Just in case Onkyo have any bots scouring the Internet, a couple of 818's for a competition would go down well Blum 3

Can you answer the question then Andrew, why have the competions dried up.

I think of late we have been adopting other strategies – with some degree of success – to drive traffic to the site.

So Gel, you're missing that frustrating feeling of not knowing the winners of the latest competition?

Or seeing the winning goodies on sale on eBay within hours of the announcement? Wink

I don't think we've actively dropped them as in 'there will never be a competition again'; it's rather that we just haven't run one for a while.

Were the winners of the Bristol show competition ever announced? I havent seen it mentioned on the WHF website or the Bristol Sound & Vision website / facebook page. Just curious!
