Well, their site has been down for several days, and there have been sales on their products all over the place, so it seems like a possibility.

Have they joined Genesis and Arnie somewhere on a long vacation? Probably all playing great music through huge, fantastic speakers. I'd love to be on that desert island. I have really been sad to hear about Genesis, one of my favorite companies. And now Dunlavy too. I s'pose Bose is still steaming along.
if dunlavy "sold" his company to someone else in colorado springs, i'd be willing to bet the farm it's his largest secured creditor. if you think that bodes well, then you likely also believe that mr. dunlavy escaped australia whilst it was still a british penal colony. i'll check my local sources tomorrow and post any updates that seem worthwhile. -cfb
As an aside, did anyone really like his speakers? I auditioned the SC-IV and SC-V and I could not believe the
box colorations - sticking my ear to the sides, I could hear
the bass and primarily the mid drivers "leak" sound out.
As if the speaker was hollow inside (which is probably
not true); they certainly did not pass the knuckle test
Anybody (other than rcprince) consider the fact that JD is probably in his late 70s or even early 80s and might want to slow down a bit? Running a company is a lot of work.
Ack - gee, did anyone really like his speakers??? Read the press reviews, read the positive comments on this site and others. Not everyone has the same preferences as do you. I, for one, don't listen to my speakers by sticking my ears to the side but, hey - go for it!
A division of Wybron?
I just took a look at Dunlavy's entry on the CES website, which shows "Rand D Clark" as CEO of Dunlavy. A little further research shows this same Rand Clark is also the CEO of a company named Wybron, a manufacturer of entertainment lighting systems also located in Colorado Springs. Sounds like they're the new owners of Dunlavy. The current line of DAL products is truly state-of-the-art, and I can only hope that the new owners maintain the same focus and committment that Dunlavy Audio had under John D.
