who watches the watchers?

When we launched Stereophile’s website at the end of 1997, we decided that we would not reprint the magazine’s most popular features, including the biannual “Recommended Components” listings and Michael Fremer’s monthly “Analog Corner” column. We were concerned that doing so would cannibalize magazine sales. As it turned out, we were wrong—and so the latest “Recommended Components” is available on our free-access website day-and-date with the publication of the April and October issues in which it appears. And starting with Mikey’s very first “Analog Corner,” from July 1995, I have been posting his column on our AnalogPlanet.com website. At the time of writing, I had just finished HTML-encoding Michael’s October 2004 column, and fell over an exchange between him and popular technology writer Walter Mossberg, at that time a contributor to…

What fun! Editor: Thank you for keeping Stereophile an “underground” publication of audio reviews. I feel like I am a member of a secret “Greek” society that conveys the truth to its members through cryptic messages in both the listening and, especially, in the measurements sections. Thank you, John Atkinson, for guiding your magazine to produce reviews that continue the model by [Hi-Fi News editor] John Crabbe that you emulate. —Craig Rutten Acoustic Transducers Laboratories craigrutten@juno.com MQA and ad blocking Editor: Since Stereophile’s technical credibility went south, with its continuing praise of MQA, I will no longer be buying the magazine at the newsstand. I will use an ad blocker when reading your music articles online, and I have written to all of your advertisers letting them know of my decision. —Kenneth Jonge kenneth.jonge@me.com What is our holy grail?

industry update

UK: BRISTOL Paul Messenger This year, Audio T, organizers of the Bristol Hi-Fi Show, which took place February 22–25, celebrated 50 years in hi-fi, and have rebranded the event by omitting the tag “home cinema.” This change didn’t seem to shorten the long queues of attendees forming outside the Marriott City Centre Hotel Bristol each morning before the doors opened. An Audiojumble took place a week before this year’s Bristol Hi-Fi Show. I rarely report on such events—the English Audiojumble changes little from year to year—but while the event seemed busy as ever, this year I saw many more stalls selling new and used vinyl. This confirmed vinyl enthusiast was happy enough browsing the second-hand bins, but I thought it might be worth drawing readers’ attention to the continuing good health of the…

cutting-edge phonography from top wing and hifiction

For a phono cartridge to generate current and voltage, something must move: a coil of wire (as in a moving-coil cartridge), or a magnet (as in a moving-magnet type), or a tiny piece of iron (a moving-iron type). In those rare cartridges that depart from the electricity-generating principle of the ones described above, it can be a displacement-measuring device in which a moving shutter modulates a light source to vary a supplied voltage (as in an optical cartridge), or one in which voltage is modulated when a tiny chip of silicon crystal is squeezed by a moving element, which varies the chip’s electrical resistance (as in a strain-gauge cartridge). But regardless of what it is that moves in a cartridge, something has to. TOP WING SUZAKU (RED SPARROW) CORELESS STRAIGHT-FLUX CARTRIDGE…
