The Lab was created for the topic mentioned above originally, although I feel its progressed into playing an important role of central station for many of the newer reviewers these days, a location they discuss upcoming reviews, products and generally stimulates content on the site (not particularly myself though). I drop in there and sway them off-topic sometimes (which I shouldn't do) though that's the general way I view their thread. The discovery thread still has a purpose though the Chinese IEM thread is very popular full-time these days.
I think its a good thing as well all the Chinese budget IEMs are pushed into one thread, if they all had their own they'd probably require their entirely own subforum.
