Writing is on the wall
Giving up your dealer network and going to direct sales is a HUGE decision for the company. Dealers support brands that are profitable and that support their dealers with product availability, advertising, promotions, etc. Sales people support brands for those same reasons, plus they usually have personal favorites which they support enthusiastically. So, has PS Audio slipped up on its products or its dealer support? Whichever it is, this is probably the beginning of the end for PS Audio. If they couldn't support and promote their products well enough to sustain a reliable dealer network, then how likely are they to be able to successfully do it for direct/online sales? Give it a couple more years of declining sales .... and they'll be gone.PS Audio has announced they are going 100% direct sales. Dropping the entire dealer network. They will give full trade in value for trade-ins and a 30 day free return policy. They are coming out w/a new speaker line. Wonder how that will affect their sales.
