...such that you couldn't walk into a dealer and purchase whatever it is you wanted OR is it that they wouldn't provide you with factory direct, industry accommodation pricing? Can't see how a dealer could refuse to sell you something unless you really pissed them off in some manner. Not clear from what you wrote.
She wrote: "I wanted to buy a turntable not get one free."

...was the two companies refused to sell equipment to her at industry accommodation pricing.
"Audio Research refused to sell me a preamp I was interned in buying. They didn't really have a reason. I have never reviewed or owned any ARC products. Maybe because I was writing for TAS at the time and there was some kind of issue with them that I was unaware of?
And VPI said no because they said they couldn't afford to give away any more free turntables to reviewers. I wanted to buy a turntable not get one free. But I'd love to know who did get all the free VPI turntables. Stand up and be counted."
In neither paragraph did she state that she was seeking accommodation pricing. Accommodation pricing might have been implied but not clearly...to me at least.
I mention accommodation pricing in both.
Have a great day1
...had you stated instead:
"Audio Research refused to sell me at at accomodation pricing a preamp I was interned in buying. They didn't really have a reason. I have never reviewed or owned any ARC products. Maybe because I was writing for TAS at the time and there was some kind of issue with them that I was unaware of?" etc.
there would be no doubt what was going on.
I guess I'm grammar and style dense.
Who pissed in your Wheaties this morning? lol
I'd love to stay and chat but I'm having a rummage sale in the rain today and need to bring all my old gear back inside.
Have a nice day.
