RE: Stereophile Has New Art Direction.

>I find the new stereophile much more difficult to read. It seems the print is
>smaller...

This comment has been made by others - it puzzles me as the type face and
size are the same as they were before. It should even be a little easier to
read, as the change to a "ragged right" column eliminates the cramped
kerning (word and letter space) issues that a justified column occasionally
produces.

What we have made smaller are the graphs in the measurements sections in
order to free up space for more more photos of the components being
reviewed. I felt this a justifiable trade-off as the graphs can still be viewed at
full size in our Web review reprints. But if the type were larger, this would
force us to publish less photos, which we felt a step in the wrong direction..

My thanks to those who expressed posiive comments about the new look
for Stereophile.
