Hi, all...

What have been simply rumors is now official: Audio magazine is folding after over 50 years of continued publishing, with the February/March 2000 issue...

The V.P./Group Publisher has seen fit to kill one of the oldest and best audio-related magazines in the country--and the world, for that matter!--much like the Flachetti group did for Hi-Fi magazine, at al.

It's true that Audio was losing its technical luster for sometime now, but still managed to hire some of the best audio testers/reviewers in the world. Thus people like D.B, Keel, Joshep Giovanelli, Robert Long, and Edward. J. Foster, Riggs--to name but a few--will be sorely missed.

Have been mourning the loss of audio luminaries like Richard Heyser, David Clark, the incomparable Berth White, John Crabbe, Jon Sank, Marshall Leach, Professor Greiner, and other similar audio stars who worked for this publication, although not necessarily by death; a loss none the less.

The passing of Audio will definetely leave a huge whole in the technical field, and am afraid there aren't enough sources from which to learn and draw from. A dark day, indeed...
