Reason #4 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review to get the facts on equipment and industry news. I started reading your magazine as a consumer and found your level of education and technical detail refreshing when compared to the audio/video mass I read before.Now I run my own custom home theatre company and find your mag invaluable in keeping up with the direction this industry is going.
