I don't think Isaac is trolling

Isaac has made a fairly strong case that Stereophile is evangelizing and promoting MQA, by referring to the Stereophile articles themselves, and conveying his displeasure about that, with reasons.

I could understand a little better if the Stereophile articles were opinion pieces, but they don't read like opinion pieces, opinion pieces don't normally read as gushy adulation, but rather as evidence based judgment. Well written opinion pieces generally present the different sides before expressing a conclusion.

So, I guess the question is: for what reason is Stereophile writing about MQA in a way that, to a fair reader, seems indistinguishable from an advertorial? Why is Stereophile allowing itself to be co-opted by MQA marketing?
