I've known this for quite sometime, but occasionally they make it so easy that it's laughable. I acquired a subscription to Home Theater free as part of a promotion and I can hardly wait until April for it to run out. This magazine is doubtlessly the worst drivel in the marketplace and Stereophile Guide to Home Theater outclasses it in virtually every aspect. The March 2002 issue though hammers the point home that Home Theater magazine thinks its readers are morons. If you have access to the March 2002 issue, read the first two letters to the editor and Mike Wood's thoroughly ridiculous answers. In the first one, his answer as to why DVDs all have a wide dynamic range is "Recording engineers and film directors are mostly deaf" In the second one, a reader asks why Home Theater magazine never prints a bad review -- which is true -- and Mike Wood's evasive answer actually contains the truth -- if you read between the lines. Mr. Wood spouts some nonsense about how they only review 4% of all released equipment so therefore it is statistically possible for them to never review a bad piece -- which is complete bunk. But the truth is revealed when Mr. Wood tries to be slick and state that they actually do print bad reviews -- funny Mike, I've never seen one. Mike Wood says, "We do, of course, [print bad reviews] and I have a list of angry manufacturers who no longer advertise with us to prove it." So right there in black & white, Mike Wood admits that Home Theater magazine writes reviews to cater to their advertisers and not in the interest of informing their readers -- who they apparently think are as dumb as the gear they review. Here's hoping they go out of business soon and spare the Home Theater world more of their worthless drivel.
