I think the tour is good but hopefully no strings are attached to what people can or can't say. What you don't want to hear is hype or dishonest opinions. I have written off reviews from a few head-fi'ers, entirely. I still read only for entertainment.
Honestly it's hard for me to give up my rockboxed 256GB CF DMod with the sound I have no complaint about. I understand I may not have the best sound, but life is about balance and you probably can't have everything.
No strings attached. You'd think that given the sheer number of participants (I've lost count but there can't be much fewer than 40 previewers!), if we started dictating some funny terms someone should have backed out by now with a public statement on our dirty deeds
