    A sad sign of the times. The continued demise of brick and mortar audio salons, decline of physical media (CD's, SACD's), Oppo throwing in the towel, and now cutbacks at S'phile... does not bode well for the future of this hobby.

    Will be interesting to hear the "buzz" on all this at Axpona!

    Itís not all doom and gloom. The headphone business (a great avenue to introducing two channel Iím finding) is a $10 Billion a year industry and growing. All around the world (just visit Munich), hi end audio is growing. Younger generations are embracing it. The issues here in America are a little different.

    Well, entirely predictable from my perspective. Darwinism at its finest.

    Do note that the Axpona exhibitor list is a country mile long! Looks like a pretty strong showing despite any perceived gloom.
    Includes a Stereophile "Room", which I don't ever recall seeing before http://www.axpona.com/exhibitorsearch.asp?maploc=210
    Have fun!

    cheers,

    Oppo has moved on to augmented reality. As Mike noted, it is all not doom and gloom, markets evolve over time. I must say I am pretty happy with the evolution, some great systems and solutions available now that didn't exist 10 years ago. IMHO.

    Does anyone even read magazines at all? I think it has been 3 years since I last bought any magazine. I live in the Netherlands and I never see any audio magazines in the stores. I used to sometimes buy the Hifi+, Stereophile and I think there was one more. But finding a recent one that has interesting articles is/was rare.
