    Default AV 123 Closing

    This is on their website: (I hope this isn't already posted - didn't see it)

    Dear Friends:

    It is with profound sadness that we are announcing the closing of AV123/Perpetual Technologies effective today.

    We join in sending all of you our sincerest thanks and deepest appreciation for your support through these last 11+ years. Our history is rich with wonderful products and happy moments, all in the name of making great music affordable for all of you.

    Sadly, recent events have cast a very unfavorable light on AV123 and have effectively sealed our collective fate. We hope that over time, we will be able to offer more information.

    No amount of thanks on our part would ever be adequate enough in exchange for your past support.

    Shortly we hope to be able to offer you more information about how to obtain MFW15 amplifiers should you require one. Please stay tuned to this page for updates. We hope to have this in place within the next few weeks.

    In the meantime while we orderly wind down our business – allow us to once again thank you for your patronage and support through all of the times… both good and bad.

    Respectfully yours,

    The Team at AV123

    "Appreciation of audio is a completely subjective human experience. Measurements can provide a measure of insight, but are no substitute for human judgment. Why are we looking to reduce a subjective experience to objective criteria anyway? The subtleties of music and audio reproduction are for those who appreciate it. Differentiation by numbers is for those who do not".--Nelson Pass

    Behold the future of high end audio retail
    Well ok, they weren't high end, but I couldn't resist. :D

    i guess that is a personal opinion. i didn't think they were really high end, but after owning Rti and Lsi systems, and the Rocket series, I feel that av123 might have an upper hand.

    The perfect example of how to run a company into the ground and take all the buyers of the product with you. Good riddance....and they didn't sound that great anyways.

    I truly feel bad for all the people he suckered hard-earned $$ out of over the years, and those well-intentioned folks who continued to support him even as he was screwing them. What a shame. I guess my sub has little residual value now... Oh well, at least it still works! That's more than some can say.
