RE: I don't think Isaac is trolling

>Just to clarify, I'm not suggesting that the pieces are advertorials...

I understand.

>I understand that Stereophile doesn't accept sponsored content.

We don't usually. But we have done infrequently and then under the
guidelines from ASME, the American Society of Magazine Editors, which
include that such advertorials be marked "Advertisement," that they not
be written by the magazine's editors or writers, and that they not be
prepared by the magazine's production staff. I will leave it to the
inmates to decide if other magazines observe those guidelines.

>Only that to this reader they are indistinguishable from advertorials,
>which I think is unfortunate.

As I said before, we are reporting our own reactions to the comparisons
that were performed at the LAAS. I certainly don't regard it as my
responsibility to include either the negative opinions of people like
Isaac Garvey or the unfounded opinions of those who have never
performed such comparisons in our show reports.
