Discuss a review. Provide constructive feedback. Talk to the industry.

RE: And once again...

...If a reviewer raves over a $10K list something-or-other so much that he "purchased the review sample" (for $6K) was the rave over a $10K something or a $5-6K something? Would the review have been so ravey if the reviewer would have to pay the higher list or "street" price? Are reviewers above all this? Or should review consumers account for industry accommodation pricing and adjust value expectations accordingly?

Just an opinion but I believe the high performance audio review industry has lost a lot of credibility in recent years due in part to loss of transparent price vs performance evaluations. Reminds me of the US health care biz...so maybe it's endemic in the current culture and we just accept it.
