    B & K Dead!
    It's sad to say but another audio company bites the dust. B & K is shutting down. Rumor is that ATI may pick up the pieces.

    Just a side note. I guess there was ad blood between B & K and Frank Van Alstine. Years ago B & K copied one of Franks Mosfet designs and marketed it as their own.

    Well this sucks. A good friend runs a B&W HT system driven by all B&K amplification, in addition to their processor. I always liked their equipment. They have great build quality, if I found it a tad dark sonically.
