Cannot know who is responsible but someone dropped the ball.
Like the old saying goes "there's no such thing as bad publicity".
The ad pic I took was from a mainstream audio magazine dated July/August 2015.
Like most, it's a dealer ad featuring a line it carries. I know sometimes the manufacturer will contribute to the cost of the ad, but they don't usually get involved in sign off. Unless of course this was an attention grabber.
Either way, I don't know if anyone ever noticed it before now. I only treat myself to buying magazines in the summer months so not sure if it ever ran again.
Some interesting posts on this topic. I'm still trying to find the Counterpoint ad with the pretty girl and wine glass on the tube component. I just saw it a few months ago online in an interview with Michael Elliot but no luck.
Funny how misrepresentation can backfire when enhancement is the objective.
