From A to B

In the October 2011 issue this turntable got a rating of A in the Recommendation listings. In the April 2012 issue it was changed to a B. does anyone know the reason for this? It was chosen as 2011 Analog product of the year and Harry (oops) really likes it. Thanks.

Mistake on our part. The Classic 3 is reinstated in Class A in the April 2013 issue, which will hit newsstands in a couple of weeks.
