    magazines - especially 'whats hifi? sound and vision' only review their faves...you'll notice that the same crop of stuff gets reviewed every other month...the article just has a different title thats all...

    BK probably haven't got the time or inclination to generate that much publicity - courting magazines for coverage isn't a cheap exercise, unfortunately. The fact that they don't have a dealer network and deal direct points to where they are concentrating their efforts. REL and others probably wouldn't be too impressed if What Hifi recommended something that was too cheap - see how MJ Acoustics have affected their entry level market share

    I suppose they think "Why do we need magazine reviews when we've got the AVForums Subwoofer forum?" :)

    Well, with 100,000 unique users passing through according to the last newsletter, who needs AV magazines?!? :)

    I bought my xls200 based on advice and opinions from several different people on this forum. Far more useful than any magazine as they tend to provide a very single sided argument.

    The AV Forum is a great place. Real advice is given here, not the fanciful opinions of those with hidden agendas (imho).

    What is great about this forum is that it is more like a mini town, filled with nice people :D and the atmosphere here is one of helpfulness and gratitude. I think the moderators deserve a huge pat on the back for keeping things on track and helping to make this site what it is today.

    Also a big hand to my fellow posters who are always willing to help those who need it. Awww, we are all lovely jubblys :) Sorry, it's Friday, so I'm allowed to be a bit Soppy :p

    Well said!!! I agree totally. This forum, and all associated with it, help towards providing a highly resourceful reference library from which we all benefit.

    Thanks to everyone involved.
