The only problem with that hypothesis is that other high end audio companies don't appear to be having problems. Maybe they are but it just hasn't shown yet? Martin Logan or others haven't lowered prices yet. I think that would be a sure sign of low demand?Well it sure looks to me as though we’ve seen the end of ARC at least as we’ve all known it. Right now at least in the States, the economy is not good and in the hi-fi market at least the level of what we see selling on Audiogon and US Audiomart specifically sales are very very slow. I’ve been re-cabling my system, and buying and trying to sell other fairly high quality cables on both sites (Nordost and Cardas) and had ZERO interest and only ridiculously low ball offers from one individual that I promptly ignore. I just bought a power cord on US Audiomart and I asked the seller if he had any other offers on the cable and he said only 1 low ball offer that he ignored and that cable was for sale there for 2 months. I firmly believe that this level of slow sales has also occurred in the high end new equipment as well, and that it has a lot to do with ARC’s predicament.
