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

No, it's what some think might happen if the magazine purchased review
samples. Again, this was discussed some time back on the Asylum. Did you
not read those earlier postings?

Look. Your suggestion is not new. It is something that we have thought about
for a long time. On balance, we feel that having review samples on loan is
the optimal strategy for a magazine that publishes reviews. We are not alone
in this belief - other than Consumer Reports, all other magazines do likewise.

And in any case, this is not relevant to the thread. As I pointed out earlier,
Denon didn't refuse to supply a review sample, which would require us
borrowing or purchasing a review sample, we didn't ask for a sample. As i
also pointed out to you, we _did_ review two other Denon 100th Anniversary
products, as well as a Denon receiver, so we haven't been ignoring the brand.
