The obligatory big finish. (Forum).

I purchased your entire back-order collection about two months ago for $70. This was money well spent! The $ensible Sound is the most informative, well-written, easily understood, honest and technically accurate audio magazine that I have ever read! Your philosophy, articles and reviews are diametrically opposed to the other so-called "high-end" publications--which is a huge relief! The elitist philosophy of Stereophile and The Absolute Sound that you must spend an exorbitant amount of money on components to reproduce quality sound is preposterous at best.

My background in forensic science, recording engineering and church sound system operation allow me to appreciate the technical aspects of music reproduction. My background as a baritone horn and electric bass player allows me to appreciate the artistic aspects of music reproduction. As the leader of a jazz/ fusion band that I was a proud member of once said to me, "Music is an art based on science using organized sounds as a means of expression." To paraphrase that definition as it applies to hi fidelity, "Hi fidelity is an art based on science using sensible recommendations by knowledgeable experts to select the most cost-effective components properly integrated in a listening environment that is conducive to the accurate reproduction of recorded music for optimal listening pleasure."

Again, thank you very much for an outstanding publication. You can look for my subscription in the coming weeks.
