Well, many brands want to show their TOTL as this is the only place people will see them. If the brand is good, trickle down works well. I mean Paradigm the last 2 shows I was at (AXPONA) they were amazing. It just depends. Have you ever setup a hotel room for audio? I have done a few of the AK Fests and I can tell you it is not easy. It is hard to setup and show in 2-3 days maximum. I think you are being harsh. Maybe audio shows aren't for you.
