A REAL Audiophile Magazine

As I mentioned in a previous post, I'm really sick and fed up with the traditional audiophile scene, because it's filled with ridiculously priced gear, irresponsible journalism, and hard line subjectivism. I'm talking about magazines like Stereophile and The Absolute Sound.

Since I'm much more of an objectivist, and don't buy into $$$$ speaker cables and all the other BS in the "audiophile" world, I've been searching high and low for a source that isn't based on subjectivism, blatently false science and all the other crap prevelent in the audiofool world today.

I have finally found that source. It is .....The Audio Critic. It's a small, low budget operation, but don't let that fool you. This publication is dynamite. They debunk audiophile BS and false science like there's no tomorrow. Oh, and their reviews of equipment are thorough, and they take LOTS of measurements. Plus, each issue has an editorial cartoon.

They stopped publishing a print version in 2005, but have 14 print issues up in PDF form (for free) on their website. From 2005 onward, the magazine has been in Blog format. It's good reading!!!
