Why Marantz AV receivers never appear in What HiFi reviews?
Hello HiFi Enthusiastics,
Everytime I read my new edition of What HiFi magazine I feel some diappointment.
The magazine is supposed to be objective and non-biased, but how can anybody explain why in all AV receivers individual and group reviews, the magazine omits to review or even to mention the Marantz products.
When I decided to upgrade my AV receiver a couple of years ago, I had a look on what is available on the market and then I tried to see what the experts are saying about each products.
One of the products I short listed at the time was the Marantz SR6006.
I waited patiently (more than 6 months) the What HiFi review which never came.
I finally decided myself and bought the little beast.
My choice was done following several listening sessions. The choice was also based on specifications and quality/price performance.
I am happy. Yes, I am happy with my choice.
But, how frustrated I am to see that month after month, magazine after magazine, my Marantz receiver and its successors are still un-understandably omitted in the reviews.
Since then, I colcluded that What HiFi is biased toward some brands.
This should not be the case for one of the leaders in the HiFi press.If I am wrong, I would love to hear the reason behind pushing some brands, while others are completely dropped.
I would love also to hear the opinion of the readers.
