That is I always was interested - why we never hear about Audio from the richest Arab countries? I was looking recently at the log of my site and saw a number of recent visitors from there. It would be interesting to hear about audio environment in there.
Japanese records collectors known to come to US and sweep the record stores. I spoke with a guy I know who sells record for living and he said the he has a few very steady and highly discriminating customers from Arabian Peninsula. Also, someone told me that when David Wilson started in begin of 80s production of his expensive Grand Slamms then 80% of his shipment were to Mid East customer.
Well we have no doubts that there are a lot of people in there who have a lot of money. My question is: does is lead to any interesting and objectionable audio solutions? I never heard audio manufactured in the Arabs counters and I did not see presence of any audio public from that part of world. I am sure they are there….
I wonder what those guys are listening if they such a great consumers of Western audio products? Rgs, The Cat
