I was always told to seek the superlative, and where home entertainment is concerned, WSR makes sure that my reach always exceeds my grasp. Fortunately, in this case, it's a good thing. I can count on WSR to always go beyond what every other magazine in the industry can provide.

I wish I could afford the ultra wares I see covered in the magazine. Nevertheless, I am wiser because I have gained a sense of judgment through reading WSR. (I must admit to having a bit of common sense, though, since I have been using Monster Cable products for over 10 years!) I hope WSR will continue to ignite the interest in its audience as it has up to now.
