About the mag
Having just read the latest edition of What Smart Phone & USB Cable (formerly WHFSV), is it me, or is the content getting less and less ? I have to say that the mag has fallen way behind H**e C****a in terms of interest and amount of content.
Frankly, if it continues like this, I have to say I will become an ex customer.
Ive just renewed my subsription after being away for a bit (lost my job,but back in the realms of the employed now) just wondering if I will get the May edition as my first mag as I know it can take a while for new subsciptions to be finalised.It doesnt matter which is my fist one just dont want to buy it twice.
With the workstation (desktop) speakers review in the May issue, here are two other top notch speakers that would be worthwhile to review (I've auditioned and would recommend both, depending on size/spectrum preference):
- PSB Alpha PS1
- Emotiva Pro airmotiv4 (the 5 and 6 also, plus their reference line are worth looking at.)
In addition, concerning the Audioengine D1 DAC, I've broken in three samples here the past couple of months and found considerable negative difference in sound quality with one of them. May be worth checking again.
I've just read the April edition and to say I'm a little confused is an understatement.
Page 71: James Haywood asks about pairing a Yamaha RX-V673 with the BW MT-60D's. "Not the best choice..." comes the answer! "The speakers simply won't operate to their full potential". OK then, read on until you get to page 114 and read the system builder. What's the recommendation to pair with the Yamaha RX-V673? You've guessed it, the BW MT-60D's!!
Well I hadn't read a copy of WHF for some time so I thought I'd download a copy on to my Kindle.
£4.99, you've got to be kidding.
Does it cost this much on other downloadable platforms, I seem to remember others saying it was £3,29
What are the chances of WHFSV being made available as a purchasable, downloadable PDF?
I don't have an iPad, and even if I did, I'd still really prefer to read the mag on my 27" iMac.
I'm sure ten or fifteen years ago five stars was plenty.SQ,build quality,features and price and you were done.
I don't feel this is quite doing the job anymore.There is a much wider spread of products now and the level of complexity for even say, a smart phone is mind bending when compared to a mobile phone review of even six or seven years ago.
And i'm also sure that in another ten years they'll be losing a star if they aren't able to instantly detect an incoming missile attack from another country
... and my TV is reviewed. Arrgh!
Are there any plans to release WHFS&V via Google's magazine store?
I am impressed with the way magaziones are set up on this service and the formatting works well, even on 7" devices like the Nexus 7.
The cost and ease of use mean that I am planning to subscribe to two magazine titles that I only usually buy every few months.
It would be great to see What Hi-Fi in this format as well.
