In Reply to: Hate to join the ranks of Old Fart, but I do miss the "old" TAS. posted by Bosh on June 11, 2002 at 20:54:16:
You are not alone. I don't like the new look of TAS. Although i respect Robert Harley a lot, i wonder whether we really need another Stereophile.
But if this change of direction is crucial for the survival of TAS, so be it.
I see TAS as trying to replicate Fi more than SP.
More and smaller reviews, budget components in every issue, at least 1/3 of the mag devoted to music all look more like the late Fi than the current SP.
I found the old magazine's always being on the knife edge of survival had a certain appeal....
