Audio Advisor go "poof"??

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I just read on usenet (rec.audio.opinion -- a nasty, nasty newsgroup, by the way) that Audio Advisor just went out of business. Anyone hear anything about this? I just tried the website, and nothing came up.

It's not coming up for me either.

I would be very surprised if this is true, but, then again, I know nothing about how bad or good they were doing business-wise.

Shame if it's true -- fellow Michiganders they were.

No workie for me....

There is a good chance though that this has to do with the fiber optic cable cut from the derailment of a freight train...

Or maybe not... I dunno, but I would be surprised if they went out of business, they just seem to be too attractive to buy from.

Odd, it works perfect for me. As a matter of fact as a test, here are some pics from the front page :

NOPE, does not work for me as well. ( I also made 8 friends try it and ALL says no go)

KR.. I think your browser is running off the cache pages. Have you visit AA recently ? if so, then the pages are cached.

The 2 pics u post does not work as well. ( but works for you because the 2 pics are cached on your hd)


If this is indeed true, this will be a GREAT LOSS to all the audiophiles and new comers..AA's 30 days policy is great.. I am hoping it is just a server problem which cause this *rumor*

I think I just saw a grin on Tyll's face...

Like I said, I hope its some server problem with AA. I really dont think they will shut down just like that. At least put all the new items on clearance with 50% off .. so I can buy some stuff

I wouldn't worry about it -- there was some big Internet problem yesterday (a major network line is down or something). Once that's back, I'm sure AA will be available for everyone again.

As I mentioned before (and I was serious), there was a freight train that was derailed and sent some fiber cables to hell...

I'll probably hate myself for asking, but:

What's a MOTH post...?

Sounds like an upright stick smeared with insect attractant...
post #15 of 22
Hmmm, I wonder if the MOTH posts is about the rare Moth Sa23 3Watt Integrated Amp that has a headphone jack. It was reviewed by Dan Swartz on TAS. Anyhow, I don't think I have heard any reviews of Moth by any headwizers yet.
