    Has anyone out at CES been by the B&K booth yet? I'm wondering if they have any answers about the update for the ref 30 or the oft-rumored ref 40. Lord knows you can't get information by e-mailing, calling, or writing them.

    Thanks, Brian

    Yeah, that'll be introduced at the same time they announce the ref 60 and update their website too, eh? [​IMG]

    Guess I'll just bump this one up for the last time. Anyone at CES stop by the B&K booth?

    Thanks, Brian

    Brian,

    B&K doesn't have a booth at CES, they have a private suite at Caesar's Palace each year.

    This is a mistake on their part, as most journalists don't have the time to make it to their suite.

    I'll call their PR agency on Monday and see what I missed out on.

    Regards,

    I did not see B&K at CES in Indy either. Thanks John, now i know why.

    I don't understand, they have excellent products but fail to be present at these important HI-FI events.

    And as of this moment, they have zero dealers in Canada. I called and asked about that, was told they can barely keep up with the orders now (was the Ref 30) but have some things in the works to re-establish a Canadian distributor.

    Thank you very much John. I hope that you hear some good news about an upgrade for the ref 30 or perhaps a a whole new ref 40.

    By the way, belated thanks for your review of the ref 30 from December 2000. I must have read that article at least 15 times! It is by far the most in depth review I've ever seen of the ref 30.

    Thanks, Brian

    Serge,

    B&K has a booth every year at CEDIA, and in 2002 they displayed their multizone receiver.

    Brian,

    Thanks, it's nice to know our work is read, seriously.

    Regards,

    They are pushing their new Zone receivers for whole house audio/video which are very impressive once they got into the software that set them up and showed what they could do.

    On the pre/pro front I was told to be safe they are saying summer for a new receiver/ pre-pro and upgrade. Also they are working on a ultra high end balanced series for their products and a top of the line Digital amplifier these wil be much more than traditional B&K stuff has been though.
