If this has been raised previously, I'm sorry...but why are Magazine subscriber's not automatically afforded E-Edition access?

We are looking at a number of subscription 'packages' which would include both the print and digital editions, but the details are still being finalised.

I, for one have regularly subscribed over the years and previously would have welcomed the "E" addition as a bolt on to that subscription, however I do get increasingly annoyed at the number of electronic gadgets that find their way into an audiophile magazine, phones for example. What is this, What hifi and moblie /thingymajig monthly?

Phones aren't phones anymore, I listen to more music directly from my phone than I do anything else (typically four hours a day in the car).

Yep.

With with exception of FM, an occasional CD and (sometimes) Apple lossless from the iMac, all the rest of my listening is streamed from (or via) my iPhone.

I am doing this right now...

I could of course argue that the phone is not truly an audiophile device, however I get exactly where your at, so I cede to your argument, doesnt stop me ranting or being annoyed.

Personal observation, I wish I had never bought an android phone, back to iphone for me.........side rant

Thank goodness for that!

However, I am not using it via it's own DAC through earphones so it's just the source of a digital stream that gets processed by the Marantz.

I admit that the Marantz itself (as good as it is) is hardly an audiophile device. But then, I am not an audiophile so that's fine with me. (Who actually wants to be known as an 'audiophile'? Sounds illegal. Perhaps it should be.)

Hmm, that reminds me of a particularly volatile and unpleasant circumstance in a community close to Portsmouth, where the good folks confused paedophile with a rather scared local paediatrician. The resulting damage to his property and mindset was terrifying.

Urban myth. (I live a few miles from where this is reputed to have happened.)

It actually happened in Newport in Gwent...

... and there are fictional versions of the same story for many large housing estates around the country. (Anywhere that people want to defame neighbouring housing estates basically.)

This last section of this article sheds some light on the origin of the actual event (inspired by a campaign in the News Of The World apparently)...

I am now winding my neck in to the fully retracted position, nicely clarified though. Please note that I did not defame the specific area of Portsmouth
