    Default Goodbye and thanks to BD audio

    Some of you may have heard Jack has ceased trading

    this is from the website

    With deep regret we have now closed our doors and are no longer trading.

    I would like to thank all my customers and suppliers and with regards to any future warranty issues ask that you contact the manufacturers directly until they find future representation.

    Any queries I will still monitor the contact info@bd-audio.co.uk



    Best regards,

    Jack.

    its been great to have some lovely modwright and grandinote gear from jack and i am sure you will join with me in wishing him all the best in the future

    Was chatting with him recently at Munich. He didn't give any clues this was happening...

    He is a character. He will succeed.

    The hifi game is really tough and the Chinese stuff makes traditional brands look hyper expensive.

    Best wishes Jack

    This is sad news
    I purchased a Modwright KWI200 from Jack.
    And found him a very pleasant guy to deal with.
    All the best for the future Jack.
    Regards

    Tried to buy from him once, emailed a number of times and rang (left message) I was ignored. I wonder how many others he also ignored.

    Sorry to see any business go down, but I have to wonder based on my experience how many others he ignored or gave poor customer care to.
    Regards Neil

    Perhaps that's why so many dealers are "struggling" because they have forgotten what communication is. In the past 4 months I have emailed 6 different dealers and didn't get a reply from a single one of them.

    I am sorry to hear that, that is very poor indeed. Businesses like that, audio or not, don't deserve to survive in my view.

    I had the money for what I wanted to buy from BD Audio, but no reply to emails or phone call suggests he didn't want or need my money. It was an nice easy sale, no selling required, just taking my money.
    Regards Neil
