Whatever happened to the Gold Star rating?
Dear What Hi-Fi Sound and Vision
Scanning through a few old mags the other day, WHFI used to give award winners gold stars. At the same time I looked at the first test you gave to the Cyrus CD6SE, and the review writer concluded: "The CD6SE is a landmark product that redefines the performance level at its price point. If we could award more than five stars, we would."
That got me thinking: If a product is really exceptional for its price bracket like the ATC SCM11s, Caspian M2 etc etc could you not reintroduce and award these products with the gold stars?
Exceptional: five gold stars; excellent: five red stars; very good: four red....
