Reason #48 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
In addition to Widescreen Review, I subscribe to several audio/video publications, such as Sound And Vision, Stereophile, Stereophile Guide To Home Theater, Audio Video Interiors, and peruse through the myriad of British audio video publications when I go to Borders, Barnes & Nobles, or Tower Records.

To stay on top of what’s happening in the audio/video industry, you read Widescreen Review. Enough said.
