I wish all manufacturers would get involved on the street level with their products. It seems like the lack of involvement can be somewhat directly traced to products sucking out. I think you've got products in two categories, stuff that companies are going to market the hell out of, and this would include mostly crappy sounding items with a ton of bells and whistles and high "ooooh" factor to look good in a full page advertisement, and then the other category, stuff that actually sounds good and has features that people actually use and need to solve problems. I think the only way to progress in the later is to get involved with the end user.

there is a HUGE difference between a designer/manufacturer getting involved in a discussion, even if it is to slighlty self promote, compared to a vintage gear dealer or some other such nonsense doing the same thing.
