stereo review magazine

any thoughts on the old 'stereo review' magazine!! i've read them since the early 70's to their end!!!
the TU717 was the best thing they made...and we sold many of those into a market 50 miles from decent FM programming ( Cleveburg or Toledo )

we were a dealer ( Audio Connection in Ohio )

Audionics of Oregon outsold the other stuff 10:1... IF the customer..listened....
pontiac aztek baby... walter-white-mobile for the meth king ... BAD ASS! 不不不不
I've been on the same path that others here have trod. Used to read Stereo Review and then discovered Stereophile Magazine and my eyes were opened and my wallet was emptied.
Stereo Review wasn't bad, but Stereophile has really gone downhill. I have yet to see any of my equipment reviewed in their mag.The reccomended products never seem to change much from year to year.They seem to have their favorites .
For the beginner, Stereo Review was a good primer. Of course, it's main purpose was to sell ads, and to get freebies for the testers. I even blame them for the newer measurements manufactorers started using, "Power at 100cps, one channel driven", rather than full range with extreme frequency rolloff db's, etc. I don't remember their ever writing about damping factor or interactions of amps with the motor effects of moving speaker drivers.
