Happy holidays – and thank you!

It’s been a whirlwind year, with Audio Video SA making the transition from printed magazine to on-line portal after decades of traditional publishing.

Since March this year, we’ve been posting a weekly array of news and reviews, while also offering an archive of previously published reviews and features in PDF format. The reaction has been phenomenal: our audience continues to grow, with November attracting 105 000 page views – our best ever.

Going on-line has opened the doors to a much larger audience, spread across the globe. But while AVSA now has readers in countries as far-flung as Peru, Mexico, Iceland, Iran, Ukraine, Sri Lanka and Burkina Faso, more than 95 percent of our visitors still hail from South Africa.

Also contributing to our ongoing growth is the fact that our on-line edition is completely free of charge. With no paper magazine to produce, print and distribute, deadlines are significantly shorter, ensuring that AVSA’s content is much more relevant and up to date than before.

In December, we’re also running our first-ever on-line competition, offering viewers the chance to win one of 20 Yamaha earphones. Check out the details here.

With many of our loyal readers already on holiday, and the end of the year looming, we’d like to thank every one of you for your loyal support. This is our last weekly update for the year, but we’ll resume operations in the second full week of January 2019.

Until then, happy holidays – and if you’re travelling, be safe!
