RE: Stereophile / Do Your Homework

>it seems the player was faulty.

We received another sample in time to include a follow-up review in our
March issue. Yes, that first sample was faulty - it had apparently been
sent to other reviewers before Art Dudley. While I understand the economic
incentive for a distributor to limit the number of samples he has sent out
on loan for review, as Stereophile is the only publication that measures
the sample, it would make sense to send us a fresh out-of-the-box sample.

This is not unique to EAR, please note. We have reviews of 2 speakers
about to be published where it appeared that other reviewers had already had
the samples in their possession before they were sent to Stereophile. The
distributors are rolling the dice.
