With so many audio shows to cover this year, we are concentrating our
resources on those we think most relevant to a US-based readership. We
cover all of our writers' travel expenses covering shows, whether they be
staff or freelance.

Paul Messenger has written Munich reports for Stereophile for several years
and will be doing so again this year.
Where oh where is the Messenger of Munich?
that Munich has become among the most important shows of the year, and the primary focus of many European manufacturers when introducing new products. Nearly all of these products will be sold in the US.....
Begs the question of why wouldn't this show be "relevant to a US-based readership" ?
Streaming and analogue coverage will be beneficial, albeit not via the main website or magazine. I assume Mr. Messenger will cover everything else for SP ?
There will be plenty of coverage of this show from other publications. Who really cares what Stereophile does?

I was thinking that the significant product launches would be repeated at
the LA Show 2 weeks later.
Those were my thoughts exactly. As a matter of fact, many are predicting CES for high end audio will be phased out, and Munich will be the The Place.
JVS was sent last year...TAS is sending 4-5 writers. Even bloggers are
Meant to say in yesterday's posting that we are sending Michael Lavorgna,
editor of our AudioStream site, and Michael Fremer, editor of our
AnalogPlanet site, to Munich. Their coverage will appear on those sites, not
Stereophile, of course.
Jana could have been sent for some beautiful pictures.
It is good to know that TEN is sending them. Always enjoy MF's coverage.
How about taking a break from this pathetic crusade? Grow up. Move on. Read a different magazine. Play sports. Talk to you friends. Stare at the mirror. Enough already.
Geez, and I'm not even a subscriber.
