    Okay as Strokes of Genius is my baby so to speak....imho it should be the place where you put reviews on any audio item, some of which should/could go into other rooms (normally) but rather than a few lines (which might be fine for other rooms) a SOG item/review (I hope) will have more depth to it and length.

    Does that help ?

    Yeah, S.O.G is more for in-depth reviews of equipment and/or describing the effects of (usually non-cable related) tweaks which have transformed your system, such as for example, filters, demagnetisers, oak cones, and the like, or perhaps just some adjustment you've made to your system, which has proved revelatory, that hasn't involved the addition of anything new at all!
