Out of date

Hi

Is there an age for reviews after which they get removed. I’ve just been looking at the best buys and lots of the reviews date back to 2015. Surely these are no longer of use.  Also the selection filters aren’t that helpful.

cheers.

Many decent products are

Many decent products are still on the market after 5 or 6 years unchanged.  E.g. The KEF LS50.    Some cartridges are decades old, yet still current. E.g. The Goldring 100x series.  

I'd actually prefer archived tests to be kept!  Other magazines make results available for twenty years or more, and as mentioned above, this is handy if buying used. 

Michell Tecnodec/Rega/Grado record player, Marantz SA14s1 SE SACD player, Primare I32 amplifier, Hitachi FT-5500 mark I and II tuners, Nakamichi ZX-7 cassette, SBTouch streamer, Chromecast audio, ATC SCM40 spkrs.

... keep them. What's wrong with a bit of 'history' ?
