to the retailer... i dont know if its ok in USA, but in germany you can do this without a problem.

I agree that listening in you own room is the best way to choose a monitor....

vintage King

I bought my Barefoot mm27's thru Vintage King.

They sent out a pair of demo's for a couple of days at my studio.
I just had to pay for the shipping.

I've done a lot of demo/purchases with them and find that
both Mike Nehra and Andrew Nehra awesome to work with....

I'm sure they can help you out.thumbsup
