I'm with Stuart on that one, I'd also like my own wood burning pizza oven..

I love the reference on the front cover to a "Monster system with 23 tubes" - my now retired 300B amps had a grand total of 24 tubes including the rather elaborate power supplies, and the system in that incarnation a total of 39 tubes excluding the tuner. Not sure what sort of figure of merit this is, as I like my much simpler 2 tube GM70 monoblocks better..

That poor poor magazine... I haven't seen the latest one apparently. But it is so thin, scrawny, and don'tcha just love that crossword puzzle?

Ah dear... maybe they will manage to pull it out of the death dive it is in. Shannon is a very nice person. Unfortunately, she knows almost nothing about audio. On-the-job training it seems.

It's growing and I have noticed more adverts in recent editions. I'm not terribly thrilled with the quality of most of the designs, but I will support the magazine on an indefinite basis as I think we still need a diy magazine here in the U.S.
