An article at ERT here reports the news that Grundig have decided to withdraw fomr most of their consumer segments in the UK. All service and warranty commitments will continue to be met through GTS, run by ex Grundig staff. The STB division has of course already been sold to Thomson, who will continue to develop software updates for existing DTT boxes. Looks like DSG will still use the Grundig brand as "one up from Matsui" and badge internationally-sourced cheap Av kit. But it's goodbye to the diminishing presence of their high-end Loewe-esque TVs, B&O style hifis, and a long history of SW Radios, Reel to Reel (where they became known generically as Grundigs a la Hoover), the first 100Hz TV, a full range of DTT upgradeable TVs etc etc. I personally think their marketing dept gave up on the UK 10 years ago, and while most small towns had their own Grundig dealer in the past, they've become increasingly hard to find outside the badged Littlewoods and DSG offerings.
