Did anyone watch these videos posted of violins by modern makers from about 2 months ago?

http://www.violinist.com/blog/laurie/20174/21113/

I found the videos interesting overall. Out of respect for makers that may or may not be on this forum, I'm not going to name names. My main take-away from the videos was that only a handful of the violins stood out above the rest for me. I found that odd for some reason. Maybe the recordings weren't that great or my ears aren't working right.......obviously, live in person would be better than a video anytime!

Also, I found it interesting how often Mr. Chalifour made comments about the backs of the violins. The more I do this, the more I found out how important visuals are for some players. He definitely had a workout testing these instruments for 2 hours!

Anyone else watch these videos? Any thoughts if you did watch?
