I won't be surprised if many of the speakers that sell through traditional dealers primarily take this attitude. They feel they have little to gain and much risk in reviews. And many of them do not know us and won't bother to take the time to read what we have been doing.So the only speaker of the 6 I voted for is nixed cause they are scared their product won't stack up to the competition! Ugh!!!! Im beginning to question my choices in audio!!?? hopefully my next highest pick, I think is the golden ear tritons, pan out. Hopefully sandy steps up to the plate.
than thisI called Ascend on Monday evening and was advised that I would need to email Dave, which I did, at 6:09 PM on 1/6/13. As of right now I have NOT heard from him, so I assume he is probably not interested or realizes he can't make the deadline. It looks like we will have to pickup the next two highest voted speaker models, as it is not looking good for B&W or Ascend.
I did hear back from KEF and it looks like they will be participating... although it is not 100% confirmed yet, it sounded like they were very receptive.
I have not heard from Focal, but I did talk with Sandy's wife (Golden Ear) and he is at CES, but I think if he has speakers available he will participate. I have talked with him in the past and he seemed to be receptive to reviews. I have reached out to Tannoy and Polk and am pending response from them.
and your response is this?Well I for one will be dissappointed if the Ascends can't make it. It is some consolation that they will be offered a second chance...I hope the are at least willing to participate.
So, I'm a bit confused because you said in the above quote "that you heard from him but he is not interested...I know Dave is kind of slow to answer his email but he usually does....I also know they're extremely busy with the new Sierra 2 & just trying to catch up on back orders. I would give them another day or two in hopes hope he'd get back to you...if not, the show must go on!I am disappointed that I can't even get a response from them. :huh:
For the record, this is not my quote. I never said "he is not interested". What I stated (after the appropriate "NOT" was edited in to the statement, was:So, I'm a bit confused because you said in the above quote "that you heard from him but he is not interested...
