Next, we have John Atkinson's "As We See It" from the July 2004 issue, Absolute Values. JA struggles with the decision to run the $350k Wavac review: "What possibly needs to be said about an amplifier that costs as much as a house? That weighs half a ton?

Art Dudley's latest column, Listening #19, becomes radio-active. AD comments, "The [Tivoli] Model One isn't just a cheap toy that surprised everyone by turning out okay. It's the Rega tonearm of table radios"
Finally, we have Stereophile's Recording of July 2004, Chris Stamey: Travels In the South. Robert Baird notes, "If anyone is qualified to try to assemble an album of alt-rock/power pop, it is one Chris Stamey."
