    HiFi Choice will need to incorporate a lot more swearing on the front cover if it's to stem its dwindling market share.

    Why? No-one takes Wigwam reviews seriously, do they?

    It would be wonderful to have reviews based on the 'Which' model, perhaps one day a real rain will come and wash away....
    Sorry slipped back into the early 80's all this talk of the wicked old cow ( dead wicked old cow).

    Keith.

    Up to a point perhaps - wonderful if all you want to know about is things like how kit measures or how long it will last, the problem is that most of us listen with ears not meters, so the subjective side has its place too IMHO. Give it time, it's a new venture.



    As for the rest, since when has advertising been "shilling"? I'm genuinely puzzled because most of the trade on here are just trying to make a living, from, you know, working, and selling stuff and such. We help support the 'Wam with subs, advertising revenue and kit to fill the review section with - it provides a marketplace and review site. If reviewers like kit, that's great, if they don't, they send it back and tell us to buck our ideas up!

    Advertising has never been shilling so I am rather puzzled that you are puzzled!

    What a puzzling thread.

    Anyway, if it only costs a shilling to have a piece reviewed, I'm not surprised the dealers take advantage of it.

    Is advertising a shilling too. Very good value. I'm puzzled that more dealers do not do it.

    How puzzling that memories seem so short, and some of the wam's most outspoken members seem so shy of expressing their concerns directly.

    I'll put it down to old age and decrepitude

    Wow, so writing reviews is shilling now is it?

    All manufacturers and dealers are welcome to submit kit for review. It's hardly surprising that long time friends of the wam were first to take up the offer.

    As for taking us seriously, well the industry is. Watch this space.
