Re: What's your favorite home theater or audio/video magazine?

I can't say I have ever purchased a stereo or home theater magazine. Seems I get the bulk of my information from the forums. Is that so bad?

Forums will no doubt give you more user experience and should offer a wider variety of information on products.

Little off topic here

I read all the forums I can to get AV knowledge. Though if you go to my house, instead of Cosmo and glamour, you see Popular science on my coffee table...

Re: What's your favorite home theater or audio/video magazine?

I've subscribed to to a bunch of home theater magazines just to see what they offer: Sound & Vision, Home Theater, Perfect Vision and Widescreen Review. I find that Perfect Vision and Widescreen Review fit my needs best with some in depth reviews with detailed but understandable technical material. Greg Rogers at WSR is particularly good on video topics and Joe kane (from Digital Video Essentials fame) is a regular contributor. WSR also seems to do a good job of DVD evaluation.

For audio I've just about given up. Audio was probably the best commercial magazine, and I tried a number of the boutique journals but most eventually folded. I now read Audio Express just to keep my toe in the water, and they have a lot of DIY projects to keep things interesting.

Were I to choose a favorite, it would be to admit that at least one of them was any good.

One that I haven't seen mentioned here is a terrific little rag out of Montanna called, "HDTV Etc." It recently absorbed "DVD Etc." and does a consistently good job. One of the best things about it is the way that it does every review in the same format so, when comparing two pieces of gear (i.e. a Denon and a Yamaha Receiver) you really feel like you are comparing apples to apples.

Hey Daryl and welcome to the Shack!

I had forgot about DVD, Etc. I received a few issues of that once but never subscribed. I did find it interesting but already had a couple going at the time. HDTV, Etc. sounds interesing.
