Just wondered when the September digital issue was available. Can anyone enlighten me? Previous months seemed to be simultaneously available when the printed one went on sale.
Roksan Caspian Pre amp, Caspian Mono Power amp x 2, NAD M51 DAC, B&W 805 Signature, Roksan Radius turntable, Denon-1713UD, MF phono & headphone amps, PS3, Mac/AE/Apple TV
I believe it's imminent, but we're rather in the hands of Zinio on this one: files were supplied last week.

Yep, should be any time now - it's just taken them a little longer due to the extra 52-page supplement on the end of the issue! We'll let you know when it goes live.

Okay, thanks for the information.
We're chasing Zinio this morning, so shouldn't be long now
Andy Clough is Brand Editor of What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision and whathifi.com
Afternoon Andy, was there any feedback from Zinio? My September issue hasn't come through yet.
We have this afternoon OK'd the digital edition with Zinio, so it should now be up in however long it takes Zinio to put it live.
I'll let everyone now as soon as it's been uploaded to the Zinio site. We have no direct control over that, so we're in their hands.
Good news! The digital edition of our September 2011 edition – complete with 52-page Ultimate Guide to High End – is now available for download on Zinio. You'll find the extra Ultimate Guide magazine follows on immediately from the last page of the main issue. Go to the 'science & tech section' to get your digital copy. Clickety.

Just one remark, is it possible to make the image quality better? When you click on an article, the pictures are pixelated.
Have you downloaded the file completely? We've just checked on several displays and computers, and they look fine to us.
Indeed. All 200+ pages looking mighty fine on my iPad
Please let us know if you continue to have problems (and references to specific pages, and how you're viewing the issue, would be useful).
Yes, I downloaded it completely.
But it's not that the images are completely pixelated, but for example, if you take a look at the back panel of the yamaha receiver on page 8, I can't even read the HDMI1-... prints. Same with the text at the speakercable connectors. If you know what is normally printed there, you can make something of it, but if you don't you'll never know what is written there. It's just blurry. The impedance ratings on the back of the amp are also unreadable, and since that is something that is seldomly refered to in a test, should be visible (imo).
btw, I use Zinio Reader 4 on my laptop and I store the magazines on my laptop (so no online reading)
But you can't read all that in the print magazine either. Yes, it's possible to read all this information on the original picture taken by our photographer, but given that one is a 6144x4096 300dpi file running to 3.5MB, it's obviously not possible to show every picture at that resolution in the Zinio digital edition, as it would take forever to download the magazine!
The Zinio edition is based on the files used for the print magazine, so we're limited to that resolution.
Yep, the digital edition is currently an exact copy of the printed magazine, with pictures of the same size and resolution. (Though with benefits of active hyperlinks in text/ads).
We would like to move towards offering options of image zooming (both here on the website and in digital edtiions), not least to showcase the fact that we shoot all our product pictures at high resolutions! However, that's for the future....
