Now On Newsstands: 2011 Stereophile Buyer's Guide
On newsstands now, right beside the December 2010 issue of Stereophile, you should find the 2011 Stereophile Buyer’s Guide. In its 164 pages, you will find technical specifications and prices for over 4500 audio components. That includes everything from the speed accuracy of a Rega turntable to the full-power bandwidth of Audio Research’s latest integrated amplifier to the frequency response of a Wilson loudspeaker to whether NuForce sells speaker wire. (They do.)
Yes, the 2011 Stereophile Buyer’s Guide includes detailed listings for: LP Playback (cartridges, phono preamps, tonearms, and turntables), Digital Components (digital players and DACs), Amplification (power amps, preamps, and integrateds), Loudspeakers, Subwoofers, Headphones, and Cables.
In addition, we’ve also included a complete index of manufacturer websites, so that you know where to go to find more information on the products you most desire. I’ll quote Ariel Bitran, in his opening essay to the Guide:
Whether you’re looking for a new cartridge or an entirely new system, we feel this Guide will be instrumental in your search. It offers no final answers, but it does provide some essential supplies for your audio journey. How you use all the information is up to you. And that may be the most beautiful part of it all.
The 2011 Stereophile Buyer’s Guide will be on newsstands through February 8, and can also be found in our new Stereophile Shop. (Hint: It makes a great stocking stuffer!)
