Whest, PS Audio Phono Preamp Reviews on Audiophile Audition

Tuesday, January 13, 2009

Audiophile Audition has posted a pair of new phono preamp reviews, both by Brian Bloom:

I have to say, Brian’s honest approach to both of these reviews impressed me. At one point he even says:

I can’t profess to be an expert in this category and there are a quite a few other pieces in this range.

How often do you hear such a thing from a professional reviewer? Hardly ever, although it is probably true much of the time.

I suspect many reviewers are too embarrassed to say so, but it’s essential: By telling the reader how much experience you have with a certain type of component, it helps them understand where your opinions are coming from. It also establishes trust. What a concept!
