I was really excited when head-fi tv first episode well over one year ago was released.
One of the very first video was about Practical devices amp which I have never heard of before that video. I ended up testing that amp because of that video and indeed it was a great little amp with excellent feature.
I was super excited about where the channel was going to head towards but currently the videos are not quiet what I hoped for. Lets focus more on the products than the people who run it. Lets focus on the smaller guys who with little more audience have great potential to make a great product. More product critics, more product feedbacks, more community awareness on what product they want, what products are hot and why?
audionewbi, thanks sincerely for the constructive feedback.
Regarding the smaller guys: I think they get plenty of light shone on them at Head-Fi (as do the bigger guys). Companies big and small serve this market, and so both should be discussed. If you look at the Gift Guide (currently updated twice yearly), there are many products by small companies covered. And as a business owner, I don't see profit motivation as inherently bad--every company making things (and/or providing services) here needs to profit to continue doing so.
Regarding episodes interviewing industry folks: We'll get back to more gear-specific episodes soon. Right now, though, we have a lot of interview footage from past shows, and we need to put this material out there before it becomes outdated. We may include more gear-specific episodes in between a couple of those.
Again, audionewbi, thank you for the feedback.
