I was in my local Bang and Olufsen shop recently and I got into a bit of a "discussion" with the assistant about whether B&O were perhaps more of a style thing than out and out high quality. (nothing to contentious there I didn't think) He got all on his high horse and told me that B&O had been the winners for the last 20 years or so of a European trial where all of the top TV manufacturers show their TVs to a panel of the general public with the TVs masked so that only the screen is visible. (so that their judgements are not biased by their expectations) I haven't seen anything about this before and wonder if he was just spinning me a line. If not, I'd be quite interested in seeing the results of these trials. Anyone know anything about them?
