"...group publisher Tony Catalano hinted that the "Audio" demise was actually a result of problems in the high-end sector of the audio business..." (quoted from the new "Stereophile") according to that statement, one may draw the conclusion, that high-end audio is entering "crisis" (look "Fi" "MFSL"..etc) I dont think that is the case, but the fact that "two chanel" audio, as we know it, isn't becoming "consumers" choice any more. Look, DVD's Home Theather...etc.
As far as the a replacement for Audio's October issue goes, in the early through mid '90's The Absolute Sound (TAS) put out some excellent "Guide to High End Sound" issues. They were really good and the section introductions, such as amplifiers, were very informative and well written. Perhaps if enough of us asked TAS to start the practice again, they might listen. Surely the advertising revenues alone would make the costs worth while.
Audio and Stereo Review were put out by the same publisher, and they felt they didn't need the two magazines, especially with the popularity fo home theatre, apparently Audio lost out to SR's Sound and Vision. I liked Audio better, especially when it brought me back down to the real world from Stereophile. Jeff
