We get it. You're not a fan. That means you get to not buy his magazine, or Stereophile. And that is the extent of your powers over other's say in the matter.

Well I got my box full of magazines this morning! Took the elevator down to the mailroom and came back with a box of magazines, a box with an SME-3009, and a dress designed by Amy Winehouse that my girlfriend ordered online. It was like Christmas all over again!

First- I didn't know they were digest sized! That's really cool. More portable, and they look better on the shelf. These were made to be kept. The seller also threw in an old digest sized copy of Absolute Sound, with the 23 issues of Listener. That makes for a lot of reading this winter (and our first big snow is on the way....). I can't wait to dig into the stack!

I haven't been home, at least not while awake, but will be in a bit. Finally. I started reading a review of a passive pre- its nice to see reviews from folks that are talented at writing, and seem to have some actual personality. That is my big complaint for TAS and Stereophile today- I like the reviews, but there's no personality, or at least very little of it.

Yup, he sure can write, and he has lots of personality. Love him or hate him, which is just how it should be!

I hear you on this, it's something that's crossed my mind many a time in recent years. Hmm, I think I already mentioned that in this thread...

Anyway, you've had your 12 hours, time to send them along, I'd like to read a couple.

One way to handle such things is to ask members to stop it, and that's what happened here, and they did. Your post is a comment on moderation, and you need to stop that. If you see a post that you believe requires moderation, don't post about it in the forums, report it or contact a moderator.

Hold on now, I still have 22 3/4 issues to get through! So are I read a review of rebuilt Quad 57s and a passive preamp. I think another thing I like about this magazine is that Dudley and the rest of the writers seem to share a lot of the same ideas I've come to believe in reproducing music at home- as far as what works better than other things, and a general distaste for the dogmatic approach that a lot of the press, and audiophiles, bring to the discussion. Sort of an "anything goes" as long as it sounds good- but certainly some things sound much better than other things.

I'm bringing a few issues with me on a flight today- should make the travel a bit more interesting, and I'll finally be able to dig into a few. They're small and portable and packed with knowledge and good writing.

I think you are seeing why I miss Listener so much.
