Ha, I got mine early this month. She was a welcome sight too. It rained all day here and I got soaked off and on. Driving home, all I wanted was a hot cup of coffee and some audio relaxation. But, I enjoyed the hearth and home just a little more with the latest issue as a welcome surprise.
In a previous thread I had mentioned that I was going to get one of those Oppo players to replace the dead player in our bedroom and report back as to whether or not it really sounds worth a hoot. Well, Wes beat me to the punch in the May issue.
JA gives the PSB Alpha B1 the FULL review treatment as opposed to a 200 word essay on how a budget component is "good for the money." And, he runs them through the gauntlet in his he-man rig. How cool is that?
Jim Austin, in the "How We See It column" nails down what I have long thought with respect to audio and art.
Dudley gets his own budget component to review in the new Rega P1. And, yes, it spins 1% fast. Surprise! It's a Rega!
If you thought that Sam would probably be reviewing his own budget component, being the king of frugality and all, you would be wrong! Ha, you could add up the cost of ALL of the components JA, WP and AD review this month and not even come to close to the price of the amp Sam reviews this m onth.
Perhaps the world has turned upside down and the magnetic poles have already shifted?
