AVforum is interesting. I think I know which side of the fence I now sit but those interested in a new sub will need to investigate further and make up their own minds This forum has exposed 'fakes' before and it has also helped to promote innovative products. Time will tell. Cheers

Well the AVForums part is a bit of a scam is what I meant, as they seem to have a lot of the people in there pocket to hype the products up and therefore make it seem impressive, and therefore people are getting dragged into a product that they really do not know too muchg about!

OK guys I have warned you but let me digress as I do not want to upset too many people, I am just telling you as it is...trust me
I'm gob smacked at the allegations made on here. I have dealt with Gecko for 17 years now.
I have had many high end systems from them and OTHER retailers,in particular the HCC.
How is this a scam? I have seen, heard and played with the USC subs for many many hours.
Recruit you have a personal issue with Rob and Gecko so I would suggest you keep those feelings to yourself. No offence meant BTW.
I have also dealt with and spoken with David at Frank Harvey. We have our different opinions on equipment but he is a top guy with great products.
Gecko have designed the MK Sound website as they are the sole importer of MK Sound just as they were with the old M&K Sound products.
I wouldn't normally get on my soap box but misinformation due to personal feelings is wrong!
I will sing Gecko's praises and defend them as I have had dealings with them and Rob for 17 years. What they are now doing with subs is a fantastic idea. I would also praise Nick and Dan at the Home Cinema Centre. Wonderful company.
So maybe I should not have purchased my MK S150MKII's from Gecko then? Damn fine speakers that will outperform most out there. OMG they are not KK's sacrilege,what I have I done?Rob has brainwashed me again. I must stop spending my hard earnt money with him.

Rich - I dont have any personal issues with Rob or Gecko, I just don't like to see the sort of rubbish that has been going on at AVForums lately and then you try and bring over onto other forums, seriously mate I have bought stuff many years ago from Gecko through other retailers seeing as Gecko is a distributor, but after the recent goings on I think its better people have other opinions dont you !?!
Can we all be careful about making seemingly unsubstantiated and potentially defamatory allegations, and please let's not bring argument from other forums here. Thanks.

The word "scam" is quite liablous and probably not correct in this context. If they were taking your money and not delviering a product then it would be a "scam".
Maybe it's better to say that you don't have any confidence in the references.

HERE I COME TO SAVE THE DAY!!!!
No, you aren't, you're telling it as you THINK it is, there's a difference. If you have credible evidence that the people involved with USC are perpetrating a fraud or even just not providing very good customer service, then let's hear it. If it's simply because you don't like the way people are hyping them up on another forum then that's an entirely different kettle of fish and your comments are potentially libellous, so I'd be very careful about what you're saying.
Note: I have no connection with anyone mentioned in this thread or read any of the comments on AVForums. I haven't even visited AVForums in about three years...
No signature worth mentioning...
Yes, let's keep the language under control here and calm things down please.

Have a read at the official m&k thread on the us avs forums to see what Ken Kriesel thinks of Gecko! I just read an interesting email from Ken on page 97.
These usc subs will be very good subs and will be more than competative with subs 2x the price,
Its still early days as far as all the final designs go but custom subs can be made and these sub cabinets are made to the highest quality, people moan there is no options in the uk and the only way to get something decent is spend shed loads money or get an inport again costing shed loads of money, there is now an option and gecko have done some demo days which have gone very well and people are seeing just how good these things are.
How do you know?
I think there's something wrong with your M key...
How do i know, because I know what drivers what size cabs and what amps there using.
And i have heard subs that cost alot more than my diy subs and they certainly aint no better just cost 2/3x the price,
So I know these subs will perofrm very very well and with subs worth 2/3 times as much.
and as for my keyboard
Well that's that then
