I've been blown away and humbled by the response to my thread based on my review
of the HRT microStreamer - named after the review: HRT Levels the Field with the microStreamer
Since posting and engaging in that thread, many of you have PM'd me about reviewing the Music Streamer HD,
as well as posting about that in the microStreamer thread.
I thought I was going to get one, but my editor was recently told that their US distributor, Elite A/V Distribution,
they will not send one to me.
This took me by complete surprise! Especially considering my microStreamer review (I scooped
that story, and reported on it during CES last year) and the reviews I've written in the past!
They stated they thought it would be a "conflict of interest", considering my history with
the company! But meanwhile my microStreamer review is posted on the HRT website, and
they even used a quote from my review!
Isn't this strange?
I would love to review the Music Streamer HD. I know HRT products well, as I was a fan of Kevin
Halverson before I worked for him!! I loved Muse Electronics (his former line)!! I wish to continue to support
Kevin and his efforts today - but the distributor has now formed a wedge there.
I consulted with a fellow Head-fier about this issue.
If you would like me to review the HRT Music Streamer HD, please take a minute and send an email to the
US distributor requesting a review from me.
HERE IS THE EMAIL:
I already have multiple places where the review is wanted.
If you guys send him an email requesting that I review the product
- I will BUY ONE TO REVIEW IT FOR YOU.
I don't want to let anybody down, and to be brutally honest, I was really hurt when they tried to shut
me out. I'm just trying to keep doing what I'm doing! I've never shied away from saying in public that
I worked for HRT and CEntrance! I'm proud of the work I did with both teams!!
Thoughts on this idea??
