Interesting note about General Music from here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wik=
i/Generalmusic
"In February 2009 Generalmusic dismissed all employees and immediately file=
d for bankrupcy=2C which was declared in 2011.
In December 2014 the Finnish group Soundion Oy Ltd (new owner of GEM=2C LEM=
 and Elka) announced that=2C in 2015=2C Generalmusic will bring to market a=
 product lineup composed of re-issued as well as brand new technology model=
s. The new production is planned to be set up in Finland."
And Soundion=2C from what I can tell=2C has thus far been a consumer electr=
onics company with sales in Europe only. I'm betting they won't appear to N=
AMM=2C but maybe Musikmesse. Hopefully they secure a distributor for outsid=
e of Europe either way.
Cheers=2C
