WHF European mag versions
Hello, I would like to make some comments regarding the spanish version of the magazine. I have to say that there are 3 things that I usually find in the magazine and which are not really aligned with the country where you are selling the magazine. I believe that in order for a magazine to be relly profesional and internationaly it requires at least a minimum level of adaptation to the country where it aims. Hope you will take the following criticisms as a gift:
1) We do not use Sky - We do not have Sky, or Fresat or any of the UK tv options that you have there. There are too many comments and references in every issue of the magazine regarding these options.
2) Power-hub and other accessories - We do not have the possibility to use some of the products that you review in the Spanish magazine. In some cases they do not even distribute those products in Spain. Ex. Taccima power-hubs. Most of these are customized for UK plugs only and they are not distributed to hi-fi shops in Spain.
3) Budget concept - The budget/high-end concept is very different here. A speaker of 600 Eur is considered already high-end and it is out of reach for most medium economy families. None of my friends or office collegues have any system for hi-fi or home cinema which cost in total more than 600 Eur (I repeat - IN TOTAL). It sounds very strange (even a bit offensive) to read in the magazine that a pair of speakers of 1000 Eur are considered budget or "a steal", "a gift", etc.... 600 Eur here is a LOT of money already for a speaker. People will actually look at you weird if you tell them that you have spent 600 Eur in a pair of speakers.
Again, I only hope to contribute to the contineous improvement of the mag and that this is taken only as opportunities for improvement. Best regards, Pablo.
