STEREOPHILE COMPLAINT FORM

195.92.198.82

IF YOU FEEL LIKE WHINING ABOUT STEREOPHILE MAG, PLEASE COMPLETE THE FOLLOWING FORM By PLACING AN X IN THE BOXES THAT APPLY TO YOU

I, [INSERT NAME HERE] am

[ ] amused [ ] bemused [ ] ticked-off [ ] blowing steam out of my ears
[ ] incandescent with rage

at Stereophile Mag because:

--------------------
GENERAL
--------------------
[ ] It's elitist and snobby
[ ] It's too low-brow
[ ] It doesn't feature entry-level products
[ ] It features too many entry-level products
[ ] It only caters to the hi-end mainstream
[ ] It only caters to the lunatic fringe
[ ] It has too many articles from the same old crew
[ ] It has too many articles from writers I've never heard of
[ ] It doesn't have enough pages
[ ] It has too many pages filled with stuff *I'm* not interested in
[ ] I love you, hate you, love you, hate you, love you.....
[ ] I just enjoy complaining, even though I read it cover to cover
[ ] Where's my copy?
[ ] Stereophile posts always get a lot of responses and I need the attention
[ ] Jonathon Scull, 'nuff said.

--------------------
REVIEWS
--------------------

I think their reviews are:

[ ] amusing [ ] boring [ ] incomprehensible [ ] biased [ ] suspicious
[ ] dangerous [ ] subversive

because:

[ ] I have convinced myself that they only review advertiser's products
[ ] I have convinced myself that they review the same brands over and over
[ ] It sure looks like there's no smoke without fire to me
[ ] They never review any of the products that I own
[ ] They never review the products *I'm* interested in.
[ ] Compare the measurements with the reviews: these guys are obviously deaf as posts
[ ] I heard a rumour from a friend of a friend in the business, well I can't repeat it here...
[ ] They use too many words I don't understand
[ ] They wouldn't review the 1.2 watt SET amp that my Uncle makes in his shed.
[ ] It's obviously a conspiracy, I have informed the authorities
[ ] Jonathon Scull, 'nuff said.

-----------------------
RECOMMENDED COMPONENTS
-----------------------

I think the Recommended components list is:

[ ] indispensable [ ] unrepresentative [ ] obviously wrong [ ] bogus [ ] a waste of paper
[ ] biased [ ] suspicious

because:

[ ] They incomprehensibly left some of my gear out of the list
[ ] They dropped some of my gear from the latest list before I could sell it
[ ] Check the manufacturers of the components they list: nudge, nudge, know what I mean?
[ ] Please tell me what to buy, I am unable to think for myself
[ ] It makes the magazine too big and heavy: I'm such a wimp
[ ] I never read it
[ ] Prizes are for pussies
[ ] Jonathon Scull, 'nuff said.


--------------------
ADVERTISING
--------------------

as for the advertising in Stereophile:

[ ] there's way too much
[ ] there's not enough from the brands *I'm* interested in
[ ] too many ads for hi-end brands
[ ] too many ads for low-end gear
[ ] Hah! a full page ad for a piece they reviewed! Is any more proof necessary?
[ ] They ran an ad for a car, I am devastated
[ ] They ran an ad for Technics, I am mortified
[ ] They ran an ad for a Men's Magazine
     I am: [ ] scandalized [ ] frightened [ ] grateful [ ] horny
[ ] Jonathon Scull, 'nuff said.


--------------------
MAGAZINE COVERS
--------------------

I just have to complain about this Month's cover because:

[ ] There is a mass market Receiver on the cover
[ ] It has a Harmon/Madrigal product on the cover, I hate them
[ ] Yet again, they didn't put any of my gear on the cover
[ ] A PC soundcard?????? What were you thinking?????
[ ] I have convinced myself there's an obvious bias towards products on the cover
[ ] The color doesn't match my eyes
[ ] You never out anything put hardware on the cover, how about some pretty pictures?
[ ] I can't think of anything else to complain about
[ ] Jonathon Scull, naked??? OHMYGAWD!!!!!


--------------------
DO THIS, OR ELSE
--------------------

I demand that Stereophile:

[ ] cancels my subscription immediately (don't worry, I'll renew it again in a month or two)
[ ] features more of the components that *I'm* interested in
[ ] includes all of my gear in the next Recommended Components list
[ ] Only reviews products from small, cottage industry manufacturers
[ ] only reviews products from non-advertisers
[ ] ceases all advertising forthwith, but don't you dare raise the cover price
[ ] puts pictures of cute, fluffy bunnies on the cover
[ ] never carries ads for washing machines, I hate them
[ ] runs more ads for Men's magazines
