That was the first lesson I learned in hi-fi. Sold off a very nice five year old Fisher 500 (tubed) receiver that I bought new from the dealer and bought one of those horrible AR integrated SS amps because I read Julian Hirsch's review in Stereo Review and believed it. Got rid of that POS in less than one month. That was a very long time ago (about 1966) and an expensive lesson for this young kid to learn.

Some of these "Reviewers" are full of it and are either liars, tone deaf or on the take. I'll forever be in debt to Julian Hirsch for teaching me a valuable lesson. I wish that I would have been able to "thank" Mr Hirsch before he died. Now all that's left would be to piss on his grave (if I could find it).
