Doesn't everyone? I see that they lay out their policy in great detail, not sure if they're any worse than others, https://www.discountmags.com/privacy

People still read streophile? I thought they've run out of hyperbole and flowery language to describe their ads in disguise if reviews. It's comical to see adjectives usually reserved for tatse, smell, color to describe sound. And the mag is full of ads for snake oil.

Waste of paper. The world will be a better place when magazines and junk mail go away for good.

LOL..I agree with you somewhat
These was a day when these audio magazines would call it like it is...
As in the blurb from years ago of the Pioneer SC07...a $2000 MSRP receiver at the time

"Driving 4-ohm loads was an entirely different story. The SC-07 simply fell apart when running full bandwidth (20Hz to 20kHz) continuous power measurements. As I tested at frequencies above 5kHz with only 1 channel driven, the internal cooling fan would instantly come on right before the receiver would go into gross distortion and shut down at levels above 100 watts. With two-channels driven, I was able to squeeze out a clean 150wpc at less than 0.5% THD. Anything higher would again run the amps into gross distortion and shut off the receiver. I was a bit perplexed in how the receiver managed to better cope with 2 channels driven over 1 and could only surmise that it had something to do with symmetrical load balancing on the power supply. How this receiver was awarded the THX Ultra2 rating was a bit perplexing to me"

They tended to compare units to those that were at the top of the line....which they dont do anymore

Rather they seem to be looking for something good to say about everything they test...as to not aggravate their advertising base

what's funny about most of those magazines is that they are so full of ads or native advertising, that is where they make their money They give away the subscriptions here and there to keep their subscriber numbers up for advertisers. Some of them, if you call to cancel, will offer to extend your subscription in order to get you to stay.

I subscribe to both Stereophile and Absolute Sound and have for years. If a component in a review doesn't have adequate heat sinking or doesn't do well into 4 Ohm loads or doesn't do well in the reviews they still point it out. Its just that they aren't so blunt about it since many of these companies do advertising with them. What I like about Stereophile is they do bench tests on their reviews and most other reviewers don't do this. I actually like Stereophile and the criticism here really isn't warranted! You just need to be able to read between the lines on these reviews.
