why the limited number of Stereophile recommended components in the A and B class ?
So, I am a stereophile subscriber and find that the recommended components issue is my least favorite issue of the year. Just a lot of regurgitated reviews that are all over the place. The super expensive amplifiers and preamplifiers are there in the "A+" and a slightly interesting mix of components that are more affordable make their way into the top spots against the Wilson Audio's and the Boulder amplifiers. But not enough! I know I have been very Bryston centric for a few years but my God! Stereophile recognizes their DAC's and Digital music players but completely skips over their power amplifier products, preamplifiers, and phono stages. This slight has gone on for years! I can only conclude that this is purposeful. I find it frustrating that their newer cubed series amps in particular have been completely ignored by them. Now I have only done critical auditioning on maybe 10 other brands of solid state and tubed amps but I know for a fact that the current versions of Bryston power amps should merit a minimum of a solid "B" rating in the Stereophile rating solar system, what say you?
