comes from an engineer over at vintage:
He's not on the take...
somewhere along the way. Before HH Labs, he published the Audio League Report. There are a few issues floating around the web. His reviews were very subjective, and he frequently printed negative reviews due to awful sonics. HH labs handled reviews for High Fidelity, Stereo Review, Electronics World and a few others....essentially every mainstream audio/hobbyist magazine except Audio. Good reviews sold ads and kept him employed. I did read somewhere that there were more than a few reviews that did not see print because the equipment either did not work, or sounded so bad that it was just about impossible to spin into positive copy.
There is no good reason to evaluate and review something that sounds bad.
If I'm interested in an XYZ amp, and three different reviewers say they couldn't get it to sound good in their systems, or that it sounded great, but caught fire, then the negative review has done me a great service.
that was BOLD of Jerry to relate that.
