Stereophile is a magazine published monthly by emapusa. The topic, as can be guessed by the name is high quality audio
recordings and equipment.
Stereophile provides reviews as well as detailed sonic analyses of new stereo equipment. This includes both tube and solid state amplifiers, preamps, CD
s, cartridges, cabling, power conditioners, speakers
and pretty much anything else that you can use with a stereo. There is an 'Analog Corner' column the focuses specifically on turntable issues such as new tonearm releases to proper cartridge alignment.
Additionally, they feature reviews of new musical releases, and contrary to the snobby, orchestro-centric stereotype that audiophiles are associated with, they will review NIN
right along side Brahms
. There are also keen to point out the quality of the recording itself, something that is totally overlooked by mainstream reviewers.
