    I didn't know this, dcmfan. Do you know if the back issue archive is complete?

    I can only open issues back to January 2008 online. It'd be nice if it went back to 1956!

    That's bad news. Dealkiller for me. The older issues were so much better — the reviews covered a much broader range of products (and prices), with serious technical analysis, and some very good writing. It also had lots more music reviews than other "audio" mags. And best of all, there was a wall between the editorial and advertising departments.

    Maybe the archive is a "work in progress" — all it takes is one intern scanning two or three issues a day and uploading them. Eventually everything will be there.

    You're a subscriber. Could you write them and ask if that's the plan?

    I hope that they digitize the whole lot - I'd gladly pay the entry fee to reread the 70s issues that I tossed when pressured to clean up. Not by my wife, by the way - significant others often get bad press here, but my wife is pretty tolerant.
