Do you by default always offer outdoor kitchen gear, outdoor furniture, and wrought iron gates at big discounts? When did we as a society decide that audio dealers shouldn't make much but most everything else is ok? Have you ever thought about how much demo equipment costs, or considered how much shipping is over the course of a year? Commercial space can be in the thousands per month, then you still gotta eat and pay the mortgage and still come up with $1,200 to $2,400 a month for stupid health insurance and haul speakers around with something other than a horse and buggy. It's crazy hard to make a good living doing this, literally the hardest thing I've ever done. I love it and it suits me but jeez, some people have no idea. I literally had to have two jobs for three years then work regular 17 hours a day for months just to break into it, and that's with having a cozy software engineer job as the main one. Did nobody notice all the audio shops that shut down after the internet took off and the recession hit? You literally have to be half crazy to try to get into the business of selling speakers nowadays, mainly because of this sentiment, it's a non-stop race to the bottom and we have to actively seek out brands and lines that are more protected to keep profits up in order to survive. Apparently that's a bad thing. SMH. 4 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
