1.  From Steve Owades

“I noticed in the front of the latest print issue of Sound & Vision (which used to be Stereo Review) that the magazine has recently been acquired by AVTech Media, Ltd. (/ This British entity already owned the British audio magazines HiFi News and HiFi Choice, and they have also now acquired Stereophile ( I guess times are tough in the publishing biz, and I hope these titles can continue.“

I subscribe to Stereophile because it is a mix of audiophilia and hard technical tests, fact and fancy. Like Audio Magazine in the old days. And the Fringe.

I marvel that British seem to thrive with circulation figures that are low by US standards. I believe Audio had a circulation 0f 75, 000 when it folded. The venerable British classical review magazine Gramophone has a circulation of 25,000. Maybe the English are willing to work for less.
