Because of an almost complete lack of interest by those into home audio and AV products in pro audio and AV products, and vice-versa, and due to a tendency by some people to actually read the Hi-Fi & AV Manufacturers pages as documents rather than to use them as endpoints as they were originally intended to be, it was decided to split the link pages up into 2 sections, one for personal and home product manufacturers and another for professional and semi-pro products
Note that it will take some time to finalise this and that some manufacturers like Weiss Engineering are active in both fields, but in those cases we will provide links rather than duplicates, but as this is primarily a home audio site a manufacture active in more than one field will by default land in the home audio links page. Note that at some point in time we will have to do the same with the Defunct Audio Companies pages.
