Home Theater Shack and GIK Acoustics are excited to announce yet another incredible Giveaway Contest. This one is like nothing we've ever run before and TWO winners will be chosen! Entry involves filling out a brief Reader Survey and nothing else...both HTS members and non-members are free to enter. Entrants will be eligible to win one (1) box of four (4) GIK Acoustics 4A Alpha Panels in standard fabric (value of $380).

GIK Acoustics' products are beyond simple do-it-yourself panels that are found on the market today. They use high-quality materials that will not sag or leak over time, and they build every panel by employing a unique two-frame system. GIK's team of professional builders handcraft each acoustic panel, bass trap, and diffusor to exacting standards, creating attractive and effective products. Dollar for dollar, GIK proudly claims that its products absorb more sabins (sound) than any other traps on the market. The company's new Alpha Wood Series is a line of acoustic panels and bass traps with a wood frame and face (23.75" x 23.75" x 4") that beautifully combines absorption with diffusion. The panels feature rigid fiberglass material made from 100-percent recycled materials free from formaldehyde or urea formaldehyde, fabric wrap, and a blonde veneer wood face finish. The wood face is designed for one-dimensional scattering, while allowing for low frequency waves to pass through to the fiberglass panel for low end absorption.

Wow, this is a new twist! I like it! Took the survey, even did another one...so does this automatically know we took the survey & enter us in the contest, or do we enter somewhere? Sorry it the post said this somewhere.

I'm a big fan of GIK, but am always cautious about volunteering personal information online....

What is being done with the survey information and how do you protect personally identifiable information?

Thank you!

Hi Talesin,

I've had an extended conversation with our parent company about this, and they've assured me that the information being collected is only being used as part of an aggregate data collection; a snap shot of Home Theater Shack users. The only eyes seeing individual information boils down to about two people...and they're not concerned with individual responses. The only case where individual information is important, comes down to the newsletter.

So, if you're concerned that information is being sold to another entity, I'm told that it won't be...

Hope you're interested in taking part!

Todd

Just piggy-backing off of the previous post...if you haven't entered this contest: Do it!

Room treatments have a profound impact on sound and GIK Acoustic's treatments are second to none. I know that a survey based Giveaway is something new for HTS, but give it a try! Don't shy away because it's different. :T
