I have been trying to compare reviews on various pre/pros. Most magazines always come down on the plus side...otherwise, there goes the free equipment and ads, huh?
So, I go to a site like audioreview.com and see what mostly real people say.
No matter the product, there are always some honest sounding low raters on otherwise highly rated products. Is this just a function of quality control...so many bad apples do leave the factory? Sometimes, I am sure it is a user issue.
Is there any place that shows reliability/frequency of repair stats for audio equip the way that consumer reports does for various goods?
