I have been wondering if we have been paying way to high margins on audio products. I understand it is gross margins, but when they range from 40% upward it seems a bit ridiculous. Distributors are not keeping stock for demos nor are dealers doing the same. What are we paying such high margins for? All the guy does is place an order and deliver it to you, usually after an advance payment has been taken from the client and for this he charges a fat markup? I feel the audio community should come together and address this issue if possible. Curious what others feel or their take? Maybe my calculations are wrong.
