    Re: The Absolute Sound Subscription

    I am 100% for as many digital subscriptions as possible. As long as I can download the issues as PDF files so a) I can use the PDF reader of my choice and b) I'm not locked into having to use someone else's app to access the content. TAS currently allows this, Stereophile forces you to use the Zinio app (or their own Zinio-branded app). What happens to my content when either Stereophile or Zinio go belly up?

    I also don't have an issue with my TAS digital subscription, but I'm doing the same thing as Projectman -- except using an Android tablet instead.
    Pass Labs XP-10, Odyssey Audio Stratos+ Monoblocks, OPPO UDP-205, Auralic Aries G1, Bryston BDA-3, Janszen zA1.1, SVS SB13-Ultra, Audioquest cabling, Panamax power conditioner

    With you on that, every time I have tried it, it’s too awkward with page flips and reduced size, despite able to zoom in.

    Maybe more old school, but having it in your hands and flip to where you want is second to none

    Yes, I and a number of other potential customers on TAS' Facebook group page have had the exact same problems. If memory serves from reading the posts back in mid-2019 on the FB page, the subscription failure modes have been a problem for over a year now.

    Lee is a good buddy, very experienced and proactive, so I am confident he is on the case and will get this problem resolved ASAP.

    Cheers.

    Re: The Absolute Sound Subscription

    That's good news. I actually think TAS is a good magazine. I'm looking forward to my digital copies. Hope it doesn't take too much longer. I'll keep checking to see if my digital magazine copies are activated.

    Many thanks for the feedback Lee. I have also had the same issues. Also, could you please see if the digital version can be made available the same day as the print version as my digital issues is always later. Hope the new app is ready soon. Thanks for your support.

    I've found the print version is much easier to read in the bathroom......

    Don't know when things are to be sorted out but I just checked my subscription and it's not working yet.
