Interesting perspective on the situation.
An idealistic approach on this would be the Consumers Reports/Comsumers Union model: anonymously purchase samples from real dealers and go from there. CU isn't perfect esp considering their tendency for covert political agendas but they get closer to the ideal. I also realize high performance audio reviewing won't be going this way and may actually be heading the other way (pay-to-play) as web based zines replace print.
...reviews audio equipment, too. Do you find their audio reviews useful?
The audio review magazines are entertainment for a hobby and are struggling to stay in business with the aging population.
...sometimes CR has been useful in the past but they really don't do HiPo audio...at least the last time I looked. And yeah, the remaining print mags (and ezines) are entertaining reads more than anything else these days, at least for me. As such, there are better ways to be entertained so on the cusp of letting my two subs expire.
