Unfortunately most of the hi-fi press today do little more than serve as the advertising shop window of what is mainly high end audio.

Any attempt to purport to serious journalism disappeared decades ago. Never ever take the word of an audio journalist seriously.

They’re not bad people per se, but just hacks trying to hold down jobs on behalf of their advertising departments.

Treat them all as only advertising brochures and you can’t go far wrong.


You're right in that mortality rates for other ailments are plumetting but the gruesome reason might not be the massaging of stats that has been reported.

It could also be that Coronavirus is getting to those unfortunate people first. It's well established that those with underlying conditions are at the greatest risk.

As nonoise posted above, we still don't know (or haven't been told yet) of the long term after effects of this disease.

Let's try to stay safe, at least until we have a whole load more of the facts. Should be interesting to see what the effects have been on those affected pro athletes once sports are back up and running.

But I agree with you about the amp.
