Hmmm....A Honda CBR 250/300R bike that retails for 4,500 GBP in UK, retails in India for Less than 2 Lacs...
The equation seems to be completely blown
Anyways no comments on pricing... Juz quoting the above reference as example...
There are many products which are more affordable but which need a review as well.
I agree, however can you provide names of any of the dealers/distributors of these products who has a demo model that they can provide for a review. In my experience there are very few D&D's in India who can provide any equipment let alone affordable ones for reviews/demos. They just don't simply stock them.
It was our goal when we started Hifitoday.com, to try and review equipment at the 2 lac and below level, but it has been very difficult to get equipment limited to this level. I have been in touch with over 20 D&D's but have not been very successful. Anyways we will strive to get more affordable equipment, but we will also, on ocassion, review the higher priced products as well. Regarding the pricing of products relative to market of origin or US etc., I will not debate, ultimately it is the prerogative of the D&D and the buyer who will decide if it is for him or not.
I know you people have been doing a great job in taking the efforts to source material for review :thumbsup:
Anything more than 50K is juz out of reach for many budding enthusiast..
But hifimart.com... Bunch of affordable products available which the most majority of the crowd can afford... (Taga Harmony, Wharfedale, Sonodyne to name a few)
Plz review one such affordable product at least a month with common equipment that FM's use....
