Jeez I used to actually believe Breuninger's reviews were unbiased and honest, and took his recommendations on face value. I can't believe how gullible I was! It's like those syndicated US tv shows you believe are real...until you later find out they have 'pre-arranged outcomes' (read: BS). This has completely changed my view of AV Showrooms. I mean you can't believe a word which comes out of those reviewers mouths when they're being paid to give a favorable review. Dito for Stereophile and The Absolute Sound (and probably most other audio rags). All I know is, If I ever run an audio website, my reviews will not be 'pay to play' & will be the antithesis of AV Showrooms.
