Thanks to everyone who has responded thus far. Any ideas on how I can get a hold of Sony's report? That sounds like the most comprehensive market research out there. Also, I did a similar type of analysis that 6bq5 did. Although, it was mostly a guess. I did it based on touring factories, seeing the number of employees and square footage and knowing what kind of sales volume it would take to support that. However, there were many companies that I have not ever visited and just guessed based on their apparent presence in the market. The ones I had a good idea of were:
Krell, Madrigal, McIntosh, and Wilson
The ones I guessed at and perhaps people here on Audiogon have toured their facilities or have information about # employees, square footage, or rough estimate as to total volume in sales--even the ones above people may have better information than I do. This list would be:
ARC, Martin Logan, Classe, Bryston, Cary, Dunlavy, Wilson, Theil, Revel, Meridian, Dynaudio, CAT, BAT, Sonic Frontiers, VTL, JM Lab, Accuphase, Linn. There are probably others--so any information that other A-goners have would be appreciated.
