1. From Steve Owades
I noticed in the front of the latest
print issue of Sound & Vision (which used to be Stereo Review)
that the magazine has recently been acquired by AVTech Media,
This British entity already owned the British audio magazines
HiFi News and HiFi Choice, and they have also now acquired Stereophile
I guess times are tough in the publishing biz, and I hope these
titles can continue.
I subscribe to Stereophile because it is
a mix of audiophilia and hard technical tests, fact and fancy.
Like Audio Magazine in the old days. And the Fringe.
I marvel that British seem to thrive with
circulation figures that are low by US standards. I believe
Audio had a circulation 0f 75, 000 when it folded. The venerable
British classical review magazine Gramophone has a circulation
of 25,000. Maybe the English are willing to work for less.
