Hi

Is there an age for reviews after which they get removed. I’ve just been looking at the best buys and lots of the reviews date back to 2015. Surely these are no longer of use. Also the selection filters aren’t that helpful.

cheers.

Many decent products are still on the market after 5 or 6 years unchanged. E.g. The KEF LS50. Some cartridges are decades old, yet still current. E.g. The Goldring 100x series.

I'd actually prefer archived tests to be kept! Other magazines make results available for twenty years or more, and as mentioned above, this is handy if buying used.

I trump your 2015 with a 2008 ...

... keep them. What's wrong with a bit of 'history' ?
