    Recently some prominent dealers for Borresen/Aavik and Ansuz brands are dumping all of their inventory on Audiogon.
    Anyone have any insight?

    I am an Ansuz/Aavik dealer. The particular instance that you are referring to is one FORMER dealer who is dumping their inventory. Note that purchases made from him are not from an authorized dealer and there are risks. I can assure you that things have never been better with Ansuz/Aavik/Borresen; it's my honor to be associated with them.

    you can hardly blame ex dealers dumping their stock. do they bring the 20% used value like their old Raidho speakers?

    I have no idea who you are but you seem to know a lot about me!.. If you want to know what happened, and why it happened you can always call me.. and by the way, I was a dealer of Aavik Ansuz Borresen before you were even able to pronounce the names!.. and you are half right, i was never officially the distributor but there is the other half that you have no idea about.. about your baseless claims regarding purchases made from me are carrying a risk... the products are under FACTORY warranty.. i never give my personal warranty on anything... you should know that as an audio dealer..
